Do Corticosteroids Diminish Immune Checkpoint Blockade Efficacy?

Al's Comment:

Although this article is about checkpoint inhibitors in lung cancer, the same might apply to brain tumors.  It has already been shown that steroids may decrease the effectiveness of other brain tumor treatments. Unfortunately, there are times when steroids are needed so we can't just discontinue them. (Note: if on steroids - you can not just stop cold turkey - they have to be weaned off on a specific schedule or you can die!)
