My dad is finally engaging in his treatment - that is the good news. One thing he has become excited about are the results of clinical trials done at the University of Maryland and the use of Erbitux while undergoing chemo and radiation treatment for Esophageal cancer. http://www.umm.edu/news/releases/erbitux.htm The FDA, England and other nations have approved the use of Erbitux in various cancer treatments. Erbitux is being touted as one of the breakthrough cancer drugs of 2009. Has anyone been involved in any of the clinical trials or received the drug for the treatment of esophogeal cancer at the gastric junction? Any info you might have would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any information.
