Chemotherapy

How effective is Chemotherapy?

Chemotherapy or chemo has not been very effective in treating bile duct cancer in the past. Over the last few years, some drugs have been approved but are not able to cure the disease. For instance, chemotherapy that can be taken orally was recently approved for liver cancer. It is not as effective as the other therapies and is not considered curative, so it is not used unless the other therapies are not available.
