taxol/carbo/avaistan/abt-888 treatment

Wanted to let everyone my CA125 update after 4 treatments, my ca125 is down to 660 from a high of 8,030. 2 treatments left of all 4 drugs before I go to avistan every 3 weeks. CT scan showing no new tumors and small lymph nodes....I am preparing for a party to my friend NED who I hope to meet mid July!

Good for you to go into a clinical trial! I finished one and it seems successful NED gosh I recalculated tonight and I'm cancer free for 20 mos. Praying NED for you too.

I hadn't heard about using Taxol - Carbo and ABT-888 and Avastin. Sounds like you have all bases covered with those 4 drugs. I'm on Gemzar/Carbo/ABT - 888 and also having good results.

I've just completed cycle 5 with one more to go next month. Just hoping that the ABT-888 keeps me dancing with NED for a longer time than the first round which only lasted 4 months. I know it's typical for remissions to get shorter each time but I keep hoping I'm the exception.

Good luck to you in your party with NED. Will you be continuing with ABT-888 and/or Avastin after you complete the chemo?

I will just be on Avastin for 16 more rounds.
