Hi guys! Hope you all are doing well during this time. I know I am getting stir crazy. I’m a restaurant worker that’s been out of work since March 16th. No end in sight here in Maryland. Ryan is doing well! He’s cruising on a good plane right now. We are happy with Keytruda and the relief he has received from it. Not sure what’s going on inside since the last PET scan but I’m hoping it’s keeping it at bay or still continuing to shrink! (Best case scenario)! His thyroid function has not been rechecked yet, but some of the symptoms have been getting better at the low dose he’s on - will recheck in 3 weeks. Kidney function was slightly high so have been directed to drink plenty of water to try and flush.
I have come across an awesome new drug! Given I haven’t done my complete research into it yet. But I’d love to share in case someone is curious as well. Relatlimab - a new immunotherapy drug that has a different target. Most of the immunotherapy drugs out are PD-1 inhibitors. This one targets the LAG3 protein. If anyone has any more info or has looked into it deeper please share!!!!
Be safe everyone and much love from MD
