Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Researchers characterize lung inflammation associated with some cancer immnunotherapy

Immune checkpoint inhibitors uses the immune system to fight cancer. But among patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who receive checkpoint inhibitor immunotherapy, recent reports suggest that up to 19% may develop a dangerous complication: an inflammation of their lungs, dubbed checkpoint inhibitor pneumonitis (CIP).
