Hi Don: Maurice is in a trial with tarceva & avastin/placebo. We don't know for sure if he's getting the avastin but he's experiencing all the side effects of it, joint pain, muscle aches etc so we're reasonably sure he's on it. After 6 weeks the ct showed some minor shrinkage, last week's scan showed stable. Good Luck & God Bless

Hey Don -

I was on the combo for 10 months. I took Tarceva daily, Avastin every 3 weeks and Zometa every 6.

Eventually the Avastin was reduced in dose and then stopped all together.

I HAVE HAD GREAT RESULTS WITH THIS COMBO!! There was at least one other patient with LC in my clinic that also had great success- last I heard he had been on the treatment plan for 11 months.

I will keep my fingers crossed that this combo will be the magic bullet.
