Thank you for sharing this article.  I believe personalized medicine is very promising, particularly when dealing with a disease as diverse as cholangiocarcinoma.  Samples from my husband's tumor are currently being tested by Foundation Medicine in Cambridge MA in the hope that they can identify some additional treatment approaches.

Re: Genetic Research in Cancer

Thanks Percy. A piece of my tumor was analyzed for different mutations which will be used in moving forward.
