Pancreatic Cancer Clinical Trials
Pancreatic cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the pancreas, which is the organ that helps digest that food you eat and makes hormones that control the levels sugar, insulin and other substances in the blood.
According to the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, in 2020 an estimated 57,600 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the U.S. It has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers, mainly because there are no detection tools to diagnose the disease in its early stages, therefore it is important to find the perfect trial for you in a timely manner and Massive Bio helps you do just that.
Massive Bio’s number one priority is to create positive outcomes for cancer patients. With the Clinical Trial Matching Service and Virtual Tumor Board, you are one-step closer to reaching that positive outcome.
Cancer clinical trials are important for cancer treatment; they find and prove new ways to fight cancer. By participating in a clinical trial, you can find the best treatment for your pancreatic cancer and help others who are struggling with pancreatic cancer. Getting access to the right clinical trials and right treatments shouldn’t have to be overwhelming. That’s why Massive Bio uses the clinical trial matching service to match pancreatic cancer patients to the right clinical trials based on the stage of disease, biomarker status, geographical location and past medical history.
Pancreatic Cancer Treatment Options
Pancreatic cancer treatment will be discussed with your cancer care team and will depend on factors including your age, other serious health conditions, the stage of your cancer, whether surgery can remove the cancer or not, and your feelings about the possible side effects. When determining which treatment option to go with, it is important to weigh the benefits and risks.
Pancreatic cancer can be treated with surgery, ablation or embolization treatments, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, clinical trials, and pain control.

“The initial report and clinical trial recommendations was excellent.” So far, my experience with Massive Bio has been very positive. My initial interaction with case manager was informative and he provide me with the proper forms to be completed. The initial report and clinical trial recommendations was excellent. The report provided a details summary of my complete cancer medical history including test results, chemotherapy treatments (which revealed an error in the history on file at one medical institution), and procedures. My follow up conversation with oncology nurse was professional, informative and educational. She spent a lot of time with me reviewing the clinical trial options, answering my questions on my current chemotherapy treatment regiment, and was proactive regarding follow up and next steps. I look forward to working with Massive Bio on my current cancer journey and hope that they can assist me with combatting and winning this battle.
"I have the confidence of knowing that my plan is based on the most current science as it applies to my cancer type." My experience with Massive Bio was professional and satisfying. As a stage 4 cancer patient seeking a second opinion and treatment plan due to recurrence of a stomach tumor, I did not have time to lose negotiating the customary hurdles of my HMO insurance plan. I needed to quickly get opinions of recognized leaders in the field. The concept of a Virtual Tumor Board with quality doctors and health care professionals affiliated with Massive Bio was appealing. I was convinced this approach was worth a try...and I was not disappointed. After meticulously collecting details about past diagnoses, treatments, and tests, a thorough report was submitted to both me and my primary oncologist within days. The treatment plan prioritized strategies and reviewed clinical trials appropriate to my case. The plan was so thorough, well conceptualized, and clearly written that my oncologist and I had only a few questions. Those that we did raise were answered quickly and concisely.
"Massive Bio gave my mother and our family a new lease on hope and time." Dealing with a cancer, where all the standard options are limited, Massive Bio helped make the case for new immunotherapy which was selected specifically based on my my mother’s treatment challenges. When our oncologist left, Massive Bio took us that much further.
