*Urgent Please Read* Phase ll Clinical Trial of BMS-936558 Shrinking Mom's Metatastic RCC

Hello All,

I'm praising God and want to urgently share the fantastic response my Mom is having to Phase ll Clinical Trial of antibody BMS-936558. My Mom is battling Metatastic RCC and was previously on Sutent, Nexavar, and Votrient. She has been on this clinical trial for 12 weeks and has had a significant response including some tumors are no longer visible and others have shrunk 50-70% !!! She also has had little to no side effects, is 67 years young and still working ! I believe many of you have a good chance at qualifying for this trial as you must have been on at least 1 prior Antio-Angiogenic Therapy with cancer progression, but not more than 3 of these therapies. Examples are Sutent, Nexavar, Votrient and I believe also Afinitor. I urge you all to go to ClinicalTrials.gov and search for trial identifier NCT01354431 to read more about this trial and see if there is a partipating location near you. Please let me know if you have questions.

God Bless You All,

Cherri

Hi Cherri,

I am so glad your Mom has found something to help her!  Thank you so very much for sharing this information on the forum, there are so many people out there that need a miracle!

I was diagnosed with Stage IV RCC with lung mets in 2007.  For two and a half years I took Sutent 50mg, 28 days on and 14 off.  Then, my kidney was removed.  The Sutent was stopped a month before surgery and I have not taken any more cancer drugs.  It has been 20 months since the surgery. I just had another set of scans and lab work this week; there was no cancer! 

God is so awesome!  Without my Faith and all the answered prayers, I don't think I would have made it.

It is good to know the Researches are constantly coming up with new ideas to hopefully wipe out this monster thing called Renal Cell Cancer.

I wish your mom the very best and I hope she can soon put all of this behind her and get on with her life.

Again, thank you so much for sharing and please keep us posted on your mom's progress.

Blessings,

B

We are told that this study is now closed to enrolment. Despite having signed the consent in mid October, and having planned to receive his infusion today, we are now informed the study is closed. Can anyone tell us if it is indeed closed to enrolment and when that happened? There seems to have been some "ball dropping" from the team here that may have resulted in missing a window of opportunity.

That is AWEsome!!!  Continued good luck to you!

My husband's advanced cancer is of the Papillary type, so he doesn't qualify for this one.  We are screwed out of most studies because of this.   If anyone hears of anything, please let me know!!

The phase 1clinical trial of a dendritic vaccine at Roswell Park Cancer institute in Buffalo is just starting. It is for all cancer types if they demonstrate NYESO1 protein. Most cancers do, so you might be qualified. Just go to the Roswell site and look for "Dendritic vaccine at Roswell Park cancer institute". Watch the video. It is VERY HOPEFUL! They have added Rapamycin, an old anti-rejection drug to the vaccine which they expect to confer permanent cancer killing ability to the immune system. We are more excited about this than anything else. Also- no reported side effects! Best wishes for full recovery! God Bless You!
