My husband has been receiving Keytruda every three weeks for 21 weeks with a shot of Peg once a week. His PET scan last week showed no new tumors and his existing tumors did not grow in size. Has anyone had an experience with a like treatment? We were told to give the trial more time. Any thoughts on response time or effectiveness?
However, this report is on pembrolizumab/keytruda alone…not combined with interferon…but perhaps you will still find it informative.
I wish you and your husband well. Celeste
