Catherine,

Have you seen this study being done by Dr. Curti in Oregon? It’s another twist on IL-2 treatment and the results have been pretty impressive in the stage I trial recently completed. 66% complete or partial response for 12 patients. You still have the rough toxicities but the success rate makes it a little more tolerable.

Unfortunately this info probably won’t be able to help Diana but I think it’s another viable option that may be available in the future.
