Re: Starting IPI/Temodar trial at MDA

      I live near Atlanta but have to do Ipi treatments in Knoxville. Atlanta had no trials at the time. I finished my fourth treatment on Monday. I have felt very limited side effects a little rash and that is about it. In regards to Temodar, most people just have fatgue.

      I took Temodar for 24 months but I was on six different chemos at the same time.

      If you need someone while in Atlanta, send me an e-mail and I will give you my number. Unfortunitly I cannot drive
