Hi I'm new to this community and have already found reading the posts helpful. I was diagnosed Nov 2015 with stage 4 NSCLC with mets to lymph nodes and pleura. I had radiation last Dec, did a targeted therapy for 4 months and am currently getting carbo/gem for 4 rounds. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with pemetrexed maintenance therapy? How are the side effects?

Thank you for any info JK

Welcome to our forum.

There is good information on Pemetrexed and the side effects, if you are able to copy and paste this link from the MacMillan Cancer Support website:

Cancer Research UK has some information on their current trials with Pemetrexed you may find useful.

Our website is and there is a free nurse led helpline if you wish to discuss anything on

0800 358 7200.

We wish you all the best
