My husband has just been removed from a clinical trial for relapsed Sclc after 4 rounds.He had significant response for liver mets on the drug and his lung tumor has been stable since radiation after first line. He did, however develop 3 brain mets. We are having gamma knife surgery next week and then have been offered the choice of doing nothing, Topotecan, taxol or irinotecan. Our oncologist has made it clear he doesn't like Topotecan, but is letting us decide. He is offering us no more than a 5% chance of any of these drugs working. My questions are: Was the experimental chemo really a fail since it worked so well on the liver? Do you have a preference regarding the 3 drugs offered. My husband is currently in good physical condition with no symptoms. Hi is 61 years old.
