Side effect update for ADC trial: This week Steve’s blood work showed continued decrease in white cell counts, low enough that he was given a prescription for antibiotics. He is also experiencing significant hair loss. He also feels achy with a cold, which I hope is a separate thing and not related to treatment.

The next infusion is Tuesday so we will how the low (really low) white cell count is treated.

He has continued to see (feel) decreases in subcutaneous nodules, and no new ones. Prior to treatment there were new ones almost every day. Again, some of it may be the prior ipi delayed effect, but still so glad and thankful to see some significant response from this treatment.
