: I am writting behalf of my husband who has non-small cell lung cancer stageIV. It has metastisized. He has been through 7 mos. of gemczar and navelbine chemo and 1 month of taxotere chemotherapy. His physicians have indicated that he would be a good canidate for ZD1839. We are having difficulty locating a clinical trial that is using this drug. We are desperately looking into the concept of compassionate pleas where a patient can get the drugs outside the confones of a clinical trial. Time is of the essence. We would greatly appreciate any advice. Thank you.
if you look on the internet site cybermed trials.com there is a trial for zd1839 where they are looking for non small cell lung cancer patients to join. when you go on the site go to oncology, then lung cancer, and you'll see it.
