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

My father was diagnosed with throat cancer recently (2 cm tumor on a larynx, difficult to reach, so non-operable). Myself I am based in London, but my father is getting treated in Latvia. His doctors prescribed him a combination of Erbitux/Cetuximab and a radio. We asked for a second opinion in Israel, just to make sure we are on the right way, and the doctors there also said for a combination of radio and chemo, but advised to use Cisplatin instead, as they are using Erbitux/Cetuximab only as a last resort , when there are no other possibilities. Honestly, I feel as to go with Latvian doctors, because from what I have read Erbitux/Cetuximab is more effective and has less side effects. I would be very grateful if anybody could comment on that…
