Seemed like a long wait from my initial consult Re: MDX-1106 and finally getting it done. But only 4 weeks. Lots of scans and a biopsy. Enough blood work to keep a vampire family of 4 happy. On Monday, the day began with 6 vials of blood followed by an hour infusion. Had to stay for a 12 hour day so they could cont. to draw blood and take vital signs. Infusion was no big deal. No side effects what so ever. Had to return tues and thurs for more blood work. Last count was 26 vials of blood this week! More on monday the 19th, then nothing until next infusion Jan 3rd. Seems way to easy for something soooo.. promising. Pretty much repeat everything again in January, then just infusions every 3 weeks after that. My response will determine number of infusions. I feel VERY fortunate to have been given this opportunity.
