Dear Sirs, I write you from Italy. My Mum (aged 62) has an unresectable gallbladder cancer of 8cm (stage IV). She has only a small pain at the moment but doctors say she has got only two months residual life. I've read that last year researchers in the US have identified an angiogenesis inhibitor in gallbaldder cancer (TGFb1). Is there any centre in Europe or USA where this research has become a therapy? If yes, which are the results? Thank you very much for your help.
