My brother has been diagnosed with Anaplastic Astrocytoma recurrent grade III brain tumor. It is inoperatable and for the last 4 years he has tried radiation and chemo (cbt11 with Avastin) and Temador. He most recently had to be taken off the Temador due to a drop in his blood platelets. His doctor now wants him to join a clinical trial of Tarceva and Sirolimus. Is anyone aware of the effectiveness of this treatment and the side effects?
My brother is having a difficult time dealing with the thought of starting another round of Chemo and would like to try an alternative method. I read on this discussion board about Dr. S. Burzynski. I would love to hear from anyone who is aware of his clinic and if you (or someone you know) has been treated at his clinic in Houston, TX.
