Mesothelioma

Last reply: 1 year ago

Any one on this chat with mesothelioma or a relative with it? My daddy was diagnosed last year and has had treatment and 8months without treatment now his mesothelioma is active again, we have been looking into clinical trials for immunotherapy but it’s a placebo trial and u and not guaranteed that u will get the treatment. Has anyone ever had this treatment or are currently on it? We could just go and have more chemotherapy but would like to hear other people’s opinion?
Thank you for reading

Dear Nicholae83, Thank you for your post. I’m sorry to read your fathers mesothelioma is active again, it must be very difficult for you all. It is of course difficult when deciding to participate in a trial, It is a good idea to speak with your father’s doctors about the trial, they will be able to explain the benefits and drawbacks of going on the trial and what it might mean for your father. I have attached a link to to our website with information about clinical trials. Please call our Nurseline on 1800200700 if you would like any advice or support, Kind regards
