Dear Fellow Mellos;
Just talked with VERY helpful folks at Eastabrooke cancer center in Omaha. They told me the GSK 2118436 B-raf drug trial phase II (NCT 011537630) had been pulled (terminated?) by FDA nationwide. MDAnderson cannot seem to give me an answer at all. I waited 5 long weeks for MDA to lemme know i was B-raf positive. Now my CT scan 2 days ago show 3 Nodules OVER 1 cm. as well as the continued others. I completed 1 yr. I-feron 3 mths. ago.
Does ANYONE know of a viable active B-raf trial available via GSK, Novartis, Roche, Bayer?, anyplace anywhere?
I know i could get IPI, but i'm just not too impressed with the stats on it- maybe i'm wrong. At least the B-raf drugs showed miraculous results- albeit short term; AND traditional IL-2 shows Proven long term results on around 10% of people. I really wanted to do B-raf drug to at least buy some somewhat guaranteed time.
Any suggestions or trial knowledge greatly appreciated!
