Anyone suffering from cancer with unknown primary?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Cancer Support Group.

Not yet. I am doing chemotherapy first to see if that takes care of it. If not, HIPEC or PIPEC may be an option, with either MD Anderson and/or Mayo Clinic. We’ll see.

Seems relevant to my situation. Do you know if the Mayo Clinic offers this treatment? I am being treated by a local oncology team here, in New Orleans. I am also being tested/treated at MD Anderson. I don’t see this treatment on offer by these institutions. ChatGPT lists a few places; Germany, Japan, etc.

Are you on clinical trial at MD Anderson?

@tobydrake7, the team of Dr. Amit Merchea performed the first PIPAC in the USA on Dec 4th, 2019 at Mayo Clinic Jacksonville, FL.

Pressurized intraperitoneal aerosol chemotherapy (PIPAC) is a promising and innovative method for treating peritoneal metastasis.

Here's a clinical trial that Dr. Merchea is conducting.

I filled out the online form to be considered for the clinical trial. Thanks again for this information.

I’m in the UK. I know they do the latest PIPAC in Germany and Spain. I think here too. There may be trials in US and I have no idea what the Mayo do. Sorry I can’t be of any more help.

No worries. They are doing trials at City of Hope in CA.

There’s also PIPAC but not sure if that would be relevant- it’s the latest treatment after HIPAC. May be worth asking about? Be thinking of you Toby.
