Re: Beginning a clinical trial at MDAnderson

Hey Meo!

Great, is that the same one I did at BAMC in San Antonio? I had the GP2 vaccine for at least 2 of the injections, the rest blindly randomized. And there is another AE37 arm, the one SandraGA was in.

Bring Tylenol just in case you get similar symptoms to mine - really came in handy.

So glad you joined. Thank you!
