I enrolled in this trial in 2009 --- they've drawn several gallons of blood from me, I think. Another poster here - Brunetta - is also in the trial.
i have no idea why you haven't been able to get in the trial....it was really easy for me, and I know they are still enrolling participants. If I had to use a single word to describe Dr. Faustman, it would be 'delightful'.
She is passionate about the trial, and she truly believes she can fix our immune systems. I talked to her for almost an hour when I first went. I will always regret not taking a tape recorder.
I am skeptical, but hopeful at the same time. When I enrolled, I was living just outside of Boston. I've since moved back home to Colorado, and it's a little tougher to get back east. I had an appt. at the lab in Oct, but I had to reschedule for next summer.
Go back to her website and see if you can sign up.
