Anyone hear of a new drug???? for LC


Recommended Posts

When we went to get results of John's CT scan Tuesday our onc. told us there was a new drug that was through trials and would probably be available in January. He said that it is what my husband will be taking if the Iressa stops working but he would not tell me the name of it.

My mother's oncologist has been very excited by the new drugs in the pipeline. He also said there were several being considered for approval in January. Unfortunately the only one that I can remember is Avastin? I believe it is similar to Herceptin for breast cancer. I will ask him to write down the names the next time I see him.
