Have been on the Stimuvax trial for just over a year and my tumor is gradually getting smaller. I pray to god that everyone with NSCLC has access to this product and that it works for them. May they find a cure soon.

I would love to get into the Stimuvax study, unfortunately I am stage 4 and they are only recruiting/ considering stage 3 individuals at this time. I was wondering if I could get it off study through Compassinate use protocols?

The GVAX studies showed immunotherapy (vaccines) have a real place in cancer treatment. of the 33 patients in the phase2 GVAX study 3 were completely cured ! (2 of those 3 had BAC components to their tumor) . Unfortunately they dicountinued the GVAX studies for lung cancer (they are still going on for pancreatic and prostate) because a few individuals died during the necessary surgery to get the tumor samples.

I woiuld love a shot at GVAX.

I am considering going into the HyperAcute Vaccine study at the NCI in Bethesda Maryland. I will go there next week for evaluation.

Also the Cuban Govertment vaccine has been reported to have great results as well.

If Anyone knows if I can get Stimuvax off study, I would appreciate the information.

Joe,

I don't know if you remember the MCMRC doctors/specialists we recruited to be our first "ask the experts?" a few years ago?

Anyway, they are a great bunch of folks. Too busy to be online with us but they are really dedicated to research, clinical trials and cancer survivorship.

I'd give John (Dr. Nemunaitis) a call to see if its possible for you to be considered.

I've toured their facilities and they have housing as well for patients who come from out of state. It's state of the art and they are really nice folks.

It might be worth a shot.
