    Hi Bob,

     

    I saw you post regarding you sayiing:  "Monday I will start on a new trial, called VEGF, with a drug that works to stop the growth of new blood vessels to tumors."

    I am interested in knowing more about the VEGF clinical trial. Would you know the gov clinical trial number for this VEGF trial or any information/link where I can read about this trial.

    You mentioned that if this trial failed then you would do IPI.

    I am just curious why your doctor just does not put you on IPI???

    There is some discussion on clinical trial ethics & it seems like you are trying all these "new" trial  which is great for furthering sciences & helping with research, however, why are you not just doing IPI because it has proven to have my long term durable response against melanoma??

    What does your doctor say about IPI???

    Thanks for replying

     

    Good Luck
