Hello Pat.  I'm in the UK - where are you?

No unfortunately Tykerb does not yet have a licence in the UK.  Glaxo are doing clinical trials with it at the moment.

Best wishes

Hello Pat,

There is light at the end of the tunnel:

GSK - muscling in on cancer

GSK expects to have four key cancer drugs in final-stage clinical trials next year, it said on Wednesday. (trials in 2006)

Europe's biggest drug maker said the four drugs -- Tykerb, formerly known as lapatinib, eltrombopag, casopitant and pazopanib -- all held promise for fighting tumours or helping patients overcome the side-effects of chemotherapy.

Until now, oncology has been a small area for Glaxo but the group believes new products will make it a major player in the fast-growing world of cancer medicine.
I hope this gives you some comfort.
 
Sincerely
