Advancing Research for Pancreatic Cancer
In 2016, an estimated 53,000 people were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer—making it the 12th most common cancer in the United States. Unfortunately though, only about 7.7% of patients with pancreatic cancer survive with the disease beyond five years. This difficult-to-treat disease relies on new and innovative therapies to provide hope and support to patients and families impacted by this diagnosis. In this third installment of our series on cancer clinical trials, host Kim Thiboldeaux and guest Dr. Allyson Ocean will be talking about pancreatic cancer and the need for clinical trials to discover new treatments and hope.
