Clinical Trial Update - Pembrozilumab

Hello All,

It has been awhile since I have posted. Have tried to take a mental and emotional break since some of the pas sings earlier this year.

The trial is going well. About a 42 percent reduction in lymph node tumor size. Am handling the treatment, which is so much easier than FOLFOX and FOLFIRI. No take home bottle! Side effects come and go. Still fatigued at times.

Have to stay on treatment despite reduction so no treatment breaks. Am optimistic that I will make 5 years. Am on my 45th total treatment over the past 3 plus years. What a grind, but am still here!

Blessings,

Tom
