My daughter was given immunotherapy on a humanitarian basis (free) because chemo had stopped working and she did not qualify for the study.  She was HER2 and PD-L 1 negative.  We were told the chances of it working were less, but it could still work and were unsure why, and they were trying to figure out why.  We were also told the effects may not last as long since she was PD-L1 negative.  She was not able to be on it for very long because of other issues.  Sometimes now they use more than 1 immunotherapy drug to start off with.
