My husband was just diagnosed with stage 4 gastric cancer and it has metastasized to his liver. We are now faced with trying to decide whether to go with the standard chemo treatment or take part in a clinical trial where they will replace Epirubicn with Avastin. We have gotten a second and 3rd opinion and both say chemo is the best treatment. The main Dr and the 3rd Dr we went to see says the best choice is the clinical trial with the Avastin but really popular cancer Dr in the community says why take a chance on a drug that has not been proven to be effective when there is treatment that has been proven. I agree with him but I also know the usual is not always the best.
