SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER WITH METASTASIS TO THE LIVER AND LYMPH NODES - DIAGNOSED OCT 2007.
Today 03/27/09 The tumor is the same, but lymph nodes are getting bigger. We just finish second line of quemo (Topotecan). Doctor offered us a Clinical Trial. Good news: this drug is for smcl and my husband is a candidate. Also the Trial is in the same hospital were he received his other quemotheraphy.
This study is being paid for and study drug 776 is being provided by the study sponsor Schering-Plough Research Institute. About 60 people will take part in this study nationally. Up to 24 people will take part in our hospital.
There are risks: unknown side effects. Posible physical damage.
Anybody doing a clinical Trial?
This is very difficult.....
