In short, my Christmas wish was granted. SGN-35 figuratively appeared under the tree this year. I am relieved, pumped, hopeful, grateful and eager to get started. The study that Dr. Moskowitz wrote specific to my case flew through the institutional and FDA approval process and all agreed that my case warrants this still experimental drug to be released to me on a compassion basis.
I will have my first infusion of SGN-35 this coming Thursday, Dec. 30. I'll have two weeks recovery, then another infusion, then we check a scan. There is potential that it could put me into remission as quickly as after two cycles. Then, we move right into transplant.
More details to come. Right now I'm just riding a high – a high of holiday cheer, anticipation, and most predominately 100mg of Prednisone steroids.
Best. Christmas. Ever.
