Richard Scolyer: Amazingly, my latest MRI brain scan shows no recurrence 10 months since my glioblastoma

Richard Scolyer, Co-medical director at the Melanoma Institute Australia, and Cojoint professor at the University of Sydney, shared a post on X/Twitter:

“Fantastic news!

Amazingly, my latest MRI brain scan shows no recurrence 10 months since my glioblastoma presented with a seizure in Poland. Median time to recurrence is 6 months.

I’m extremely hopeful that the novel neoadjuvant combination immunotherapy I’ve had and the scientific changes we demonstrated in my tumor post versus pre immunotherapy are being translated into clinical benefit! I’d be thrilled and very proud if this novel approach makes a difference for me and future brain cancer patients.

Thanks to Professor Georgina Long for devising and facilitating this superb approach and other members of the multidisciplinary team including the Melanoma Australia team and other specialists like Dr. Brindha, Helen Wheeler, Michael Back, and many others. Well done also to our Melanoma Australia translation research team including Helen Rizos! Special thanks for the ongoing support of my wife Katie, 3 kids Em, Matt, and Luce, brother Mark, and many other family and friends!”
