    I would appreciate a response from the lady whose husband has completed 3 rounds of IPI.  She had a reply to Nancy on 8/18/2010.

    My Dr. has entered my name for a clinical trial for IPI.  He said they might not accept me or rule me out for some other reason.

    And they kind pick canidates on the lottery system. I have had Melanoma for 4-5 year .For awhile it did not grow but has started again.

    I have just finished 3 rounds of Termodar and it didn't do much good.  My problem is I am a 78 yr. old male with serious heart disease
