        Thank you for posting Frank.  Hopefully people will look these up – it's not something many oncologists recommend at your visits, but once we asked Dave's he looked into them and agreed that he should try to get into one. 

        Thanks again!

              Thanks Maria. I think that this treatment gives us real hope, and hope is what people struggling
              with melanoma truly need.

              Best wishes

                I do not know about all areas but at least at NIH for now you have to be HLA +.  The testing to find this out is a specific blood test. With so many posts about this lately I asked Val to ask for me and she did. She is at NIH right now getting randomized today to see what arm she is in.

                      I know that Val mentioned HLA testing, but I believe that is only for the specific gene targeted therapies (ESO and MAGE trials require it I know).  I didn't think they required HLA testing for the standard TIL & IL-2.
