Mr. N.Navendan has been diagnosed with colorectal Cancer(ADENOCARCINOMA, GRADE II) which is further spread in the Liver. Currently he is taking Chemotherapy sessions. He is now on his 3rd session. Doctors have planned for 5 sessions totally out of which 2 more to go. On further investigation of the genes of the Cancer tissues which are named as NRAS and KRAS genes have resulted as "WILD TYPE". Since it is a WILD TYPE, doctors advised that a curative therapy can be done which is called as epidermal growth-factor receptor(EGFR) Targeted therapy. The medicine used for the treatment is CETUXIMAB combination which has ERBITUX 5mg/ml solution for infusion and ERBITUX 100mg infusion. This therapy has to be done once in a week continuously for a minimum of 12 weeks along with chemotherapy. The EGFR targeted therapy injections costs Rs.97000 to 100000 per injection. Since 12 injections have to be given, the total cost for the EGFR therapy would cost upto 12 lakhs approx. Hence total cost of the complete treatment would be around 20 lakhs (including Chemotherapy, EGFR therapy and Surgery). We are left with only 2 weeks to start the EGFR therapy.
