Hello to all,

Anyone hear of this combination for relapsed SCLC? We saw the Onc today and Bill has a new onset of mets to 2 lymph nodes in his neck. So the new treatment plan is to try Carboplatin and Topotecan for once a week for three weeks with two weeks off and repeat once a week for three more weeks. He feels that the Carboplatin worked well with the first treatment of his 3 chest tumors. The only thing Bill is not looking forward to is that he will feel crappy again. Right now, he feels good. He's been off for three weeks and feels normal. I guess at least his new normal. We have plans till the 23rd of this month so the Dr agreed not to start him until then. Maybe this will do the trick to ward off what's going on for now. Wish us luck.

Hi Laurie,

I haven't heard of that combo, but I've read some clinical trials that are combining Topotecan with other agents (just can't remember if I read about carbo).

I'm praying for you both that this combo does the trick.
