Seems like there is new growth now or maybe its a reoccurance of the old spots (right and left lower lobes). So he is out of the trial now.

Drs gave us 2 alternative trials - Phase 1 - or do we go with the tried and true Alimta or Tarceva or ?

Bristol Myers Squibb - IXABEPILONE

Merck - L-001154704

What to do, what to do? Anyone have any thoughts?

Oh how I wish I had been at that appointment.

Thanks in advance.

I'm so sorry for this set back. There are options and that's a good thing. I can't give advice on the trials since I've not experienced it, but I wanted to send a hug and some prayers for total success this next go round. Please keep us update!

P.S. Maybe a hand-held tape recorder for those appointments you can't get to so that you and your family can review it together after the appointment?

I can not offer advice about which trial or treatment to chose. That sounds like a personal decision you have to make. As the moderator for new trials forum I will say THANK YOU For being a Pioneer and taking part in a trial. That in itself is a very tough decision to make under the circumstances. Some people consider Trials as being Guieau Pigs. I consider them Pioneers oin research and again THANK YOU. Prayers and Big Warm Dryer Blankets for comfort.
