I see Dr. Hans Hammers at Johns Hopkins - he is an expert in kidney cancer, and very warm and sensitive.

My husband will be seeing Dr. Hammers at John Hopkins on Jan. 5th. He has renal cell ca that has metastisized to his lungs and we are hoping to get into a trial there for MDX-1106.

We feel this might be the right thing to do but of course are scared of going into the unknown territory. Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated. We have no idea how many times we will have to travel to Maryland for treatment with this doctor.

Dr Rodriguez at Hopkins is also superior.
