There is trial for chemo immunotherapy for crc:http://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT02375672
I’m not qualified to participate due to my disease is not measurable. Both onc at MGH and Dana suggested this treatment. I had 12 sessions of Folfox + Avastin last year. This year I have 4 sessions of folfiry before the surgery but folfiry didn’t work well since the cancer still spreading.
My onc just called me today, he said there is trial with vaccines + immunotherapy that he will try to put me in due to my neuropathy but again, the same issue of qualification as my disease is not measurable. I’m hoping mri will show the spread in ileum. I will see my onc this Friday to discuss about this new option.
Foundation One test is scheduled and hopefully the results will come back before my first treatment.
B.t.w: per my onc, MGH will have in house ctDNA in a few weeks.
