Week 25 in the war on cancer. Or, more specifically, in the war against Dyanne's version of EGFR positive lung cancer. Here are the highlights:
-We learned this week that the application to get Tagrisso (aka AZD9291 aka osimertinib) has been approved. We will get the drug tomorrow and Dyanne will start on it then. Getting this drug on compassionate use was our best case scenario. First of all we are grateful to get it at all, and secondly, getting it on compassionate use means we are free to combine with other types of treatment that may help. If we only got it on a trial, it would have been difficult to do some of the other treatment we are doing and planning.
