I need some advice as to how much to share/not to share with our NO regarding my son's vaccine treatment. We just started vaccine with Van Gool ( three weeks after the end of chemoradiation)who thinks my son should definitely not do any chemo while on immunotherapy (except for, if we have PD1 , maybe Keytruda). He has low MGMT expression, which justifies the use of TMD, but his blood counts dropped really low the last few weeks of chemo and he generally tolerated it very poorly. Our NO previously was talking about either doing avastin or/and maintenance or CCNU based on the post radiation MRI ( which we will have for the first time since surgery in October).
While I tend to go with Van Gool's idea, I am not sure how much I should tell our NO. I am afraid if we put it on record that my son is doing DC vaccine, that would preclude him from further clinical trials. Conversely , if we don't follow the standard procedure, maybe we could be excluded from trials as well. Our NO is a good guy ( not a brilliant professional, though), but I am not sure how much I should/should not share with him.
