    Hello-My brother just received good news- 10-12%  reduction in the two remaining tumors, based on todays results of PET CT Scan!!  Currently his liver enzymes are elevated to level 1 – not sure what that means.  Also continuous high fevers and chills.  But his trial dr. said to keep going on current doesages.   Anyone else with that side effect-and please check in with any updates on this trial.  We are looking forward to throwing NED party hopefully soon!   Thanks again for all your help-and lets hope this good luck continues.

      That is good news. How long has he been on this now?

      Concerning the liver enzyme at level 1, there are about 10 or so different liver function tests. Are you possibly talking about Total bilirubin (TBIL)? Or Direct bilirubin (Conjugated Bilirubin)?
