  1. As I shared with the group a short time back, after a year of NED (no evidence of disease), I was diagnosed with a local, limited recurrence of Small Cell Lung Cancer (I.e in the same location as original disease with no regional or distant Mets) I received 4 , 3 day cycles of concurrent Chemo (Carboplatin & Etoposide) and Immune Therapy (Tecentriq - day 1 of each cycle only) with three weeks between each cycle. Findings from post treatment PETCT on May 1, found complete regression/response to treatment, no new or old nodules and no remaining areas of suspect FDG uptake. One of the cleanest scans I’ve ever had. Will see Medical and Radiation Oncologists next week to review results, any next steps (preventative) and begin maintenance immunotherapy on Tecentriq. Will continue to keep you posted. - Looking forward to my “scanxiety” free weekend! Happy to provide any further details that may be helpful to anyone.
  2. As I shared with the group a short time back, after a year of NED (no evidence of disease), I was diagnosed with a local, limited recurrence of Small Cell Lung Cancer (Jan 2019) (I.e in the same location as original disease with no regional or distant Mets) I received 4 , 3 day cycles of concurrent Chemo (Carboplatin & Etoposide) and Immune Therapy (Tecentriq - day 1 of each cycle only) with three weeks between each cycle. Findings from post treatment May 1 PETCT found complete regression/response to treatment. Since May 1 I have continued on Tecentriq Immune Therapy (only) every three weeks and on August 1 had my first (Post NED) 3 month surveillance PETCT and am happy to share that there continues to be no evidence of disease, and no areas of concern requiring more frequent monitoring . Next Scans will be in November, (PetScan in addition to Brain MRI) so for now it’s back to Immune Therapy every 3 weeks, and living life. I’m grateful for the support of family, friends and this community among others since my 1st diagnoses back in October 2017. As always happy to share whatever additional information may be helpful to others
  3. Hi, my father had been dx with SCLC in January and underwent the cycles of carboplatin+ etoposide + tecentriq (immunotherapy) with fairly good response. Now his onco team are planning to do radiation (IGRT) along with carbo+ etoposide. They are saying adding tecentriq to the regime will be too toxic. Has anyone undergone/going through chemo+immunotherapy+ radiation simultaneously ? Prompt response would be of great help

  5. 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
  6. Phase III IMPOWER 150 study showed that Tecentriq (atezolizumab) and Avastin (bevacizumab) plus chemotherapy significantly reduced the risk of disease worsening or death in the initial treatment of people with a type of advanced lung cancer. These data are not fully mature and the next OS analysis is expected in the first half of 2018. They will be submitting these results to health authorities globally (FDA and EMA). You can read more about the study here https://www.gene.com/media/press-releases/14692/2017-11-19/phase-iii-impower150-study-showed-genent
  7. Has anyone in the group had experience with the immunotherapy drug Tecentriq? I am stage 3 NSCLC and was switched to Tecentriq after chemotherapy failed to halt tumor growth. After three Tecentriq infusions, I'm told this treatment also is ineffective, and I am back to chemotherapy -- taxol and avastin. Any advice?
