    Hi,
    Unlike the last time about the Mayo liver transplant paper that I ordered the pre-print copy, this time I will not and therefore I did not have the chance to read the entire article.
    My “false hope” statement is purely guy feeling and not evidence- based.
    I simply use common sense and my biology and disease understanding about CCA to make that assumption .” CURE” is not the word I will use for this disease at this point .
    God bless.

    Percy-what exactly is the “false hope” I could only read the intro page and it seemed to say what we all know that transplant with chemo and radiation, if a possibility is our best chance to be considerd cure. I am curious what it said.
    Thanks-Cathy

    Hi,
    It sounds too good to be true. I believe the title of the article gives false hope to people who seek them; But the researchers who compiled the info. are from UCSF. you will be the judge.
    God bless.

    Liz, you work in a hospital if I remember correctly. Chances are your hospital has an institutional subscription to access the articles behind the paywall.

    Can we cure cholangiocarcinoma with neoadjuvant chemoradiation and liver transplantation? Time for a multicenter trial.
