: My Dad has recently been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He is not a candidate for surgery. He has lost a lot of weight, is very weak and tired. Has anyone been involved with rubetican? What are the pros/cons of this? Side effects? My Dad is scheduled to begin traditional chemo and radiation in 1 1/2 weeks. We live in the Boston area and are going to Dana Farber this week for a second opinion. Any info. you could provide would be helpful. My entire family is devasted by this. Thank The Johns hopkins chat Board is excellent. What is needed here are antiangios and antifarnesyls. also immunotherapy. 2ME2 and clinoril are pills you can get that can help.
