Sorry to here that, and I know that hope springs eternal, but a review by the American Cancer Society found no evidence that the Issels treatment had any significant effect on cancer as far as remission or cure. That said, I don't think the treatment is dangerous per se. I would suggest you contact the NIH or major university teaching hospitals to see if you qualify for being entered into a drug research study.
