I've been trying to find older posts that included the term "gene deletions" and how it works with Temodar. Our son's doc has never mentioned that to us (son age 34, dx 4-13-11 AA3, inoperable) but I don't know enough about it to even ask the question. Does the test to determine this deletion have to be done at time of biopsy? Do I understand it right that if the patient has this certain gene deletion, that it means better response to Temodar? Would appreciate any info anyone can pass along.
