If so then one of us attending ASCO might have a chance to watch the presentation.

Re: My first post

Searched Tivantinib and Papadopoulos. Must be this study:

Drug-drug Interaction Study of Tivantinib (ARQ 197) With Omeprazole, S-warfarin, Caffein, Midazolam, and Digoxin in Cancer Subjects

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01517399

Re: My first post

Hi eli...yes this is the study. Per the protocol we would have added gemcitabine a few weeks ago, but it was decided not  to due to the cancer markers going from 122,565 to 12,000 with only a couple weeks of tx with Tivantinib. Thanks eli, Dana
