Wayne’s Journey

Wayne has lived a rich life that includes his wife, two daughters and three grandkids. He describes himself as someone who “just likes people.” Starting life on a farm, he went on to complete three degrees and teach chemistry in high school, ultimately becoming a principal. Along the way, he owned a grocery store and even carried mail after retirement.

Hearing the news

When he was about 78, Wayne started noticing symptoms including blood in his urine, and went to his local doctor, thinking it was something minor. When he was first told, “you might have a tumor in your bladder,” he became very concerned. Over the next year, he underwent two transurethral resections of bladder tumor (TURBT) procedures, which is usually the first treatment option for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer, and he received injections of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) into his bladder. But the BCG alone wasn’t working.

Participating in ImmunityBio’s QUILT 3.032 study

Wayne felt lucky to have a friend tell him about Dr. Sam Chang, a urologist at Vanderbilt University recruiting patients for the QUILT 3.032 study of Anktiva (N-803 and nogapendekin alfa inbakicept-pmln) and BCG in patients like himself who were not cured by BCG alone. From the start of study treatment onward, he says he just got “better and better and better.” He still goes in for check-ups, but according to his physicians, everything looks good.
