Trial at the Christie

Hi, Since my last post about Immunotherapy a lot has happened, I was initially going to start on Docetaxel/Nintedanib tomorrow as the trial at the Christie was full. Then i had a call from them to say there was a place for me after all and i start the screening process on Thursday. I am nervous but exited at the same time and while i know its a trial drug and may not work we never know till we try. I have a Melanoma mutation in my Lung cancer which made me a prime candidate for this Pan-raf inhibitor trial. Is anyone else on this trial at the Christie in Manchester? if they are it would be good to compare notes.

Good luck with the trial. Sounds like it was hard to get on to. We tried to get my husband on to an immunotherapy trial in London but he didn't have the right kind of mutation so it didn't work out. It would definitely have been a good option though if he could have tried. All the best to you. Kx
