Well had my appointment yesterday at the Churchill,Oxford, eventually being seen only an hour and a half late! just when you don't need the stress. So things started really well with them not having the results of my last scan or blood test results (and there was me thinking that was the whole point of the appointment). Any way eventually they got the scan results faxed over and blood test results which had gone up again this time to 800, and scan showed definate reoccurance of the oc.
The trail that they are offering me is weekly paclitaxel with OSI-906 drug!? ~Apparently this drug acts by blocking the activity of a receptor protein called the Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF) receptor which is important for the growth and spread of cancers. This is a second phase trial and is obviously not without risk, but looking at some of the possible side effects it looks quite scary, but I guess most drugs have a load of side effects that don't affect everyone, but I am just finding it hard to get my head around all the information.
Has anyone else heard of this particular trial?
