Oral chemotherapies available?


Question from Nancy: I am dealing with the fourth go-around with breast cancer. Have been on pretty much all meds during this time. Presently on Xeloda. Question is whether there are any other oral chemotherapies that may be available sometime soon?
Answers - Patricia A. Ganz, M.D. It's very difficult to give medical advice to a patient that I have not seen and don't have their full record, so it would be difficult to make recommendations about your specific situation.

On Wednesday, August 15, 2007, the Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Managing Ongoing Medications. Patricia Ganz, M.D. and moderator Lillie Shockney, R.N., B.S., M.A.S. answered your questions about staying on track with breast cancer medications you have to take on a regular basis.
