    Hi.  I am a new user who has a friend who found this site extremely helpful and informative.  It has been recommended to my husband that he participate in a clinical trial with the drug mek kinase.  Does anyone have any experience with this?  We are in Canada.  

    Thank you so much!

      Hello,

      MEK kinase inhibitors are a group of drugs. Do you know which one was suggested?

      Some inhibitors which are currently investigated in clinical trials:

      GSK1120212

      AZD6244

      TAK-733

      RO4987655

       

      I just post these drug names here so that maybe someone who has experience with it will recognize a name…

        Hi – we found out today that our clinical trial (if my husband was approved to participate) is GSK 1120212 in combination with BKM 120. Do you have any information about that? Anything would help and thank you ! donswife.
