It has been close to 9 months since I last felt like posting anything. This clinical trial has been relentless as so many are with all the testing and documentation. There is enough cancer in my life - I don't need to blog about it as well. In short I'm still bouncing around on MLN8237. Disease assessment (re-staging) is every 6 weeks (2 cycles). The astonishing 75% response after cycle 6 has held. My numbers fluctuate a lot which I can't correlate with anything in particular. The doubling of a marker after a 75% response is still well below baseline levels.
I can now cruise through the Holidays and that dreaded 6 year MM anniversary and hit the 1 year mark on this trial before my next assessment.
Happy Holidays :-)
