For Cancer: “My experience with this drug came thru my mother to whom had Small Cell lung cancer. She was diagnosed in January 2013. She underwent chemo therapy. She had complained to her Dr. that she was experiencing fluttering and tightness in her chest during chemo treatments. December 13, 2013 she had a severe allergic reaction to this medication. She passed away December 26, 2013 at 12:05 am. The Dr. Stated it was an experimental drug at best and the results were unpredictable. So they used my mother as a guinea pig is that it?”

For Cancer: “Have had minimal side effects with Carboplatin. Have also retained my hair after 4 treatments 21 days apart. The day after treatment and then next two days are generally: Very tired and low energy. Day three and beyond are increasingly better.”

Paraplatin (carboplatin) for Ovarian Cancer: “Although I developed serious reactions to this medicine, it was best medicine to use with Gemzar over my initial diagnosis and secondary recurrence. On my third recurrence (ten years later) I again had a reaction butmnot until my CA-125 went below 1,000!”
