It has been a while since I posted on the neo-adjuvant chemo/radiation followed by liver transplant protocol that is being done at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis by Dr. William C. Chapman, but he and other centers like Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, Jacksonville, FL and the University of Nebraska are curing patients with Klatskin’s tumors. It is amazing that few doctors are referring their cholangiocarcinoma patients to Dr. Chapman or the other centers who do this procedure. (314) 362-7792
It appears to be a cure with a survival rate predicted at above 80%. Timing is crucial so don’t let your oncologist say it doesn’t work. I am in contact with and following survivors.
