Metastatic Melanoma Patient looking for a Clinical trial

Post by Sonia » Tue Jul 30, 2019 12:22 pm

Hello to all here. I would like to ask for any advice or suggestion...

I have a relative in Ukraine (Ukrainian Citizenship) who has metastatic melanoma. Unfortunately, Ukraine health system does not accommodate for any treatment or clinical trials for patients in this stage of the disease.
We are looking for a clinical trial abroad which could accept him or any other suggestions.
Financing is an issue as he would not be able to afford to bear the cost of current immunotherapy treatments like Ipi/Nivo/Pembro.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Greetings.

I would check with Clinicaltrials.gov and put the country in that you feel would be ok to travel to. Germany, Brussels, would have possibilities. France and Italy also have fairly robust programs. I will take a look as well.
