Hey, I just started this clinical trial I was dx with mets to the lungs about a year ago. Primary was Tonsil 

I  was wondering if anyone here knows anyone who has taken this drug in previous clinical trials the drug / chemo is called Rigosertib.

Rigosertib works by blocking cell division in cancer cells and causing them to die

it is being used for metastasis of

Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Anal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Please feel free to PM me info.

Also this trial may be open to you

May God hold you in the palm of his hand during your treatments!

Hi Marynb, Thanks for your kind words.

The trial I am in is in Columbus, OH at The James Cancer Center. However i think it is available  at about 4-5 other locations.

 i'm in day 4 of the trial so far so good, I wish I knew when I might start expereiencing soem of the side effects. I imagine like most it will take 7 to 10 days for the negative side effects to "kick-in". from what I read is most of the side effects are urilogical in nature, so I have been drinking lots of water.

 

I really hope this drug not only works for me but for others where all other options are exhausted.

This is some of the most informative info I have found on this site.  If this works it sounds like it might be a "miracle" drug for many people.

Dx in April 2013 and did clinical trial for anal cancer at NIH with Dr D. Citrin. Best care ever. They are a good resourse for this sort of info.
