Fran ... Several on the boards have written posts about Rubitecan (RFS2000.) My husband also started the clinical trial for it on May 1. We're in the fifth week, with a ct scan scheduled for June 19 to see if it is working to stabilize his Stage IV tumors w/mets. Side effects were tolerable the first 4 weeks, getting a little harder this week. If proven effective, the ability to self-administer chemo pills, vs. an IV drip is preferrable to us, at least. If I can answer any questions for you to ask your Dad's onc, please e-mail me or post your questions here. In talking with John @ SuperGen, most PC patients fit into one of their study groups. We wish you well. --kek
