In Reply to: Re: mom and a small cell lung cancer trial posted by Sari on May 20, 2000 at 19:44:19:

: : my mother was diagnosed in january of 2000 with small cell lung cancer. she went through chemo and radiation and has gone into a partial remission. we have now entered her into a clinical trial which only involves 5 vaccines. it is aimed at teaching the immune system to recognize small cell and kill it. we saw the data of the inital study and 85% of the people who took these have not have their cancer return. we would like prayers to hope this works for my mother too, and if anyone else is in a similar situation with small cell i will be glad to share more about it. thank you Where is this trial being done? I am in remission from small-cell lung cancer, but am told it will recur. I pray for your mother's recovery, Diane. From Sari

I am interested in any information you can provide me with- my dad was diagnosed with limited sclc in April 1999. He underwent chemo and radiation. He was in remission until Feb. 2000. The cancer came back but is still contained in his lung. His doctor basically gave up so we took him to M.D.Anderson (we live in Texas) where he is on a trial -
The trial your mother was on sounds very promising. Please e-mail me any information you have on it. Thanks you!!! Melva
