Just wanted to raise a point and see if anyone has heard if NWBO has accounted for the appearance of tumor growth in scans, which could be attributed to progression (bad), inflammation (neutral) or the flooding of immune cells to the site (good).
Not making an issue, perhaps you and mtaotter have misunderstood my intent. I'm long here. Just raising a potential reason for 'delays' in results in case anyone is getting cold feet with the wait.
Seems everyone is expecting we'll see the endpoint of regression within a couple of weeks of treatment. This may not be the case, due to the difficulty in differentiating the tumor mass from immune cells attacking the tumor, when viewed on scans. Depending on immune response, the tumor may appear to be larger when in fact it has regressed. It will take time for the amassed immune cells to subside.
I'm asking if this has been taken into account and discussed anywhere. Or if regression is being measured through means additional to scans.
