phase 1 trial

Hi there, I posted a few weeks ago to say my Mum may be going on a trial as they were all out of options.  She started the trial yesterday. They are trying a combination of eribulin and capecitabine. As it's a phase 1 trial it's to establish a safe dose so she will be given the drugs in an increasing amount to see what the body can handle and the effect it has.  I will keep you all posted on her progress and any good news that comes from the trial. Please let me know if any of you have tried these forms of chemo before on their own, although I believe they were mostly used in breast cancer.
My love and best wishes, as always,  to all you strong women
