My husband has stage 4 melanoma and is about to start treatment with Interferon in about 10 days. Our oncologist suggested we might want to consider Ipilimumab treatment as it typically is easier on the patient, however, it does come with a cost of about $150,000. This drug is not covered in Saskatchewan, Canada, for treating this cancer. Has anyone gone through treatment with Ipilimumab or Nevolumab or is anyone aware of a clinical trial where this particular drug is been researched. I know there are clinical trials in Alberta and in Toronto but I'm assuming that option wasnt given to us because we dont live in the province where the trial is taking place. Thanks everyone.
