Treatment after lung-to-bone cancer transmission?

 Treatment after lung-to-bone cancer transmission?

My brother has squamous lung cancer which has propogated to two
locations in his spine.  His upper spine could not be radiated further
because of the high dose received in earlier treatment of the lung
cancer, and the lower spine has since been irradiated to the limit.  The
primary tumor, meanwhile, appears by bronchoscopy to have started to
regrow at its core.  Presently he is receiving weekly chemo treatment.

He is not about to go gently into the night and is eager to engage in an
appropriate phase 1 or phase 2 clinical trial.  We believe known
systemic treatments can only buy a little time and that angiogenic
inhibitors offer no promise in the treatment of bone cancer.  But we
perceive that experimental viral treatments offer *some* promise.  We'd
dearly appreciate thoughtful comments on this and suggestions of other
treatments that might be appropriate.

Thank you....
