Reply to "New Developments in Treatment: Erbitux® (cetuximab)"

Hello Sue

These two studies show a benefit: This later clinical trial evaluated the effectiveness of Erbitux in combination with chemotherapy including Taxol® (paclitaxel) and Paraplatin as initial therapy in patients with head and neck cancers. Erbitux did not increase notable side effects; however, approximately half of patients treated with Erbitux experienced severe skin rash. The rash appears to relate to the efficacy of the drug!Let's us pray that you get the benefits without becoming a pimply teenager!Yikes

It is not easy but stay relaxed, stay positive and just do your best. If you feel low, you can talk to us, we are here and will listen. If necessary, i will post you a few jokes Smiler

Take care.

Best wishes
