duodenal cancer - my father

Hi all,


thanks for listening my story. My father has diagnosed with duodenal cancer with stage 4 in May 2018. One year past, we had 12 times chemo therapy and another twice new drug chemotherapy, totally 14 times until now. But it seems the tumour progresses now. 


So I want to try the immunetherapy—-PD1 or PDL1 . But I don’t have any data or research about it using for duodenal cancer/small intestine cancer. Can anyone know about it? How many of using this new therapy?


Hope can hear from you, thanks.

It is ok. Thanks for asking. My father is only 55 years old now. I hope the immune therapy can really help him.
