(B) pancreatic cancer radiotherapy
Preoperative adjuvant therapy, reducing tumor resection beneficial for early stage (I, II) patients; cancer can not be removed and those with severe back pain can be alleviated or eliminated after radiotherapy. Methods of external irradiation, interstitial irradiation and intraoperative irradiation. Prone to external irradiation damage surrounding tissue, clinical application is limited.

Pancreatic cancer is not sensitive to chemotherapy. Currently there are slightly crisp to fluorouracil (5-Fu)-based combination chemotherapy regimens, such as 5-Fu + epirubicin (ADM) + mitomycin C (MMC) and 5-Fu + MMC + ADM chain gill (STE), etc., is better than single drug therapy may improve the outcome and prolong survival. Recently introduced to gemcitabine (Gemzar, G)-based regimen such as GP [top of gemcitabine + JI Lead (DDP)], GCF (folic acid, hydrogen prisoners gemcitabine + +5- Fu) and so on. Its efficacy and superior to 5-Fu-based joint programs. There are reports of local arterial infusion chemotherapy, more effective than intravenous chemotherapy, not only can improve the drug concentration in tumor tissues, and can reduce the side effects of chemotherapy.
