Here is an article on Gemzar that you might have already found.

I am slightly familiar with Gemzar as it has been found to be  remarkably effective for a type of lung cancer and for pancreatic cancer, both of which do not respond well to any treatment.   The drug can extend life and I was told that it did not provoke extreme side effects, at least compared to the previous regimens.
