    A melanoma patient going through TIL treatment at Moffitt right now, is blogging his experience for the Philadelphia Inquirer. He’s due to get his expanded T-cells reinfused in 2 weeks, on Jan. 7 2013. His second blog entry is here, “http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/healthcare/Patient-1-Medically-Speaking.html” class=”bbcode_url”>http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/healthcare/Patient-1-Medically-Speaking.html“.

    His trial combines TIL treatment with Yervoy infusions as well. Per his blog, This treatment has never been tried in this order before – basically shoving the t-cell part in between the Yervoy treatments. So, as far as the doctors can tell, I’ll be the first person on the planet to give this a shot – hence, “Patient #1.”

    He plans to update the blog as treatment continues.


    well done all of you thus far – we will have fingers crossed for the TILS trasfer in Jan – have a great xmas with your little family

    PD1 may also be used in the near future instead of IL2. We hope for the best. I’ve been following this blog as well. Thanks for sharing.
