Very clearly written. I would be interested in hearing your experience with the clinical trial. You may have picked a bad one. Hopefully there are a few good ones currently.

I'll put my experience with the clinical trial in the next few days. Most clinical trials I believe are detrimental to patients. The main reason is the researchers running the trials are primarily interested in PFS and/or OS and to get objective figures they will discourage you from other treatment options which may influence their results or may mean they have to cross you off the trial. Phase 1 studies can be dangerous, In phase 2 dosage trials u may not get the right dose etc. The main thing is to do a lot of research and weigh up the risks. Some trials are worth the risk most are not.
