      I am a little superstitious about sharing good news but since I look to this board for inspiration as much as information I have to share the news I received last week.

      In May, I completed treatment at NIH on the randomized trial of TIL cells followed by IL2 with standard lymphodepletion OR TIL cells/IL2 with standard lymphodepletion plus total body irradiation.  I randomized to the arm of the trial that did not include TBI.  As many of you know, the treatment was very difficult but the NIH team was amazing and got me through it.

      I returned in June for my one month follow-up scans and received the news that my tumors had decreased in size an estimated 54.2%.  Huge news!   Then last week, at 2 months, scans showed they are approx. 70% smaller than before treatment and no new tumors were reported – equally important at this stage.  After receiving a big hug from my research coordinator she said that there was a lot of good news shared in clinic that day.  

      I know my story does not end here but we are hopeful to see this trend continue.  This is the first good news (concerning melanoma) we've had in over a year so we are celebrating and looking forward to a brighter summer!

      I wish all the best to everyone dealing with this disease – we need to see a bunch more NED in 2012.

          Troy, Fantastic news, we are so happy for your great results. My husband did TIL at MDAnderson in May, and we get our second set of scans this week, hope the trend continues! Keep up the good work and we hope and pray your T cells continue to battle on for a long, long time! Enjoy your summer, you earned a well deserved break from treatment! God bless, Valerie (Phil’s wife)

                      Congratulations! And thank you for the inspiration. I am, right now, on the same treatment and on my second bag of IL-2. It’s quite rough, I know now from experience! But hopefully all worth it. Well done.

                      Ben.

                            Ben, 

                            Hard to tell but you should be about 5-6 doses of IL-2 in.  I'm guessing you are feeling pretty crummy.   Keep it up, it doesn't last that long and you'll be feeling better soon.  I made it through 7 doses before agreeing to stop.  They told me there is little to no correlation between the number of IL-2 doses and the type of response people have.  Good luck with the rest of the treatment.  Just a word of warning – 1-2 days after stopping the IL-2 I started having daily fevers that would last for 6-10 hours and would just take everything out of me. These too will pass, I wasn't really expecting them and was surprised at how bad they made me feel.   Once we were sure they weren't related to infection, the team was happy the fevers were happening…. they suspected the cells were happily finding tumor cells and having a party.  

                            Good Luck, Troy

                            ps.  where are you receiving treatment?

                                  Hi Troy, 

                                  Yes, I am definitely feeling pretty lousy. I've had four bags of IL-2 so far, though my remperatue is running persistantly very high, delaying each dose. Thanks for the advice, I know it's only temporary. 

                                  I am having the treatment done in Manchester, UK actually. They're running small pilot study here and some other centres in Europe.

                                  Here's to good respnses!

                                      I hope, by now, you are feeling better.  I remember it wasn't until I started to feel a bit better that I realized just how entirely weakened I was.  As the appetite comes back so does the strength!  

                                      Just wanted to let you know I'm pulling for you and wishing a quick recovery from this and success in the treatment.

                                              Did you cease the IL2 due to kidney or liver failure?  I've had 7 bags now and I'm feeling awful! My oncologist thinks that it may be time to stop, although probable that another bag may happen tomorrow (day 5).  

                                              Thanks,

                                                        Truthfully, I don't remember why we stopped – I was pretty out of it.  I think my liver function studies were becoming a concern.  My kidneys weren't working great but I don't think they were too worried.  My hazy recollection is that the team felt comfortable with the number of doses I had received and didn't want to push me into having a potentially damaging complication.  I was at NIH, the place with the most experience with this, by far, so I trusted the doctors when they said not to push through.  I am one who, in this type of stuff, thinks more must be better but they definitely didn't agree with that thinking.  

                                                        I Hope this helps and remember – you will feel better soon and this will be worth it.  They wouldn't have chosen you for this treatment unless they thought you are a good candidate and can handle it.

                                                              Hi Troy

                                                              Did you cease the IL2 due to kidney or liver failure?  I've had 7 bags now and I'm feeling awful! My oncologist thinks that it may be time to stop, although probable that another bag may happen tomorrow (day 5).  

                                                              Thanks, 

                                                              Ben.

                                                              Congratulations! And thank you for the inspiration. I am, right now, on the same treatment and on my second bag of IL-2. It’s quite rough, I know now from experience! But hopefully all worth it. Well done.

                                                              Ben.

                                                                                                                              Thank you for your very kind words.  I hope everything continues to be managable for you.  I know Dr. Margolin will keep an eye on you.  One thing you might want to explore (I don't know many details about the trial) is a new trial that NIH is just starting.  Basically, it combines giving vemurafenib for a few weeks before doing the TIL protocol.  I know they are pretty excited about it but it has just started.  When they talked to me about possibly going on it, I would have been the first patient.  I, however, didn't qualify because in order to do it you have to have at least 1 SC nodule that is measurable.  Both of my SC's were harvested for my TIL…. Again, I don't know the details of the study and of course you must be BRAF +.  

                                                                                                                              Good luck and all the best,

Again, I don't know the details of the study and of course you must be BRAF +.
