      Actually, interferon is immunotherapy, the immunotherapy I was thinking of is the type they use for stage IV patients.  (biochemotherapy, interleukin 2, ipilimumab etc.  As for the trial, I doubt they would make him commit for 2 years if he were to progress.  That said, the whole placebo thing would make it less attractive to me.  Is it the oncovex trial?

      If not, this is the one I would choose.
