Is it necessary to hold immunotherapy during a 4-6wk steroid taper after resolution of immunotherapy related toxicity?   

Would you ever considering re-starting immunotherapy before completing the taper?

According to the new guildelines on managing immunotherapy related toxicity created by the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) Toxicity, cases where steroids are started and the toxicity resolves, a 4-6wk steroid taper should be pursued and immunotx held until steroids are completely off.
