Afinitor® (everolimus)

Post by pennycsf » Sat Jan 08, 2011 7:20 pm

Lottie (who's husband suffers from NET) tells us that her husband is now being treated with this comparatively new drug which is made by Novartis and has recently been approved for use in the EU. Details can be found at afinitor.com, but please do bear in mind that Novartis is a pharamceutical company and not without some bias!

Having said that, the results of a research study can be found at http://www.wellsphere.com/cancer-articl ... cer/921203 The study is reported fully in many medical journals but this link gives an accurate summary.
