Awor described the cause of the delay, he said it is the amount of data that has to be processed. You won‘t get a more detailed answer like this, besäuseln they don’t want to reveal more about the scope of the study. Others have speculated or have heard on the grapevine that the scientists have made a significant discovery that they want to explore further. I don’t know if this is true, but it may be another factor contributing to the delay.
I know it is incredibly frustrating to wait that long. I am sure that is true for all of us, including those directly involved with the research. And this study likely won‘t even be the end of our research efforts. We will have to be incredible patient for a longer time.
Believe me, I know how much it sucks. But it is what it is. The best we can do is to support the research in every way possible. Let‘s not forget that it took the researchers almost two years to recruit the necessary numbers of PFS patients. That’s ridiculous. And let‘s not forget that this is an attempt of bleeding edge science on a shoestring budget, because few people donate to the Foudation. For all the complains that reasonate with me, we also need to point out that this community has not covered itself with glory either. It is a miracle that a study like this is in the works at all thanks to a few very dedicated individuals. We all can do our share that things move faster in the future: donate, participate! Otherwise we have no right to complain.
