Survival Benefits of Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine Treatment for Patients With Pancreatic Cancer

Survival Benefits of Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine Treatment for Patients With Pancreatic Cancer

We conclude, from this small retrospective study, that TCM treatment was associated with a survival benefit in patients with pancreatic cancer. In addition, TCM in combination with WM would be a better optimal treatment for patients with pancreatic cancer to improve survival time. More importantly, we provide TCM practitioners with a proposal that heat-clearing, diuresis-promoting and detoxification TCM treatment may improve the efficacy of TCM in patients with pancreatic cancer.
