      I started the trial in February 2010. After a 6 week ct scan the tumors grew and spread, they pulled me off and put me immediately in Bio-Chemo which have shrank the tumors by 70 to 80 % and now on maintenance after 6 rounds of bio.

      It sounds like it is working for you so far. I wish you luck.

      I have heard of success with the treatment… it just wasn't me.

        I did not ask as I have a lot of faith in Dr. Weber @ Moffit. I did not flinch when that was his reccomendation. I told him let's go there is no time to waste.

        I have also heard that Bio-Chemo was brutal, but if it works… works well and lasts longer compared to other choices.

        I hope your scans turn out good for you.
