This new drug for metastatic CRC was approved by the FDA yesterday. My question is can anyone tell me in plain English what this drug is and how it works.
Does it need to be used in combo with existing CRC drugs?
I want to ask the onc about it for George but would like some information before I go in there so I know what I am talking about in case he decides to talk medical talk (which he usually doesn't).
George is really beaten down by the Camptosar (CPT-11) so perhaps this is an option he can use to get a break from the bad stuff.
