Hello and thank you for asking

The chemotherapy will be dicaided based on some factors,one of them it’s the performance stauts of patcients.

Well know drug for using in this case is Gemcitabine alone or combinded with other drugs

If the patient is a good candidate the doctor may use FOLFIRINOX a combination of chemotherapeutic drugs
