I was wondering if anyone has been put on a clinical trial that includes an injection? My first trial didnt work, and am already having a re-occurance while I was recieving a low dose taxol every month. I didnt get all the information yet, so not sure what its even called. The nurse said its a sub-cutaneous injection and its different from the chemo, as it supposedly only attacks the cancer cells. Has anyone heard of anything like this?

Hi Shannon,
I have not heard of this but wanted to say I am sorry that the first trial didn't work out for you. I am sure it is frustrating and saddening to know it didnt perform as well as expected. My last treatment was Topotecan and it didn't work either. I have "worrisome" progression of the disease. I start a new treatment next week. Taxol in lower doses but weekly. We will see.
I sincerely hope this new trial works better for you. Please keep us posted. Positive thoughts, energy and renewed strength to get you through this new trial! Michele.

I don't know anything about clinical trials with injections but please know that I am so sorry that your last treatments didn't work but am praying for good outcomes from your new treatments.

Hugs,

Kelly
