    Hi Cherri. Got my first infusion Oct 26 and scheduled for the next on Nov 16th. Have had no side effects at all which is great but I'm wondering if I'm on the low dosage for the trial. Great news about the shrinkgae of your Mothers tumors. I get my first CAT scans Dec 7th and hope for simular results. I'll keep in touch. Lloyd

      I've been dealing with RCC stage IV since 2001. Gone through IL2 and now, on sutent since 2008, but it is no longer effective. I'm entering a clinical trial using MDX 1106, It's a phase 2 trial to determine dosage amounts. Anyone been through the phase 1 trial or have any information ?

        Hi, Back in 2002, I went through 5 IL2/Bay50 treatments fron March thru September in a clinical trial. Had my left kidney removed in Dec, 2001. My dosage was 2 injections per day over 7 days in ICU at Dartmouth-Hitchcock in NH. The first 14 injections were not bad. Only a rash on my chest. After a weeks break I went in for the second weeks treatment. IL2 has "memory" so the side effects came back quickly:...

          Before anyone goes to a Cancer treatment center of America, be sure to ask if they accept your insurance. Since I ( and about 11 million other Americans) have a Medicare Advantage program, we are not acceptable to CTCA.

          They may be wonderful, but only to those acceptable to their board of directors!
