My 11 year old nephew has a uncharacterized soft tissue sarcoma.... in the head that travelled to his lung. Removal from the lung was successful and chemo worked well. Two tumors removed from his head and both grew back within 60 days. Chemo and radiation were not successful. Struggling to find the right drugs/combinations and this is clearly aggressive. Does anyone know about or have experience with Champions Oncology? They essentially do a personal clinical trial by injecting the tumor into mice, grow it and test various drugs.
I saw from previous posts Dr. West was no favorable to the more rapid chemotherapy sensitivity testing -- but wondering about this. It takes about 6 months to grow the tumor and complete the analysis.
