Virulizen is an experimental immunotherapy drug and can only be gotten in a study. I am researching another study being done a U of M in Ann Arbor that involves Erbitux, Irinotecan and Docetaxel. We need to make decision by Monday when he is due to start Chemo. He wants to try but isn't willing to do any extreme drugs that will make his time miserable. I guess I have to live with that decision. Our brother-in-law died from bladder cancer with mets to liver 1 1/2 years ago after a 1 1/2 years battle. Some of the drugs he tood were horrible and put him in a catatonic state for days and he will not go through that. He has done a turnaround on seeking any treatment from the day he was first told so I am happy with that. Thanks for your reply.
