Going to be tested for Dr. Faustman's BCG Phase 2 Trial

  • I have an appointment later this month to be tested to see if I qualify for Dr. Faustman's BCG Trial.  So....we are headed to Boston in a few weeks!  I'm so excited.  They are looking for people who have had Type 1 for a long time and who still produce a small amount of insulin. If they find that I still produce some insulin, then they will call my doc for other medical info. They are looking for people with no complications (I have none) and who have an A1C average between 6.5 and 8.5.  So, I fall into all those categories, except I don't know about the insulin production.

    So....wish me luck!  If I get in, the trial will last for five years and I will have to go to Boston about four times a year for testing.  I could get the BCG, or I could get the placebo.  Either way, I don't care, I'm just excited about the chance to take part! I know that there is still a long way to go before we can all get our cure.  I hope it won't be too late for me! 

    I'll keep you all updated!
