Clinical Trial Failure

I don't think anyone at the Board has mentioned bieng part of this, but it is important to be aware of, especially members with T-cell issues.

    Strange demographic - 20

    Strange demographic - 20 somethings, and a strange dynamic in the unpredicted and undesireable side effect. I had fludarabine and Cyclophosphamide as conditioning for my transplant (it is SOP at Fred Hutch) and nearly everyone I know maintains that I survived it. This is a huge blow to the trial, but the data, morbid as it is, will certainly help to guide future trials. However, going to a less effective conditioning regimen seems only to guarantee worse overall results. A true catch-22 and sadly, part and parcel of research.
