Just when we thought we would try our luck with a clinical trial - first test of the drug in human, it's not simple as that. There is this new clinical trial of a drug AMG 595. You have to have a certain type of gene/cell which we were told 30% of people who have glioma (or GBM? - not sure) would have this. We got the tumour test - done for my partner and it's positive, blood test - fine, urine test - fine, ECG test - fine BUT he could still be ineligible to go on this trial. Guess why!? My partner takes so many supplements that it could be too complicated or too much of a risk to get him on the trial. Now we are waiting for the verdict....
