Sister is so weak. Do you think take iressa (gefitinib) can help her sit up?

In brief: Gefitinib/Iressa

May work quite well if she has the egfr mutation codon 19, 21.
More likely in women, non-smoker, asian. Iressa (gefitinib) has low adverse effects, but unlikely to work in those not fitting above description. Sorry for your sister's plight.
