Cyramza and Taxol treatments

Hi, My husband was diagnosed with esophageal adenocarcinoma in June of 2014.
He has gone through all the regular treatments: Chemo, Radiation and surgery to remove 2/3 rds of the esophagus and 1/3 rd of stomach and at that time was stage 3 with a couple of suspicious lymph nodes removed.
His first scan after this treatment showed a node spread to neck area.
He was treated with radiation to target that one node.
and next scan showed more spread of lymph nodes to a wider area in chest ...he was treated with Cisplatin and something else...the following scan showed more spread to other lymph nodes...he was treated with oxilaplatin and Erubicin (Sp?)and also Xeloda.
He was recently scanned and the treatments have not worked.
Because he had 3 rounds of the platins he will begin an IV treatment of Cyramza, and paclitaxel, ....also (decadrone.. the night before and morning of IV.)
Bottom line is.. have others any experience with this new treatment...I understand that Cyramza is a biologic and not chemo. Is there any hope that this will work this time??
We're beginning to think this is the beginning of the end...and are very much on edge.
Thank you so much for any info you can give us.
This is my first post on any discussion board so forgive me if I make no sense.
Liz
