One of those exclusions is having a history of gestational diabetes. Oops. That's me . . . not once, but twice and both times, insulin dependent. I sent an email to the clinical trials coordinator letting him know of this detail so that we don't waste time/energy/resources on screening me only to find I'd be excluded based on this.
He talked to my medical oncologist (who is also the lead investigator for this study) and they had to send the information for clarification to the company who is the study sponsor. (The company is the one who makes the experimental drug.) We are now awaiting their response.
The study is not only for breast cancer patients, but for those with advanced solid malignancies, regardless of location. It's possible that this exclusion is for a different type of cancer, but we will have to wait and see.
Please pray that we receive a quick answer from the study sponsor. If I am excluded from the study then that means that I will start a different treatment as soon as possible.
