I could not start the trial yesterday. My hemoglobin was 8.9 and for the GDC-0152 trial, the drug company wants it to be at least 9.0 on the first day of treatment (it was 9.0 when I signed the protocol). On Monday I´ll get a blood transfusion and we will decide which is the best trial, based on the results of my blood work. When I first signed the other protocol, the GDC-0941, I was not eligible because for that trial, the hemoglobin had to be at least ten.
These numbers are not realistic, don´t the drug companies know that we all run on low blood counts?
