Tnx Sharon, I have already found that, but I was hoping for an answer/a = comment that does not come
from Novartis. Tnx anyway!

I replied to you on news:sci.med If you told us which type of leukemia, I could point you to the
correct ACOR e-mail link. but since you haven't http://www.acor.org (see e-mail lists) J

Short term effects -- excelent. Side effects -- slight edema is the most prevalent. Results -- wait
ten years and ask again...

G has proven effective in a variety of applications and particularly in concert with other meds.

You might want to check www.robertsreview.com for latest interviews (audio, video, and
transcripts)with leading doc's and researchers on newest treatments, protocols, drugs, research
breakthroughs, and pain management. (I think they also offer special financial help to cancer
patients...along with lists of "top cancer treatment" hospitals/clinics.)

I check 'em once weekly at http://www.robertsreview.com

Hope this may be of some help to you.
