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.
