Has anyone started/tried/heard about this new antibody therapy used to treat some forms of esophageal cancer. It uses a drug used to treat breast cancer called herceptin. I am about to start and would like some feedback.

They are in the processes of testing my original tumor to see if I would be receptive to the drug. I don't know much about it though, and don't know what the results are yet, there's only a 20% chance of the tumor being acceptable for the drug.
