Side effects have not been bad… kind of the usual I guess. Metalic taste in mouth, a little nausea, hair loss, about 50% loss of energy/stamina, and a little rashing. It is a 21 day cycle – chemo drug given for one hour on first day, then YM155 slowly over 7 days – use a small pump and meds in a fanny pack like thing. It's do-able, not at all uncomfortable. All meds given through a port that was surgically implanted before we started.
I think this trial is available in various locations.
