      Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia PA knew this over 2 years ago, they did it on me. I was on Etopiside and Cisplatin and always had those first. There were times when things were backed up in the infusion room and I offered to do Rad first & that's when they explained to me that the Cisplatin helped the rad work better.
