Topic: Doxil

I saw an article on the CancerConsultants web site that talked about a form of Adriamycin (doxorubicin) called Doxil. 

   Has anyone had experience with this drug or heard anything about it?

     Thanks

God give strength to everyone affected by this terrible disease.

Re: Doxil

My oncologist mentioned this on our last visit.  It seems like the original version of this medication was hard on the heart, but the Doxil has a layer of fat wrapped around it and it is suppose to be much better tolerated.  I'm curious as to whether others has had any experiences with it as well.

Re: Doxil

I was also wondering if anyone's had any experience with patupilone?
