Re: KRAS G12V Mutation Question

Thank you, so much, for all your time and helpful posts, NHMike! I didn't realize that tumor mutation testing isn't protocol - wow. Pretty critical in treatment plans, I'd say. Glad to hear you had a successful surgery. How is your recovery? Was it laporoscopic? Though my surgery is scheduled, they ...

Re: KRAS G12V Mutation Question

Thank you, NHMike! Indeed it's important to know our specific tumor DNA to understand value or responsiveness of targeted therapies.

Re: KRAS G12V Mutation Question

Fascinating post. We can still make use if drugs that target VEGF and there’s always 5FU and oxiliplatin. _____________________________________ Thank you so much for your reply, NHMike! Could you help me know where/how you learned about 5FU/Oxiliplatin is effective? I have a very large, contained l...

I've learned I have the KRAS G12V mutation and just wanted to hear from members who have the same mutation and their experience in responsiveness to FOLFOX or FOLFIRI (incl 5FU). The resear...
