    I'm not, but I noted these currently active Trial Locations and Investigators:

    Ohio

    Columbus

    Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center

    Status: Active

    Contact: Craig C. Hofmeister Email: Craig.hofmeister@osumc.edu

    Tennessee

    Nashville

    Vanderbilt University / Ingram Cancer Center

    Status: Active

    Contact: Robert Frank Cornell Email: robert.f.cornell@vanderbilt.edu

    The medical professionals may have to comply with Trial "blinding" protocols, and also HIPAA Privacy rules. However, ....

    You might find informal voluntary "social" inroads via contacts with or attendance at some of the local Prostate Cancer Support Groups in the Columbus, OH or Nashville, TN areas. See:

    ustoo.org/Support-Group-Nea...

    ustoo.org/Support-Group-Nea...

    Or maybe float some emails to the Group Coordinators, requesting that you pass along your query to their Group membership, etc.

    Or, if you are in the area, perhaps volunteer to be a speaker at one of their meetings, describing your own experiences, so far, on this particular Clinical Trial.

    Sometimes unexpected "good things" happen when such connections are made, and experiences are shared.

    Just some thoughts,

  • Thanks - my results do not seem to be good but nothing else available for me. Too weak for chemo & rheumatoid arthritis prevents immunology treatment. Wondering about going off trial & requesting another go with Zitiga or XTANDI. Both stopped working. I am 82.
