Hi,

I did some poking around and found that the usual, expected outcome is pretty poor. A case study I found said that HAART administered with chemo gave the best results, but it's about 4 years old now:

Try to speak with an oncologist who is up to date on using the latest genetic testing to map your brother's cancer and use that to select a treatment plan that is best for him.

If you can get to Thailand, I know that the Horizon Cancer Center at Bumrungrad Hospital is one of the best cancer centers in Asia, and perhaps the world. I had shoulder surgery there last year and they work with insurance companies from all over the world.

I hope this helps you!
