Re: Treatment Plan

Forums General Melanoma Community Treatment Plan Re: Treatment Plan


      Reading over your post, I noticed that you said the higher dose IPI was more effective than the lower dose. I was wondering if your onconologist actually told you that, or if you have read some literature that states this. Over the last several months, the information on this board seemed to argue that the lower dose was just as effective. Many patients here have opted for the ipi compassionate trial on the belief that the 3 mg dose can be effective.

      Best of luck with this combo treatment. I am glad they have made the higher dose ipi available in this trial.
