Maintenance Trial -avastin only

Postby Mattie » Fri Jul 29, 2016 11:15 am

I heard from my onc that there is a trial going on right now to test avastin only as a maint therapy. I had a few things pop up earlier this year and started Xeloda and Avastin in March, all six mets identified are shrinking on the treatment based on my last scan....

My onc said he is waiting for the results of a trial to see if we will eventually be able to drop the xeloda and move to avastin only. Since this has fewer side effects I'm hoping it is a success.

Anyone know anything about this trial, Participating?

Appreciate any thoughts.
