Can I get tested for MRTCs ahead of the trial?

Post by Frank » 11 years ago

Hi,

I'm thinking about taking part in an upcoming phase-III tovaxin trial.
Do you think it is realistic to assume that the phase-III could start mid 2009?
Can I expect that Opexa will establish studiy sites in germany?

To make sure I basicly meet the inclusion criteria of MRTCs it would be great if I could get tested in the near future.
I know that this test would not be relevant for the inclusion criteria and it test would have to be repeated anyway, but it would give me a better feeling to know at least in generaly I have MRTCs.
I heard about people who wanted to enter the Tovaxin trial but failed because no MRTCs could be found.

If I knew that I do not have or dont have enogh or the wrong MRTCs I would not waste time waiting for the trial to start but could try to find an other good treatment option for me.

Thanks

Hi Frank,

Believe it or not, it is very easy to talk to the people at Opexa. Their medical coordinator for the trial is Dr. Garces. I got the phone number from http://opexatherapeutics.com in the Contact tab. I would ask Dr. Garces where to go to get that test run if you really want to get it done before hand. I would not think that a presence of MRTC's test is done at just any lab and they may tell you they have to do it, but I would start wtih Dr. Garces.

Hi Lew,

I already wrote an email to the adress shown in the opexas contact tab (http://www.pharmafrontiers.net/contact.php) but got no reply.
On the contact form there is just the general adress an contact information for Opexa - no individuals.
Have I been looking at the wrong place?

I just looked at pharmafrontiers webpage. After Opexa bought them, it looks like it is a medical communications company based in Asia! Click on the link in my first post. That has Opexa's current information.

When I click on your opexa link I get to their main page.
Then I click on the contact field (right top of the page) the takes me to the page I posted (http://www.pharmafrontiers.net/contact.php) which does belog to Opexa but just dispays the general contact information.

http://www.pharmafrontiers.net/ shows the same page as http://www.opexatherapeutics.com/
