My partner has a new nickname, Mickey Mouse. He likes this nickname as he watched Mickey Mouse cartoon as a kid and that he has a chance to be a lab rat/guinea pig whatever you want to call for this clinical trial we try to get him in.
Yesterday we thought he wouldn't be able to join due to a long list of supplements that he has or has taken which could complicate thing with the trial. This morning, we were informed of a 'good' news that he has been given a green light to participate in the trial but not allow to take any supplement from now on.
Now, let's think if it's a good news. It's sort of a good news as he gets to try a new drug that seems to be promising in the lab. However, it's the first time they test this drug in human and that's something I'm a bit uncertain about. At least, to our knowledge, there are two persons in this program already and they are still alive... and well, I hope. Fingers crossed!
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
