    I finally made it to MD Anderson this week for consultation with Dr. Falchook. My creatine level was elevated and kept me out of the pi3k trial I wanted. He  told me the next best option was Avastin & Revlimed. It looks like I start on April 14th for first infusion then go back every two weeks alternating with revlimed.

    Hopefully someone can help.

    Thanks for all your help,

      Hi Rocky

      not heard of this Combo but i know Avastin is an Inhibitor and has been trialed in Melanoma for some time usuualy in Combo with other things. The other Revlimid is i think similar to Thalidomide. 

      As a back up have they mentioned the other Trial some posters have mentioned recently E7080. The other you could look at is the Delcath System which isolates the liver.

      best wishes

        Thanks James,

        The Decath system wouldn't work as there are tumors all over my body and have been told that is not a good option for me. They did not recommend anything but the following as my creatinine level canceled me out of many other trials. I also had Dr. Falchook to call Dr. Weber @ Moffit and made sure they both agreed on the treatment and they both agreed.

        Also I misspelled the Revlimed… it should be Revlimid.
