Re: MDA Phase 1 trial Cons.

This is important enough that I feel the need to come back on and toss out an option. I have started a phase III trial for Xilonix that you may want to consider. I'll post a thread soon with a summary of the research that has been done on it so far.

Re: The time has come for some guidelines...

What conservative groups in the US provide the most funding for cancer research? Even in forums, one has to be mindful of not biting the hand that is paying for the search for a cure. Follow the money. I don't know why that thread was locked when others that definitely were offensive were not, but ...

Re: New guy on the block starting chemo tomorrow

Hi Brian, and welcome -- and sorry you had to be here. If you search on FOLFOX tips, colostomy, and the like, you will find tons. I am wishing for you that you go through the chemo (ugh) and then never have to worry about CRC again! This is a great place for info when you run into issues.
