I am being treated for pneumonia at the hospital. My blood cultures and sputum have not grown anything.
Viral panel was negative last week.
I am in a clinical trial of BR +\- Idelalisib. I finished the BR while acquiring this pneumonia. A dry cough without a fever for 3 weeks.
I am hugely better now. My Hem/Onc stopped the Idelalisib when they started the iv antibiotics.
He suspects the Idelalisib is causing the pneumonia and not bacteria or viruses.
Is this common? I want to stay in the trial.
