Helpful Website

I often watch the video clips on GRACE (when I’m not on cancer overload).

The other day I picked up on an oncologist, Dr Ravi Salgia, talking about this website CollabRx.  The target audience appears to be a well educated one in the cancer world.  I learned I’m not one of them, as many of the large words got me all sorts of confused.

What I did find useful is the Therapy Finder Tool on the Patients page.  After filling out a quick form, clicking find drugs and trials, it spits out a nice list of treatment options for lung cancer patients (I noticed some survival statistics – you are warned).

The website states that the clinical trial data is updated every 2-weeks.  Since I am not an expert I can’t confirm that the website is 100% truth, but with the list of Expert Affiliations it seems quite credible.  If you determine otherwise, please inform me.

I am going to add this Therapy Finder Tool to my links page.

    Thanks Kim! At least for me I need to get my hands on molecular testing results in progress. One way or another I will have them by next Tuesday at oncologist’s appointment. Tools like this at least for me I find helpful to be more active in my care. 14 months of Stage 1 left me too unquarded.
