Re: Fasting to enhance chemo

Actually, the oral meds with food/fats seems more of an absorption/net dosage issue as opposed to the idea of fasting allowing normal cells to pull out of the target zone of typical chemo. But it is interesting if Tykerb absorption could be increased/maintained with lower dose comibined with certain foods. Suggests the dreaded Tykerrhea™ is more due to the pill base irritating the digestive tract as opposed to the circulating drug.
