My Interview at OSU for the Ibrutinib Trial
This is the article that discusses my clinical trial. My photo with Dr. Byrd is on the cover on the magazine and I was interviewed for the text. The writer, Kendall Powell made everything so easy.
I pasted the full article below, but the whole online journal is worth reading. I got no end of teasing from my oncology colleagues about the picture of Dr. Byrd and me on the cover. Dr. Kipps was especially sweet in his comments.
The same issue of Frontiers contains this worthwhile article on Dr. Byrd's research on page 9 of the PDF version on the journal. It can be a bit slow to load, but it's worth the wait.
Lots of other interesting reading for those interested in how the darkness in being push back in CLL in particular and cancer in general. I particularly enjoyed in the article on page 8 on inflammation and its role in the the rare lymphoma, LGL.
Later this month, I will be back in Columbus for more CT scans and lab tests, but I will also have the special opportunity to visit the research lab. I am anticipating learning much about cutting edge technology in interrogating cancer calls and the body's responses.
As much as I love the folks at the James, it has been nice to have my 84 days away.
Here is the article on CLL and my trial:
