    KRAS mutation

    Everything single email I receive, listing new people that have joined, indicates they are KRAS mutation positive. I think there might be a misunderstanding or a flaw in the system. I know there is a higher percentage of those with the mutation but not EVERYONE. I can’t believe there is that many people not eligible for Erbitux/Vectibix.

      No I completely understand it. I just seems everyone that joins here indicates they are KRAS mutation positive which can’t be the case.

      It might be a flaw in the system or something because I just did a search on people who have colorectal cancer and the first three names I looked at said they were not KRAS positive or don't know if they are. (The ones I looked at were My928Toy, TeamJason, and Lolora ... )

      Another reason there might be more KRAS mutation positive people is that they haven't responded to treatment and are seeking help about what to do.
