Thing is, the trials I'm looking to try and get him in are part of the future progress we all want, potentially. Timing is a cunt. Any progress is too late for some poor bastard, I guess. Lots of trials though, excluded ~20 already on clinical eligibility and still about the same left.


And fuck off with the nerd :tongue: Eric or LSD&2Es can advise on that one. I'm proper outside-ready, me. Barely on the spectrum.

Fuck this shit.


I'd just like to offer the correct SqB response to this post.

I think it's 'brothers-in-law'.

You're quite right, you think I'd know, I've got six of the cunts. Good job etc and so on.

It's excellent stuff. I wrote a little bit about immunotherapy up there somewhere ^^^^, this stuff relates to ongoing work in the area by several groups and biotech companies.

This is really only the beginning. I'm very hopeful that this and the other methods, which can target solid tumours, are going to be game-changing.

The articles are terrible though, smooshing together lots of different things with no differentiator or explanation. And the companies behind the trial reported don't seem to get a mention. Sack the Press Officer!

It's better, but still very incomplete.

On a similar note, do we know anything about these neurostatins. Is it real and will it be in time for cuntoes like us?

Don't know anything about Alzheimer's TBH. Not my area. Sorry.

Just been told they've changed Mum's treatment, she's given me far more detail this time. She's been on tablets of some variety for 10 months (after being told they'd probably only work for 5) but the biggest tumour on her liver has grown from 22 to 27mm apparently and now its back to chemo. Gemcitabine & paclitaxel, 3 cycles, 3 weeks apart then a scan, 3 more cycles or a change of drugs depending on the results of that.

Best of luck to her with it, hope she tolerates it well. BiL didn't compete his last cycle due to kidney toxicity, so we're waiting on scans etc.

Fingers crossed, still not a fucking clue on overall timescales (no fucker is prepared to stick their neck on the block with even a vague estimate), it's 16 months since the confirmed diagnosis and outwardly I still wouldn't know but I know that pretty much means fuck all. Behind closed doors Mum says she's generally out of breath very quickly, still not as bad as before she had her first bought of chemo she says and she got through that with minimal fuss/side effects so is hoping for more of the same, guess we'll know soon enough.

Not commented on this thread before, been kind of avoiding reading it. However it seems that cancer wants to fuck with my family wether I acknowledge it or not :roll:
Brother in law diagnosed with throat cancer Jan last year, responded very well to treatment etc doing well.
Mums sister diagnosed lung cancer Oct last year, died Dec.
Mum diagnosed liver cancer Jan this year, small tumour just had an ablation, if thats the correct term, to burn it away. Went well scan in 3 weeks to find out.
And finally I've got an appointment on Thursday to find out if i'm gonna join the one nut club :pale: :puker:
Fuck cancer...
