R. is participating in the same Brivanib trial and also has a liposarcoma. He comes from Ohio and like many of us is hoping that the four pills, he takes everyday, will end the sarcoma nightmare. Last Friday was the day R. completed the second cycle (six weeks) and got CT scan results.
As I was leaving the hospital, after getting pills that will last me until the 23rd, I saw him. Contrary to the worried expression I had seen earlier on, there was a smile. The same happiness on his wife's face. Shrinkage, they told me, Shrinkage of FOUR tumors!
Four tumors shrunk! Four liposarcoma tumors responded to Brivanib.
Yes, I think this is going to be a happy year.
