At a recent meeting of my OVCA support group we had a discussion about bevacizumab (Avastin), a drug that has been used for colon cancer for a while, and is being tested on ovarian cancer patients. One of our members has been taking it for a while now, and is having good results. She has had previous therapies, and entered into a trial for this drug.
Has anyone else had experince with Avastin? There was a posting on the OVCA board by Steffie last year telling a bit about it. I've heard that it may be approved for OVCA treatment before too long because of the good results that have been seen in women who have had mulitple lines of chemo.
