Interleukin 2 VS Temodar Advice

Forums General Melanoma Community Interleukin 2 VS Temodar Advice

  • This topic is empty.

      I have two options while waitng to get into a clinical trial.  Interleukin 2 or Temodar.  It's important to know that I've had a brain tumor and I realize that can (but rarely) cause problems with Interleukin 2.  

      There is some research out there that has shown that Interleukin 2 followed by Temodar can be very effective.

      Any advice….wondering if I should suffer through Interleukin or try the more mild Temodar and hope I get good results.

      Dr. Lipson, my oncologist, thinks I will get into a clinical trial at Hopkins sometime this spring.  But there are no guarantees….
