Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma

I'm Preetham Babu from Mysore,India. My father Dinesh Babu is suffering from Lung Cancer (Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma) from the two year. Initially the disease had occured in 2010 and treatment was done through radiation. We assumed that it had cured. But the disease again occured in april 2014. He went through 4 cycles of chemotherapy and now he is in a bit of unstable condition(stage 4 cancer). we came to know about IMITINEF MERCILET that will be given in your YASHODHA HEMATOLOGY CANCER INSTITUTION in Pune. I have attached the previous report about the treatment that he has undergone till now. Please tell us the about advance treatment that will be given under your institution. Is there any alternative remedy for this type of cancer? Please help us through your valuable suggestions...
