Hi Marion, we are being trated in San Antonio, TX with Tivantinib...she has a lot going on in the bile ducts and her liver tumors are ennumerable...at the start her cancer marker was 122,565 and two weeks ago 12,000 and some change...we had to have one blood transfusion for red blood cells and white blood cell shots and we are now on a reduced dose ans we are doing okay
Dana...hello and please don't run away. How is your Mom handling the clinical trial and which one is it? Where is she being treated? Hugs to you, Marion
Welcome to the site. Sorry that you had to find us all but I'm glad that you have joined us as you've come to the right place for support and help. And I know that you will get a ton of both from everyone here.
Glad to hear that your mum is doing okay right now on the trial and I so hope that it goes very well for her. My fingers are crossed and please keep coming back here and let us know how things go for your mum. We are all here for you.
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
Searched Tivantinib and Papadopoulos. Must be this study:
