My friend Mark is stage IV, between trials and they want to give him just Irinotecan alone to hopefully stabilized the disease until a slot opens up for him. Anyone have any luck with this, especially stage IV's?? Would love to know...

I read your prior post. My husband was on the Irinotecan with Erbitux which shrunk the tumor some and then stopped. Just curious if you asked them about Panitumumab. It was just approved this month.

Yup. The doctor said he'd been to a seminar in Salt Lake recently. Consensus is that is another drug companies version of Erbitux. Unforntuately if Mark takes the Erbitux with the Irinotecan it will disqualify him from the study. Wanted to see if anyone had any luck with it by itself. Thanks.
