Well, overall it looks like good news so far from our clinical trial.
We just got back the first CT scan since my wife started the clinical trial 6 weeks ago (2 treatments, one every 3 weeks of an antibody drug conjugate).
One liver tumor had no growth at all, the second liver tumor decreased in size by more than 50%.
The main tumor in the lung also decreased significantly in size, although by how much is not clear. The actual main tumor mass decreased by about 50%, however they saw a few small nodules close by the main tumor mass which they described as possible seeding. I have not come across that term before, but I assume that means they think the main tumor might have broken apart a bit to create some smaller fragments, so they are not sure how much of the main mass is gone and how much is simply now made up of the smaller nodules. In any case, the obstruction from the clinging of the lung to the tumor, causing the main coughing, has decreased substantially.
In addition, the small thickening they were concerned about on the adrenal they saw before was not observed, although there is a new sclerotic lesion on the L5 vertebrae that has shown up.
Otherwise no new sites observed, and all lung lesions are still confined to the Right middle lung. No growths of any lymph nodes.
So, the results of the first set looks good, and she is approved to go on with another 2 treatments.
And also helping to ease our worries….most of the wedding invitations have now been sent out!
