A few excerpts of the article that are exciting to me:
"The biggest roadblock we ran into was the short supply of BCG in the
U.S., because it stopped being produced after the Big Pharma factory
making it was shut down. BCG isn't a high-tech product, so when you go
to make more, it's restricted on where it can be manufactured -- kind of
like a flu vaccine, you just can't make it at any lab. Think of it like
this: If you have a plant making french fries, you can't suddenly have
them start making hamburgers even though they're both food products
often served together. We had to get a contract to do this. We didn't
want to be in the manufacturing business, but we had to in order to
continue this research."
"We have gotten approval for Phase II
and we're all OK on the manufacturing front, so it will start shortly.
Probably in the coming months. In our last research update from the
Fall, we wrote that we're planning for 120 people. We are always looking
for more patients to be a part of this, so interested persons can email
us at email@example.com. "
