I don't know if this is the proper place to post but how do I get my father into the NIH trail in Maryland. What are the requirements for admission? 

He's 68 year old otherwise healthy, diagnosed with CC in Dec 2011.

He had the Klatskin tumor in bile duct, it was removed shortly thereafter by Dr. Myron Shwartz and it since recurred in liver/lung recently. (5.2 cm dominant mass).

He's currently undergoing experiemental treatment with Dr 
Stephen Schreibman out of Morristown NJ - taking Affinator. The tumors are not shrinking but both the tumor makers & the "fuction" of the tumors is decreasing. 

We are at a loss. Please email me at and thank you for posting your you're story at the CC forum as well as on CaringBridge.

Please keep up the great work fighting the good fight!!
