I'm trying to find Saforis - manufactured by MGI pharma...

Customer Question
I'm trying to find...

I'm trying to find Saforis - manufactured by MGI pharma... did it ever become available?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

This is for my husband who is undergoing chemotherapy for colon cancer. His mouth is so full of sores that he can barely eat. I have asked the oncologist if there is anything that can be done for this side effect. He said no so I have been researching it myself.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

This had been going on since they added irinot can to his regimen... about a month... he also gets 5-fu and bevucizamab

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No... this is my husband - not me

Hi, you are speaking with Dr Jonathan. The cancer patients we see in my clinic have found benefit from something called Gelclair. It is an oral gel. I don't believe Saforis is available at this time.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
