NSCLC Vaccine Holds Promise of Survival

Anyone recently been diagnosed with Stage IIIA/IIIB NSCLC should investigate a new 1300 patient trial now enrolling throughout the world. This is the next generation of vaccines that have not yet been approved but have demonstrated through earlier Stage II trials, to be much better than Avastin, Tarceva or any other first line therapy in terms of SURVIVAL. Another benefit is that it has minimal side effects.

The vaccine is called "STIMUVAX." Merck KGaA and EMD Pharmacueticals are the trial sponsers. There is a video that you should watch at Biomira dot com. You should visit clinical trials dot gov for trial information.

Pay attention to the survival data. I would like to hear about your success. I can also put you in touch with more information on the web that you can research and decide for yourself.

My grandmother died many years ago of NSCL. She never had this opportunity. If this is helpful to anyone, I would like to know. I have talked to one of the lead Doctors in this trial. I will be more than happy to give you more information if anyone cares to e-mail me.

Best of luck to all who have this disease. Don't give up hope. You can beat this if you have the knowlege of knowing all that is available to you.

Hello,

I am very interested in that vaccine for my father who has been diagnosed with NSCLC. How can we obtain more information about it? I will appreciate if you can help.

Many thanks,

Certainly. Go to.. clinical trials (dot) gov ...wesbite and enter this identifier in the search columm NCT00409188. Another very good resource is the targetedtherapies (dot) org website. Click on the roundtable discussion with C. Butts MD and you will be amazed with this second generation vaccine.

NSCLC Therapies should be all about SURVIVAL and not about selling drugs for profit. Good luck to you.
