: My grandfather (78) has just been diagnosed with primary pancreas cancer and a secondary tumour in the liver. I believe that the doctors plan to do nothing, and thus I have begun to look into the drug thalidomide. I was first made aware of research into the drug on a program in 1998, and I was wondering if these drugs (Thalidomide, Angiostatin, Endostatin etc and other antiangiogenic drugs) have any hope in curing, or at least significlt affecting his outcome. Thanks for any replies.
Rubetican was presented at the new orleans convention in may with a combination treatment with different agents. two courses of rubetican with cisplatin did produce a complete remission of one pancriatic cancer.also partial in cervical cancer. mixed with gemzar it produced a 50% reduction in tumors in breast and lung. all this was done in just the phase one trials too, so expectations are good for that drug.
