  • 4th Line Of Treatment HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My brother just found out that the 2 rounds of High Dose Chemo didn't work. The first round did help but the 2nd round did nothing. HGC 2200 he was back to sqaure one. So now the dr's want him to do radiation and clinical trail drugs but Neal doesn't want to just because if HDC didn't work then why would that. He would just be a typical guinni pig. So we heard a lot of good results from Sanoviv in Mexico so he will be going there for further treatment.

    Has anyone heard or tried Sanoviv before?

    Kim, I'm so sorry that your brother's treatment isn't working.

    Clinical trials are extremely important: they provide access to promising treatments before they are widely available and help future patients. I have a number of friends with other types of cancer who are participating in clinical trials right now.

      Please don't let your brother discount clinical trials. They are a valuable tool in the fight against cancer. Just because they aren't available to the medical community at large that dosn't mean they don't and won't work.

        I'm very sorry to hear the high dose chemo did not work for your brother. With regard to clinical trials, keep in mind successful treatments being used now for cancers all staretd with clinical trials. I hope your brother reconsiders it for himself as well as those you may face this in the future. Whatever brings him comfort and hope, we are pulling for him.
