Thank you so much for all of this information.

My mom has Stage IV pancreatic adenoCA and we are on our 2nd line of chemo. I had heard about this trial, but so far my mother has been resistant to considering trials or traveling.

Would you mind if I asked more details about how your husband was doing at the time when you were seen at Hopkins about this trial? How 'fast' was his disease progressing? I have realized that my mother will likely not be eligible for most clinical trials because her blood counts have suffered a lot with chemo, and she is becoming more tired. I would hate to push her to consider a trial, to travel all the way to Hopkins to meet with them, and then have them say the same thing they did to your husband.

I wish you and your husband many good wishes with his chemo and his life. Take care.
