It is a very good development for us the CCA patients as a whole.
Base on 20 articles that I read, I think radioembolization and the other development to follow in the radiation field may lies the good fortune that our members are long wishing for-- to extend and provide a more tolerable and a better quality of life even it is not a cure.It will buy us a lot of good time,both for intra and extra hepatic CCA patients;The next one they are working on is proton and heavy ion therapy(according to the research,it will provide MUCH HIGHER radiation delivery to the tumor site while decreasing SUBSTANTIALLY the radiation that affect the surrounding health tissue ,therefore it may not produce any or much less the unwanted side effects as EBRT or even IBRT );they have to refine the process to make it more acceptable from the research to the practical side of commercial usage.
