CNTO 328

Yesterday I signed the consent forms to be enrolled in a trial of a monoclonal antibody to IL-6, CNTO 328, made by Centocor. Since IL-6 is a growth factor for MM, the idea behind the antibody is that the MM cells will eventually die off. I’ll have to read up some more on it. I have to get ready to go for Zometa, and will write more when I get back.
