A recent and interesting article about the use of Avastin (bevacizumab) in the treatment of Glioblastoma Multiforme.  I know that our family has been concerned about when my own father will have to move from Temodar (Temozolomide) to Avastin.  My father is already weak from his radiation/chemo treatment and we do not look forward to anything that can potentially cause him more side effects.  We know that Avastin works well for some in decreasing tumor size/growth rate, while other experience serious side effects and no change in tumor size.   This article addresses why this drug may work well for some and not for others and hopefully this will lead to the combination of these VEGF/MET inhibitors being given in conjunction with Avastin (bevacizumab) to give brain tumor patients yet another win in the battle against Brain Cancer!
