Avastin

Postby pennycsf » Thu Apr 24, 2014 9:04 am

One of our members posted the message below in the Coping and Support section. Does anyone have any useful information on this drug?

Hi, we've got support now to help us get our daughter into the french system, thanks for the info. We went to Toulouse hospital today, got an MRI scan booked in and may be able to start on Avastin- has anyone else got experience of this? It's supposed to interfere with the blood vessels so as to starve the tumour.

Hi there,
I am about to start Avastin too. It is an expensive drug and is used to prevent the cancer cells being fed by new blood vessels. The Chemocare website has some very useful information about this drug. http://chemocare.com/chemotherapy/drug- ... 80vTrHNxI4
Hope all goes well for your daughter.
Best wishes,
Linda
