To observe the therapeutic effects of Oriental herbal prescriptions on an advanced metastatic gallbladder cancer patient.

Methods :
Hang-Am-Plus (HAP), Gun-Chil-Gye-Bok-Jung (GGJ) and Se-Gan-San (SGS) were prescribed three times a day. To observe the therapeutic effects of oriental medical prescriptions, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images, tumor markers and laboratory tests were carried out regularly.

The levels of AST, ALT, ALP, γ-GTP, TB, DB, CA19-9, and CEA decreased significantly from November 29th 2011 to March 14th 2012. There was no interval change on CT images taken between November 15th 2011 and January 3rd 2012.

In this case, it could be concluded that Oriental medicinal treatment might be considered as a palliative alternative therapy for the advanced metastatic gallbladder patient.
