    Comment from: JWMPAM, 55-64 on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year Published: October 14

    My 54 year old wonderful wife has been treated with this drug for 6 months and she has tolerated it very well, with no negative side effects. Her CA-125 has leveled off between 35-45 for the entire time. Our oncologist said that Hycamtin does not build up toxicity in the body, therefore my wife can continue to take it as long as it's effective. He also said that the goal is not remission, but simply maintaining the current levels of her cancer. She hasn't felt sick at all, and our lives have been normal, thank the Lord, with the exception of the weekly visits to the oncologist. I pray that this regimen can continue. The infusion, with pre-meds, takes only one hour.
