My father right after his colon surgery went into a heavy chemo for at least 10 months in order to reduce metastatic lessions in his liver and be a candidate of liver resection. the chemo period was devastating for him and the 8 lessions in his liver were increasing. as a last choice went into liver operation and after 50 days the metastases in the liver came back and there were lymph nodes in his lung.
The doctors td us that there was nothing else to do.
Then it was time to try Molecural analysis of the liver tissue taken from the surgery. The results showed specific combination of chemo for this specific tumor and that the previous drugs were the wrong ones. We found a Doc that accepted to follow these results and the results were 100% success withing 3 months. A pet scan showed all tissues clear!!! That happened October last year.
From that time my father is taking only Protocel and all his tests are excellent!!!
The treatments should be personalized! Molecural analysis gives the tumor characteristics in order for the doctors to be able to make the right combination of chemo that will be a benefit for the specific patient!!!
