Dr. Argani - About a month ago my father discovered he had bile duct cancer. Unfortunately after spending time at Sloan Kettering it was found to be non operatable. Recently I learned of Gleevek and it's potential with certain types of cancers including GIST. My question is what would be the down side if my father would try Gleevek for his cancer. His opitons are somewhat limited at this time. Thankyou.
