- Type of Study: Drug
There are two usual approaches for treating this type of cancer, chemotherapy (gemcitabine and cisplatin) or radiation therapy. The purpose of this study is to compare any good and bad side effects of using the combination of gemcitabine and cisplatin with the combination of gemcitabine and cisplatin followed by radiation therapy to find out which is better. The addition of radiation therapy to the usual chemotherapy could shrink the cancer, but it could also cause side effects.
To Be Eligible For This Study, Patients Must Have Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma (A Type Of Liver Cancer).
