Avastin Only Schedule


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone on Avastin only could let me know what their schedule was. My doctor was thinking about every 2 weeks, but he was doing some more research on that. Just wondered what the norm seemed to be on here.

I think the doctors are still trying to figure that out. In the carboplatin/taxol +Avastin trial they used around 200/kg (I think) every three/four weeks. In the recent trial in Europe,

Cisplatin/Gemzar +Avastin they lowered that to 100/kg (and after a while to 70/kg). The results were similar. My father was taking 100/kg every three weeks.
