 Adenocarcinoma Stage IV

My Japanese friend has a lung cancer.  He was suggested that he needs
chemo therapies, but it is said that such therapies available in Japan are
behind about twenty years than those in the USA and UK.  It is so because
there would be in Japan lots of barriers that hinder medical developement.

He is now in adenocarcinoma Stage IV.  Urgent situation, indeed.  He strongly
wishes that he has the best treatment in UK.  Anyone knows who is the best
British doctors for the cancer, whether it is possible for am oversea patient
to
have such a treatment, what to do if possible...etc.?  Any information on the
problem is appreciated.

For stage IV lung cancer, especially adenocarcinoma, there isn't much
in the USA or UK that wouldn't be available in Japan.  Treatment isn't
curative, and the treatment used depends partly on how one's health is
otherwise.  What chemotherapy was recommended to him in Japan?  Did
his doctor recommend that he go to the US or UK?  H2

there is a substantial difference when it comes to investigational
therapies.
