    I'm stage 4 and my melanoma oncologist is recommending a clinical trial using sutent and avastin together. It blocks the formation of new blood vessels that feed the cancer. Does anyone have any experience with these drugs, eitther first or second hand?

      I don't have any experience with them and they sound new – Does anyone have any advice for Earl?  He is Stage IV and I think he is getting discouraged and confused about in the treatments.
