My husband has been on this treatment for the past 7 months with NO I repeat NO BAD SIDE EFFECTS AT ALL. CPT-11 is a cousin of rubtican (from the same tree) yet it is easier to tolerate. My husabnd gets 45 minutes gemzar followed by 45 minute infusion of CPT 11, two weeks on one week rest. He has had shrinkage in tumors. The best part has been no hair loss, nausea or any other effects other than fatigue two days after treatment. On that day he usually comes home from work after lunch, rests and is better by dineer. If you have any other questions please let me know.
