    Dear Philip,  I have the same vibe about this test. I am on my way there to grill him about it anyway, figuring I might learn something. Will post if there is anything interesting. I wish I were a mouse! Good luck getting your internet back - I would be crazy without it... Best, Chris

      PhilipJax, here are the answers to your questions, followed by my questions. 1) I am 59 and in excellent physical condition, work out with weights 3 x a week and I can walk a mile in 15 minutes or maybe less. I also spin/cycle when I have time. 2) The name of the agent is KO-947, and here is the link: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03051035 Unfortunately, I would have move to Pheonix for a 2 years so it k...

        Thank you PhilipJax I agree with most of the points in your response, and I think it just highlights how difficult decisions are when there is so much disparate information. Let me put my situation in context. After the distal, everyone, I mean everyone acted as if I was in the lucky group that really might be cured - perfect margins, relatively young, good health, no lymph involvement, etc. While the scan in Nov sh...

          Dear PhilipJax, First, thank you very much for all your hard work. I try to keep up through my own research, but sometimes I feel I am digging down the wrong holes, unknowlingly. Your posts are invaluable. I have gone through several of your earlier posts, and noticed that you feel that IRE is superior to SBRT. I am trying to understand the difference in both procedure and results. I am researching my options for 2...

            Helen,  can you get another opinion. It is true that immunotherapy and vaccines have been unsuccessful to date, the are now combining them with other drugs, sort of like the AIDs "cocktail" approach. It really  depends on  how much risk you guys are taking by putting off the chemo. According to my doctor (Eileen O'Reilly at Sloan) some people with lung mets dont even to on chemo for 2-3 years. FYI, my ...

              Helen, I had a similar thing happen to me. I had a successful surgery, was Stage IIa, zero lymph nodes, perfect margins. I  just finished chemo when the May scan showed that some unidentified specks in the lung had grown a little. Had a biopsy (sort of a big deal in the lungs) and confirmed there was a small amount of PDAC there.  My oncologist tells me many things - 1) lung mets are much easier to control...

                Stepuna, my conversation with PanCan was interesting although I'm not sure that helpful. Basically I was trying to find out 1) how does one decide on an immunotherapy trial when doing one seems to preclude you from other trials in the future 2) why would someone do a study in only one city and 3) how will Precision Promise work, and will that open up studies to my doctor that are being performed somewhere else. Most ...

                  Thanks Stepuna, I just heard back from the person at NANT she said: This study will be enrolling subjects at the Chan Soon-Shiong Institutes for Medicine Immuno-Oncology Center in El Segundo, CA.  Now I'm trying to find out how long one would have to be in CA to do the trial, etc. There is a really good trial in Phoenix, but you are getting IVs and such for something every 3rd day and this could go on for a...

                    Stepuna, where did you find the information that this trial was only given in California. It looks interesting and in reading the the description it said it wasnt yet recruiting and didnt give location. Thanks, Chris

                      Philip - this a an extremely important document, thank you so much for sending it along. It is shocking how much information some doctors hold back (or don't know). Chris
