Nov 12, 2019 · Has anyone been treated with Panitumumab for cancer? in Colorectal Cancer

thanks so much for the EMA info. I can't understand all of it, but what I did understand was very interesting and it does seem that we don't have to worry about reactions with food, at least as far as they know at this time. Fingers crossed.

Nov 12, 2019 · Vectibix in Colorectal Cancer

Hi @lah, our story is very similar to yours, though no mouth sores or weight loss as yet, but certainly metasmases to lungs and liver. Our understanding is that vectibix (panitumumab) is only supposed to stop the tumours from growing. No hope of cure. Also prayers.

Nov 10, 2019 · Has anyone been treated with Panitumumab for cancer? in Colorectal Cancer

hi @coleenyoung, One pharmacist told me he couldn't find much about any foods or supplements interacting with the drug but advised me to still refrain from high doses of antioxidants in food and teas. I never heard back from the hospital pharmacy, but will try again. The oncology nutritionists I found on online didn't have anything about panitumumab. Still looking.

Thanks, johnbishop. I found the article interesting, but I guess my fear is that some antioxidants, vitamins, etc. or else large amounts of them may block the receptors on cancer cells and restrict the admission of the cancer drug into the cell (as has been suggested by some of my health care team). Then again, other reputable sites such as the mayo grocery bag site recommended above seem to indicate that antioxidants are very effective in preventing cancer growth. My assumption was that it depends on the drug, but there doesn't seem to be much information about panitumumab, so I'm not sure whether to curb my intake of antioxidants and vitamin C and green tea etc. or indulge.

Yes, I'm on a magnesium supplement now. Today my oncology nurse referred me to the pharmacist, so I hope to find out more later today. As I mentioned earlier, on bevacizumab, I was told to AVOID high levels of anti-oxidents as they interfered with the drug. I don't want to decrease the effectiveness of panitumumab, which is why I asked.

Oct 27, 2019 · Has anyone been treated with Panitumumab for cancer? in Colorectal Cancer

My previous treatment of oxaliplatin, bevacizumab and flourocil for stage 4 CRC has stopped working and now I am being given panitumumab alone. My previous oncologist said I should not be taking antioxidents with bevacizumab, but this one (a few of them alternate at my hospital), didn't seem to know anything about whether antioxidents or cannabinoids would interfere with panitumumab. Does anyone know anything about this?

Anyone ever been on panitumumab? I have the basic I do sheet on it, but can'take seem to find out anywhere about diet. Wondering if any mentors are familiar with it?
