Yes, great news. Steve's Prof was telling us this last week! Hope you're doing well and still on crizotinib. It will be 2 years on 23rd September when Steve first started crizotinib! Still keeping things stable. How time flies. It's five and a half years now since his diagnosis. Best wishes to you.
That's great news. 5.5 years is brilliant. I have been on crizotinib since May 2015 and it's keeping things stable too. I will be 4 years since diagnosis on 5th November.
Best wishes to you both too
Hello Jan. Great to hear that Steve is doing well. I'm still going strong on Crizotinib. It's now over 3 years since I've been on this drug and nearly 6 years from when I was first diagnosed. My consultant keeps me up to date with all the new developments but as long as Crizotinib continues to be effective I'll be staying put.
Best wishes to you and Steve. Have a great Christmas and a healthy new year.
Yes, this is great news that Alecitinib can be accessed on the Early Medicine Access Scheme. All the best to everyone to whom it may help.
