Playing Semantics

Discovering a drug, like bevacizumab, and developing it by putting it into use, such as Avastin, is considered something "new" by most of the planet, unless you use the mindset that everything that ever existed and will exist came from the Big Bang. In that case, you are right. There will never be any new... EVER.

"In February 2004, the FDA approved the use of bevacizumab based on a Phase III clinical trial sponsored by Genentech that showed benefit in first-line treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer when the drug was added to standard chemotherapy".

"Bevacizumab is one of many angiogenesis inhibitors that have been developed based on a hypothesis of angiogenesis action published in 1971 by Judah Folkman, M.D., Harvard Medical School, Boston, Mass.

My Advice...

based on my experiences. I am sharing what I did. What worked for me may not work for you (it may, but it may not...)

  • Start by getting the best Oncologist that you can. Even if you have to go out of network and pay out of pocket for the advice then have another oncologist who is in your network follow that protocol, I think that will better your chances in the long run.

  • How you treat and what you do at FIRST are VERY important to the outcome of your cancer diagnosis in my opinion. It's better to start off right than to have the wrong things done and then try to undo them. The damage may be already done.
