Topic: The impact of neoadjuvant chemoradiation on liver transplantation

An article by Mayo Clinic doctors.

The impact of neoadjuvant chemoradiation on the tumor burden prior to liver transplantation in unresectable cholangiocarcinoma
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22140024

Eyebrow-raising quote:

"In our series disease recurrence was significantly associated with ... shorter waiting time to LT after the chemoradiation protocol"

IOW, waiting longer between chemoradiation and LT might be better.

Being a CC survivor due to a transplant I am not sure if that article was a positive thing??
I guess I will just have to keep proving it is!!
Lots of prayers-Cathy
