Fighting PC with Erbitux+Irenotecan? Advice.

Joined: Jul 2005

Hi there - I am writing on behalf of my aunt, who was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in Sept. 04. She was taking the GTX chemo protocol (Gemzar/Taxotere/Xeloda) for the past 9 months with good results; however, she may have developed a resistance.
She is looking into a combination therapy using Erbitux (CPT-11, I think) and Irenotecan together. This is a combination used for colon cancer in the past, I think. Does anyone have experience with this combination therapy for Pancreatic cancer? Please let me know, we're looking for any help or advice or stories out there. Thanks.
