Patient Video - What was the clinical trial enrollment process like for you?
Mr. Satterfield recalls the informed consent form which he signed. He found it a fairly smooth process, although there was a requirement to send some tissue samples to the clinical trial organizers. There was a delay of about 3 weeks before the trial could begin. Based on his tissue samples and his patient history, he was eligible to join the clinical trial. He followed the trial steps with regular treatments and monitoring. By May 2017, the doctor told him there were no more signs of the cancer in his body.
