Gemzar is the same drug as Gemcitabine. It is a relatively new chemo for treating unresectable pancreatic cancer. Many, many people in this chat room have used it. If you want to find out more about it, a simple review of prior postings will give you a lot of first-hand accounts. Changes in liver enzymes could mean pancreatic cancer has invaded the liver (however, not necessarily, other things could cause changes.) The spread of pancreatic cancer to the liver is common with the outcome considered poor. A CT scan or MRI showing tumors in the liver would generally be a definitive diagnosis of spread to the liver.
