Is there a similar trial that uses Ketruda in place of opdivo?

Re: Ask For Foundation One Test, and Keytruda?

Ask For Foundation One Test, and Keytruda?

For those of you that are on Keytruda (pembrolizumab), and met the mutation burden threshold after taking the Foundation One Test, are you technically on a "clincal trial" while being treated with Keytruda? My mother is currently on Stivarga, which seems to be keeping most of the mets unde...

Re: Keytruda....Working for MSS....Mutation Burden is the Key

Anyone know if the number of mutations increases after going through several different drugs? My mom had one mutation (KRAF?) back in 2015 when a biopsy was done.

Chemo does cause them to drop, which makes the patient more susceptible to infections. If neutrophil is too low, your onc probably give your mom neupogen or neulasta shots. Good luck! Me...

Hi Natalie, Could you put your mother's concise medical history in the signature, so that forum members know at a quick glance what treatment you mother had and could offer relevant advice based on that information?
