Hi, thanks for your message. My sister is 44 years old. She consulted many doctors before picking one to start her treatment, and she attributes a lot of her success in the past two years to her doctor. His name is Robert Nagourney and his office (Rational Therapeutics) is in Long Beach, CA. Here's a brief description about what they do: Rational Therapeutics develops and provides cancer therapy recommendations, which have been designed scientifically for each patient. Following the collection of living cancer cells obtained at the time of biopsy or surgery, Rational Therapeutics performs an EVAŽ (Ex-Vivo Apoptotic) assay on your tumor sample to measure drug activity (sensitivity and resistance). This will determine exactly which drug(s) will be most effective for YOU. We then make our treatment recommendation. The treatment program developed through this approach is known as "assay-directed therapy." You can read more if you or anyone else is interested at: http://www.rational-t.com Good luck to you and your husband as you search for the right treatment.
