My mother has recently been diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. The tumour is about 6cm in diameter. There is also disrupted liver function but this is probably due to the bile duct being blocked at the moment. Can anyone answer the question as to whether CK would be an appropriate treatment in such circumstances

Thanks John Rampton

It could be used, but would likely be more effective if some tumor shrinkage could be achieved with chemotherapy
