    Wife of Carl

      My husband is on a GSK MEK trial in Nashville.  He has been on the trial since May, 2010.  He is doing well so far.  The first scans showed that the tumors were shrinking.  He is on the same doseage as your husband.  His side effects are the rash, diarrhea and some slight fatigue.  Otherwise, he is up and around and doing well so far.  His doctor has said that he has seen two complete responders to this trial.  We are hoping that my husband is #3.
