GB cancer is: Uncommon, so few studies done prospectively. Looking at results in people treated empirically, perhaps one person in 10 will respond. That needs to be balanced against side effects that tend to occur in most. Frank discussion about symptom rrelief focus rather than "shrink tumor" at all cost.
