Re: Successful photodynamic therapy for nonresectable cholangiocarcinoma:

Hi Marion,

My dad must have been in group A in this trial, stenting and PDT against group B, stenting alone as his treatment went exactly as described in this link. The only difference is that my dad only got one treatment.

Is this an old article, I couldn't find a date on the link? I think that the trial has long since now stopped in the UK and am unsure if whether PDT is still offered here as a treatment or not.

Is this the date here - DOI: 10.1016/j.gastro.2003.07.015  ?

Hugs,

Gavin
