Does not sound: a proper treatment. Please get a second opinion, as what yo have described does not fit with any recognized treatment for treating pancreatic cancer or liver disease.

Chemotherapy: There is no machine that reliably cleans the blood of cancer cells. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgical removal are the only truly proven effective pancreatic cancer therapies. If he is itching, this can be a sign that his bile duct is getting blocked. Sometimes a stent is needed to get the bile flowing properly again.
