Anybody know the definitive answer to this? Doctor is saying carboplatinum but I can never find a good resource that confirms. Only carboplatin. Not familiar with oncology at all. thanks.

Can I get some of your experiences with this? The doc clearly says "carboplatinum" for chemotherapy, but this is not in my drug book. I can only find carboplatin. When I google carboplatinum, I get some hits, but I don't trust google all that much. Any help would be appreciated.
