Infusion Treatment #1

After being in the Wyeth clinical trial of Bapineuzumab, today was my first day in the final part of the trial. I'm getting the real vaccine and even checked to make sure the IV bag had
Bapineuzumab written on it. It made for a long day-six and a half hours. But I had my laptop and Larry had his and we had a TV in the treatment room so it wasn't so bad. I always have
brain scans halfway between the infusions to make sure my brain is not swelling which used
to be a problem with Bapineuzumab but is not anymore after decreasing the amount of the
I wish everybody would get into a clinical trial. Without people enrolling in the trials, research and finding a cure slows down.
