I came across this article about targeted chemo: ... metastasis

So this explains the type of treatment my family friend has been having. This was one of the options that my husband's oncologist and liver surgeon spoke about when he was originally diagnosed with the liver met. After second and third reviews of his MRI, they ended up recommending plain old surgery which is what he opted for.
