Hello everyone,


I am a newbie here and trying to catch up. Ihave read about Merck pd1.


I know that there are a few locations sites in California that people are saying are open.


I would sincerely appreciate it if anyone can CONFIRM that a Merck EAP is in fact open and are now going thru the qualification process or has a date to start infusions.

We live in Northern CA, My  husband is stage 4.  He  has failed IPI & Braf. We need to get into the Merck EAP ASAP.

Thank in advance for your reply. God Bless you all!

Yes my nurse confirmed the one in beverly hills CA on March 31st and I had failed zel but now I also have to fail the taf/mek combo so dunno if other docs are doing that too but I was doing great on it until a few days ago. Sorry sidetracked. I'm not sure if that one is different that the angeles clinic but she did not confirm it.

Anyway here is a link for catherine pool on the international site with other states plus you can contact her as well.

Beverly Hills Cancer Center has the Merck PD-1 extended access program . My husband is stage 4,  recently finished his second round of Yervoy and started P-1 last week.  BHCC is a wonderful place.  Dr. O'Day is a renowned melanoma expert.
