    I talked with Dr Weber today…had scans etc..I remainstage 4 NED! 2 treatments left in the 30 month trial. I also discussed the possible release of BMS’s anti pd-1. He says there is no way its going to go for approval UNTIL phase 2 trials are completed and we are still in phase 1. We have been in phase 1 trials since 2010 at Moffitt and still in phase 1 trials.

    Now perhaps this will benefit some of you all…Dr Weber has opened the trial for resected melanoma to Stage 3 c… he has only 5 slots left in this trial. If you are interested in either trial you can e-mail him at jeffrey.weber@moffitt.org .
