No, Krista, we have been fortunate enough that even our most severe cases of pneumonitis have responded to high dose steroids, but I could see how the thought consideration could come up.
I suppose that we may in that instance consider temsirolimus or another anti-rejection med, which would be utilized with a patient who had a lung transplant- like we do with mycophenalate & irAE related hepatitis.
