I hope so as well in fact.

All: Although my CA-19-9 lab values gave us some cause for optimism,my latest abdominal CT-Scan reveals that the metastatic tumor in the right lobe of my liver has increased in volume by 50% from 3.5 cm to 7.1 cm. As the tumor cells were laughing at the chemo poison, whilethe Taxotere was systematically destroying the rest of my body withloss of all replicative stem-cell function from bone marrow to gut liningand skeletal muscle satellite cells in particular, we determined to terminate the chemo treatment that would normally have started two days ago, now that we have become aware that the tumor has become resistant to this treatment. As a substitute treatment, I am seeking to enroll in a national clinical trial called ECLIPSE being run in part out of the UCLA Santa MonicaOncology Medical Division. It is an immune-stimulation trial based ona genetically-disabled Listeria vaccine. I am too tired to explain more now,.but I will attempt to keep you informed in another week. — Steve Coles
