I would love to hear your experiences. It's been suggested my husband might be a good match for a clinical trial being held at NCI/NHI here in DC.
He is still in the staging process although they "suspect" he has an indolent type of MCL. We will know more after BMB (today...I hope it's not terrible!) and PET scan next week. He has had no treatement yet whatsoever.
Good idea? Bad idea? Just go for standard treatment or take a chance? The study involves EPOCH-R-B with or without Velcade maintenance.
