I posted the below not too long ago and I wanted to give an update. My
parent's friend who was dx'd earlier this year had a tumor on the head of her
pancreas with portal vein/SMV involvement. Only 17 people were accepted into
the study at the time she started. Apparently she doesn't react to CA19-9 so
they have used CEA and ct's to monitor her condition and her CEA is 2.7 in
the normal range now with no tumor present. She looks fantastic and is back
to her normal life. In fact all of the people in the study are doing well
with all going into the normal range. The criteria is very tight, with no
previous treatments having been done, no smoking, etc.
After all have completed the trial, it's going to be shut down for 2-3 years
to monitor these patients before going on to a phase II. Is that normal?
I'm wondering if anyone else out there has tried this chemo.
