This trial is at John Hopkins;they are recruiting for it now,started about a year and a half ago.

Its the GVAX vaccine,gemzar,5fu,radiation,cyclophosphamide for patients who had surgery.The vaccine was given BEFORE the surgery and after as opposed to just after in the previous trial.Also,i believe they just used flouracil and radiation in the previous trial.

It might be 4 or 5 years before available to all depending on the results.I believe they would have to start a large phase 3 trial with about 300 patients at centers around the country/world.Possible that if results were so overwhelmingly positive they could go right to the FDA but I'm not sure if there is precedent for that.

As always,check with JH for info.
