Switching to gemzar

My friend was diagnosed with Stage IV metastasized pancreatic cancer with 6 tumors on the liver on 7/13/2012.  On August 13, his oncologist started to treat him with folfirinex.  Since then his CA9-19 and CEA markers continue to rise substantially and the cancer has spread to the spine.  His oncologist is recommending that he switch to Gemar as it does not appear as if the Folfirinex is slowing the spread of the cancer. 

Has anyone experienced something similar?
