New data on Iressa: 30% survival


Recommended Posts

Just a thought,

I wonder if the survival rate has anything to do with the fact that those of us on Iressa are not suffering the life threatening side effects of chemo. Our immune systems are not compromised, we are not prone to infection, our blood counts stay up, we have our appetite, if we get a cold it more than likely won't turn into pneumonia. An ER nurse once told me, (during my frequent trips to the ER while on chemo) that 80% of cancer deaths are not from the cancer, but from complications from infections.

Any comments?
