Phase III IMpower131 Study Showed Genentech’s TECENTRIQ (Atezolizumab) Plus Chemotherapy (Carboplatin and ABRAXANE) Reduced The Risk of Disease Worsening or Death in the Initial Treatment of People With a Type of Advanced Squamous Lung Cancer https://www.gene.com/media/press-releases/14709/2018-03-19/phase-iii-impower131-study-showed-genent
Hi Everyone! I had a pretty treatment specific question. My Mom's first line of treatment was Carboplatin and Alimta which she handled VERY well and had a great response to as a chemotherapy drug. As her cancer has recently returned, she's just started her second line treatment which is Carboplatin/Abraxane/Avastin. She only received the Carboplatin and Abraxane during her treatment yesterday as they found some blood in her urine so they didn't want to deliver the Avastin without first culturing that to see what was going on. Does anyone have an experience with this course of treatment (specifically this combination of drugs in 1st and 2nd line treatments)? I'm just curious what she can expect from the Carboplatin/Abraxane combo versus what she experienced with the Carboplatin and Alimta. I know each case and each person is different in terms of how they respond to chemo and what their side effects are (even on the same drug course) and I'm familiar with the side effects that are listed in general from each of these drugs just looking to see if someone here had different experiences with both forms of treatment. I know its pretty specific so I'm not sure that this makes sense, but trying to get a gauge for her from others who have experienced them. Thanks in advance, Maigan
