    moontje……..5F-U- Fluorouracil belongs to the class of chemotherapy drugs known as anti-metabolites. It interferes with cells making DNA and RNA, which stops the growth of cancer cells. It has been used for many years and lately has gained some additional attention due to the Hepatic Pump, which directs the agents directly into the liver.
    Gemzar -Gemcitabine Hydrochloride – works in a similar way.
    Both drugs are used as a single agent or in combination with other agents. Using the “search” function will lead you to many postings re: these drugs.
    I wonder whether any of your physicians have recommended molecular testing in order to identify pathway inhibitors which may be beneficial as well?
    Additionally, have clinical trials been recommended not only in the Netherlands or Belgium, but in France or Italy as well?
    Hugs,
