icbn Posted August 29, 2006 Share Posted August 29, 2006 Does anyone have info on Gemzar as the a SINGLE agent for 2nd line treatment? The VA offered this based on nothing else will work either. They turned down Tarceva (the company is getting back with me this week though) AVASTIN ad Gemzar combo, and turned down Cyberknife removal of the subcarinal lymph nodes tumors. BTW the cancer I have is the type that is the same caused by heavy herbicidal poisoning. The VA has already accepted and decided that the connection to the tons of Agent Orange dumped on me and that the Marines in my unit have 156% more lung cancer smokers and non-smokers is actual and has granted service connection for the lung cancer. So the government that caused it and the government that denied the cancer connection for 20 years and the government that pays a small monthly compensation for killing me, is also the same government that has agreed to treat it. Is there a conflict of interest here somewhere? The only thing I can depend on is that they are from the government and are here to help me. Seriously though, I am curious what clinical studies or personal experience here has been on Gemzar as a single agent for Stage IIIB 2nd line chemo. Thanks.
