more good news on Iressa (gefitinib) - from this week's JAMA


Recommended Posts

Hi Teresa:

Thanks for posting this - as it happens, Dr. Barth at Hoag has recommended a combination of of gefitinib in conjunction with cisplatin and docetaxel.

Deb has been doing this since mid September - I am trying to find supporting citations & research to justify this with our insurance folks but have had no success to date - the closest I have found so far is some work by Frances A. Shepherd, MD at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto who spoke at The 3rd Princess Margaret Hospital Conference on New Developments in Cancer Management in September, 2003...

Thanks again,
