Topic: Dendritic cell vaccine therapy
It is time to post some research that has been going on in this area. I don't like to post everything I'm researching until I feel confident that the information is correct and supported by studies and peer-reviewed articles, but on the other hand, we are all looking for something that works. Hopefully many of us are looking into and being sent a lot of information from various sources that we are researching.
I'm going to have Rick add a section on the discussion board called "Research" where you can add things that you are researching and others can add to your research and information if they are also researching the same items or issues. This way we can coordinate efforts more easily and we aren't replicating difficult contacts over and over.
With that being said, I have had email contact with Dr. Gorter but Marion Schwartz has spoken to him on the phone 2 or 3 times. I'm hoping Marion will be comfortable posting portions of her conversation with Dr. Gorter so that everyone can benefit from the information.
We have had outside confirmation of dendritic cell vaccine therapy as well. I will post this as well. There will be more information coming as we also have a contact who just had this therapy and hopefully will be able to provide us with more information.
This is where you can get the article. On the bottom of the article are three links, one is the address for Dr. Gorters clinic in Cologne, Germany, the other is an email address for him (which he will very quickly respond to) the final is a presentation on Dendritic cells that he presented at the 2004 ASCO conferences (peer-reviewed article) . Please take a minute to read "everything" first so that we aren't pummelling him with the same questions. Also, please read Marion's transcript and the transcript I will post from a research oncologist who looked over the information for me and gave very insightful comments.
We don't know if anyone who has cholangio on this website has used this treatment but we would be very interested to know more.
We will keep you updated as more information comes to us but until then, if you have any information be sure to post it.
