Cholangiocarcinoma is a cancer of the bile ducts, a network of tubes that connect the liver, gallbladder and small intestine. One way to treat such cancer is to deliver drugs directly to the liver itself. A clinical trial led by Jonathan M. Hernandez, M.D., Investigator in the Surgical Oncology Program, is researching chemotherapy for liver-only cholangiocarcinoma (cancer that has occurred in the liver but has not spread elsewhere in the body). The trial will take place at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and there is no cost for participation.
