Coley's Toxins IV #8 - Another sub-optimal fever at 0.002mL

SAM 4100After some deliberation, we decided not to increase the dose level. Instead, we wanted to see if a higher fever could be obtained by increasing external heat instead. After all, we felt that the previous fever (#7) was quite a good one, despite the sub-optimal temperature. It's duration was long and she was quite fatigued after that fever.

Well, as it turns out, increasing the external heat did not lead to a higher fever. Instead, she again developed a fever mainly between 100-101F. This was noticeably lower and of shorter duration than the previous one. She also tolerated it easier and was less fatigued. She did experience some chills but very light ones and very short. She had bone aches from the hip down to the legs.

Our conclusion: increasing external heat did not seem to substantially affect her ability to achieve higher fever. It's clear that we need to escalate dosage.

Cancerwife: Below are my bacterial friends, Cauly and Bacty, both Caulobacters. They are happily observing me as I get fevers caused by my newfound bacterial friends, Streptococcus pyogenes and Serratia marcescens.
