So we would like to ask what will be the best option for our disease in today moment?
Could you help us, our doctors thinking too what will be best option now, maybe from your experience, also from clinical trials you would give us some advice.
Could you place our information on your FORUM maybe someone else have experience the same, maybe Mr. Constantine will also firn some time to look at our case?
