                  My brother has'nt be lucky with folfirinox therapy after seven (48 hours shot). But as to side effects he complains about neuropathy, lack of taste,chilling, and mild diarrea.

                    rose1726 Sorry to hear that folfirinox did not work for your brother. PC is horrid. How can it reduce the size of liver tumor and yet grow another one? The cancer cells must be able to put up barriers that the chemo cannot penetrate.

                  my brother completed 7 cycles with folfirinox, the liver tumor shrunk 3 cm but a new tumor appeared in the liver. The oncologist said us the quimio wasnt working. Now he switch to therapy with gemtabicine and possibly a new drug ABRAXANE no approved in  USA. But we are trying to find out here in Venezuela where is permitted. treatment name is GTX in the States.
