      Update to contribute to the IPI Yervoy message of hope for patients:

       After first course of ipi (March to May 2011), substantial partial response with disappearances of some tumors. A few active spots still showing on the pet scan. Overall status is now basically stable. Brain still clear.

      Re-induction phase should start next week.

      No major side effects in the first round. A bit of fatigue and "mumbling" tummy plus (temporarily) a bit high eosinophils but overall…an "enjoyable" treatment compared to the previous ones! I'm told this is predictive of how I should bear the re-induction. We'll see…
