化疗之前是不是要做个KRAS MUTATION TEST,结果如果是negative,是好事吗?
 Karen Goh Jwee Eng Chua : Most likely a good news ( 我是过来人 ) . if Kras mutation negative, the cancer will respond to a drug call Erbitux , a kind of latest targeted therapy ( very expensive chemo drug ) claimed to be very effective against colon cancer . PM me if you want to find out more .
Karen Goh Jwee Eng Chua : 化疗的费用 depends on what kind of drug ( and what type of cancer ) they use . If use Elbitux , each treatment will cost 12k above . KRAS mostly for stage 4 colon cancer
