If you go to the main page for publications from ASCO (American Society of Clinical Oncologists):http://jco.ascopubs.org

on the left go to "Early Release Articles"

and for Aug 2o,4th item down is:"Oxaliplatin As Part of Adjuvant Theraphy for Colon Cancer:More Complicated Than Once Thought"

and

an abstract on fish oil emulsion and CRC chemo:www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22874769

Thanks Steve! Being stage II I am now wondering if I am suffering long term side effects of Oxi for naught?

Thank you SOOOO much for posting this!!! I feel like I came across this for a reason. I feel like hugging you!!!! I have been struggling with the thought of this poisonous oxi for weeks now as my hubbie needs to make a decision about chemo. I cannot wait to show him this, I cannot wait to see if the oncologist will change his mind about Folfox for a stage 2, which my hubbie is.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.....I am serious. You made my night, my week, my month, probably a difference in our whole life. I would have never seen this on the internet probably.
