I just began a trial at Rockefeller University Hospital. It is a trial of a topical drug called DPCP; if you Google DPCP + Melanoma + Australia, you will see that the drug has had good results in Australian trials.
They are looking for about 10-12 more recruits. The team came highly recommended by my docs at Sloan Kettering. The trial # for ClinicalTrials.gov is NCT01711684.
I went this morning for “Day 0 Visit”. They took 2 biopsies, one each of a mel met and of healthy skin on my leg. Also did ultrasound, etc. They put sensitizing doses of the drug on a few places, now I get to watch and wait and hope for a reaction in 14 days. Yup, hoping for a rash!
I hope this is helpful.
All the best,
