am going in for tonsillectomy and neck dissection. Was told that followup treatment using standard Cisplatin and radiation would likely be recommended and start 4 weeks after surgery. Does anyone have data about whether the use of the biologic Erbitux can be combined with Cisplatin chemo and radiation. Reports only say that treatment uses one or the other with radiation. Erbitux blocks new cell growth but long term data for reoccurance is not readily available. Erbitux is a new treatment technique. Where does one go to get updated information on this?
