Leaving today for Adjuvent IPI trial

Forums General Melanoma Community Leaving today for Adjuvent IPI trial

    I was diagnosed with Stage 3b earlier this year. I'm leaving today to Montreal to go through the screening process for adjuvent ipi vesus placebo arm. I must admit, I'm still on the fence with 1 month HD interferon, but my oncologist feels this is the best option at this time.  There is lots of positive things about ipi for Stage 4, so I'm hoping (if I get the drug) that they'll be a benefit in keeping a reoccurence away for awhile.  Has this option been recommended by anyone else's oncologist over interferon??

    I hope that this trial is a great success so that it gives us stage 3 people more options and hope.
