Wanda, I don't know much about CPT11, but I do know about Gemzar. What chemo has your brother been on before? Has he been on Gemzar as a single agent? If on chemo before, did it not work? I was diagonsed with PC and mets to the liver in Sept. 1997. My cancer cell count before chemo was 34.000. My oncologist started me on Gemzar right away. By Dec. my cell count dropped to 104 and kept dropping. After 5 months of weekly chemo. The cancer in the tumor was gone - checked by CT SCan & ultra sound.I understand your brothers anxiety level - he's normal. Has his doc. put him on a mild tranquilizere(sp? I had them in the early day's - IT HELPED. PLEASE LET ME HEAR FROM YOU, I CARE. Best Wishes, K.P.S.
