I would encourage any patietn with Stage IV disease to seek ou an oncologist who is experienced with the GTX regimen. The results are exceptional and I believe they represent a significant stepforward for the treatmetn of advanced pancreatic cancer.

hi, if anyone can help.
my father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, its at the head of the pancreas and when a surgery was done on him they couldn’t remove it since its close to stomach. It didn’t metastasize any where else and the oncologist suggested to do the gtx. My question is does the gtx help to shrink the tumor so that we could undergo a successful surgery for cure.
thanks in advance

My dad has been on the GTX protocol for 2 years! This has worked aazingly for him, as his numbers have returned to and stayed in the normal range...CT is still showing no tumpors IN or ON the pancreas. He was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic pancreatic cancer in Feb 2008 and was told he had a couple of weeks "if he was lucky" He wanted to fight, and was out all day Saturday planting a flower garden-so not only is he still here, he has QUALITY!
Stay strong and Keep fighting!!

I am new to this forum, my dad has stage 4 PC too. He was just diagnosed one month ago and while his surgeon had initially mentioned GTX as the likely course of action, the Oncologist has suggested a combo Cisplatin/Gemcitabine.. (scheduled to start wednesday)
I am reading so much here about this GTX? We went to a very reputable cancer center - I'm wondering why they didn't suggest that. Now looking into it, I'm seeing soo many different chemo drug names and combos, we want him to have the best we can get! I'm so confused!
