Topic: Phase II trial at Ireland Cancer Center (UH)
Over the past couple of weeks my dad seems to really have gone down hill. He is very badly jaundiced and he is just so tired. He seems to have all the symptoms associated with liver failure, but then again others have said all he needs is a stent. In any case, we are headed to University Hospital's Ireland Cancer Center tomorrow to meet with Dr. Joseph Bokar about my dad's possible pariticipation in a Phase II clinical trial. The title of the trial is Adjuvant Therapy for Patients withPrimary Uveal Melanoma with Genetic Imbalance. The applicable disease sites are Melanoma, skin. This seems very odd to me but from what my mom told me they have found that this treatment has had some positive results with liver cancer patients. Once I get more information, Iwill post again. Just wanted to throw this out there in case anyone had heard of it and cared to comment. Not sure if my dad will even be a candidate at this point, but maybe the information will help someone else.
