I found the same study last week and thought...."yeah, I'll take two of those, thanks."  I've printed it out and am bringing it to the onc after Thanksgiving, when I start my new cocktail.  That's some stunningly great news; I think "encouraging" would be an understatement.  Brief resesarch showed no super huge side effects, so I say, load me up.

I am just heartened that someone is doing a study into this cancer!  Thank you for sharing the information.
