: this info on oncology is new to me. My brother has unresectable pancreatic cancer diagnosed in

: 3rd.) All the literature that I have read on unresectable is that Rubetican has the best success
: rate. Would love to hear of any helpful info. Claudia
i guess we cant mention direct site names here but if you search with the word rubetican you'll find a small synopsis on that article along with other stuff. if you go into the national library of medicine go into medline and type in rubetican and any synoposis on any published articles will come up. also if you wan't the whole article you can go into a teaching hospital, they all have libraries(go on a sat when the med students aren't there) and a librarian should be able to get it for you (they have lonsome doc accounts)
if you type in angiogensis you will find the angiogensis foundation home page, it will give you a list of 40 of them in development and clinical trials. The thought behind these are they will permenatley stop the ability of the cancer to grown, they are non toxic(like chemo) they interfere with the cancer's ability to get new blood supply.. the patient eventually ends up taking a pill a day like for any other medical condition. most of them are still in the development process.
