Forget all I told you about the PI3-Kinase inhibitor trial. Today I signed a different protocol. My next alphabet soup will have the following letters and numbers:
This drug is supposed to limit the activity of proteins found in our bodies that prevent apoptosis (programmed cell death). Soon we will see if GDC-0152, an IAP protein antagonist is the ONE that will make my tumors collapse. We hope so.
The new trial is going on at the Dana-Farber. I start on Tuesday, the 7th of April and I get to stay overnight at the Brigham Hotel ;) for observation.
