Re: Vaccine

'lizbeth: All I know is that the Sibley Memorial Walter Reed vaccine trial is no longer accepting HLA negative patients because they concluded that the vaccine did not benefit them. I had to get blood drawn and tested and I came out positive so I was allowed to enter the trial. When I read the documents on the trial, it seemed that initially those that were HLA negative were randomized to wither A37 vaccine without GM-CSF and or GM-CSF alone. But now, they are only accepting HLA + patients and those either receive the GP2 + GM-CSF or GM-CSF alone.
Perhaps there is another A37 vaccine trial or I missed something in the documents they gave me.
