HER2 positive research trial TPIV100
Hello, I was diagnosed with stage2 her2+. Did 6 treatments of herceptin and perjeta, mastectomy, doing radiation and 14 treatments of kadcyla since I had partial response to initial chemo. I am a candidate to enter phase2 of research study for vaccine to prevent recurrence. If I don’t enter the trial, I wouldn’t be eligible for the vaccine if/when it comes out as I have to take it during kadcyla treatment. Wanted to get others thoughts on this. Would you enter research trial? The downside I saw is phase 1 had 20 subjects from my understanding and they were complete about a year ago. Looking for thoughts, questions to ask and any tips. My oncologist thinks it would be a benefit for me. I trust my team of doctors but still need reassurance the recommendation isn’t because of any interest for the clinic that would supersede my interest.
