Some times Chemo drugs can be used in conjunction with other chemo drugs for promising results. A common one is etoposide or VI-16 I think. This drug is also used for testicular cancer. It has shown promise some times in NSCLC also. It is considered a dual usage Chemo. The Oxiplatin is in this class of drugs. This is the link for this particular drug. Click below to be redirected

Oxaliplatin is a platinum-based chemotherapy drug like Carboplatin or Cisplatin.

Platinum and taxene based chemotherapy is standard first line doublet therapy for NSCLC. Recently drugs like Avastin or Tarceva have been added to the mix for first line triplet therapy.

Best of luck to you -- fight like hell!!

Hi Robin,

I've never heard of the oxiplabinevery before but my Mom responded VERY well with the Avastin/Taxotere combo.

My stepdads cousin is still taking this and he's been stable for quite some time now. There are others here on this site that are doing wonderful too.

I think you have so much to be hopeful for with this new combination and I am praying for your success.

Keep us posted,
