pancreatic cancer stage III

病患者男 - 58歲

This is from Canada Edmonton, my friend he is 58 , he was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer of the third stage two weeks ago. He was informed by the doctor that he could not go through surgery or radiation. All he could do is go through Chemotherapy to extend his life. He will be having a biopsy tomorrow. I was wondering and would like to ask, because of the advancements of medicine Hong Kong, are there any other better alternatives than Chemo?
Thank you for your question.

Currently, the best first line treatment for inoperable pancreatic cancer is still chemotherapy with or without radiotherapy.
Target therapy or immunotherapy have clinical data in 2nd or subsequent lines of treatment, when patient fails to respond to chemotherapy.
