Hi Tracy!
Sorry I am so slow about getting back to you. We had a bad weekend and then chemo this week so I haven't been on for a while.
My mothers doctor told her that there is a clinical trial going on at West Clinic, in Memphis, TN. where she goes to get her chemo. He did not say if it was a new chemotherapy or a new drug, just that the trial was doing great in killing small cell in mice that they were testing on. He also said that they are doing as many clinical studies as MD Anderson. Give them a call and see what they have.
Lots of good thoughts going your way-
Angie
