My husband was on Gemox for 4 months. It brought the cancer markers down dramatically and the tumor (Klaskin's) was essentially unchanged.  He is now on Folfiri (FU-4, Leuvocorin and Tarceva).   Got very severe skin lesion/acne type on his face so they have stopped the tarceva.  His skin cleared up quickly with Clindamycin oitment.

We expect to resume Tarceva soon.

Would appreciate any positive stories on Tarceva effectiveness and I will share our experience as well.  He is being treated at MD Anderson and they are THE BEST.  Determined to beat this terrible cancer.
