    driving me insane. Millions of thanks to the people who help me.

    Can I get a definition of “reinduction”?

    Reinduction of Yervoy, as I understand it, is to start the therapy all over again, just like the first time it was given.

    As a follow-up question, are there any standards used to determine who would qualify and when a reinduction could begin?

    Thanks.

    I think the standards are very loose so far. Certainly there must be stability of disease and some reduction of disease. How much progression is probably going to be individual to a person and their doctor, but let me dig some more.

    Hi Justin,

    Hope all went well this week for your mother-in-law. Have you made any finally decisions on her treatment?

    Wishing you all the best.

    James
