: : : 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
My father who lives in England has been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer which appears to have spread to the lymph node. The diagnosis is so recent that we still awaiting treatments. The trial your mom is on (or was) appears to be promising. His family is really worried and would appreciate some detailed information with regards to this trial. I am prepared to take him anywhere in the world if treatment sounds promising. I would be grateful if you could reply to me ASAP at JunaidBakali@hotmail.com. Good luck to your mom!
