    UPMC is the leading institution for research in Pittsburgh. However, they still prescribe older therapies such as interferon and IL2, so keep that in mind. But they are getting into the newer immunotherapies. Where are you coming from for travel?

    I live in Pittsburgh, but I don’t care where I have to go for a second opinion and/or treatment. Thank you so much.
