My father was just recently diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer with liver mets. He will start a chemo clinical trial next week. The tumor in his pancreas is located in the tail and is 3cmx3cm (1 inch). The tumor in his liver is larger at about 4.6cm. He also has slightly enlarged lymph nodes but they measured 1.4cm. Would he be eligible for CK? If not not, if the tumors where to shrink or disappear on chemo would he than be eligible? Thanks!
