If I can remember right it is 6 weeks of Interferon shots, Cysplatin, Continues 5FU and Radiation. Than six months of Gemzar.

It is important that this protocol be done by the folks at Virginia Mason and Picozzi or MD Anderson. These two have had the most success in administering it. It is doable, and really the first week or two are not so bad, week three gets a little worse and than last three weeks are doable, but close watch type situation. Then you rest, recover and do the six months of Gemzar. Now, there might be some changes. Research Buster's Dad on this board as his wife did this protocol.

Good Luck MaryG
