Three moths ago my brother in law Peter (45 years) was diagnosed with stomach / adenocarcinoma cancer, unfortunately, metastasis at the liver was discovered. He’s been on chemotherapy all this time, after evaluation it was confirmed that the tumor at the stomach is stable; however, the metastasis is spreading even more.

This week he was proposed different alternatives for the future treatment, one of them is to become part of clinical trial study for treatment with SUTENT.

Does any one know about this kind of treatment??

Any information will be highly appreciated.
