Hi everyone, I just got the results of my first set of 12-week scans after 4 treatments of MK-3475 (anti-PD-1 immunotherapy clinical trial drug). And the winner is....me! Almost seventy percent shrinkage in my tumors! No side effects-in fact, my hair is growing back. A thirty-minute infusion with no pre-meds! I just get up and go home, no nausea or fatigue. In fact, I feel like my old, pre-stage IV NSCLC self. The trial is expanding, so seats may be opening up. I LOVE this drug.
