Hi Alex -
 
My Onc. said that carbo was a relatively new addition to the battle against TNBC but they were having great results.  Carbo seems to work well specifically on TNBC.  If you read above in this post, Connie posted a great study and you will see results that other women on the site have had.  Apperently certain centers have been using carbo for quite some time and it is growing in "popularity".
 
You said you had the same regime as I am having.  Are you finished with chemo now?  How did you tolerate it?  Any side effects?  How are you doing?  I hope you are doing well and having great results with your treatment!!!
