    Hi, i´m on yervoy in this moment, second dose, but for future opcions, in case i needed, i would like to know how to acces at NIH trial or anyway, how can i do to be harvested tumors for future as others i know have done. I´m living in Europe, so i need to know also the cost of the treatment in the case i have to pay.

    Thanks

    it was free for global patients to enter the NIH trials. I would email them with your questions. Right now I am just finding a phone number: 800-4-cancer and website is http://www.cancer.gov

    I will look for further information for you.

    Hi Catherine, Juan – can you keep me posted on options for non-US patients please? Could be an option after immunotheraphy.

    Also, Catherine – could I send you a PM?

    I will reach out to a contact there I received the info for this weekend. I believe though they are not accepting global patients any longer. Sorry, but more on Monday. If I were to do the TIL I would stick with Rosenberg’s program because of its reputation being best and most experience. Things should open up once the collaboration with pharma kicks in and they run it in a randomized trial.
