The evidence on "rechallenge" suggests that a small minority of patients will demonstrate a significant response (tumor shrinkage) -- under 10% -- but a much more sizable proportion will demonstrate stable disease or perhaps a small amount of tumor shinkage. This doesn't tend to be a long lasting response the second time around (most typically 3-5 months), but it's potentially valuable.

Good luck.

Good luck on your upcoming scan and the whole treatment plan, Gail!
