About Pancreatic Cancer

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) pancreatic cancer is the 13th most common cancer worldwide. WHO states that over 232,000 new cases of pancreatic cancer are diagnosed each year across the globe. According to the National Cancer Institute of the United States (US) an estimated 42,470 individuals will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2009 in the US and 35,240 will die from this cancer. Incidence and mortality rates have remained steady for the last 30 years, indicating a great need for better, more efficacious treatments. The reasons for poor survival include the insidious and aggressive nature of the tumors, late diagnosis, low rates of resection and the lack of effective therapies. According to WHO, there is currently no early diagnostic test or population based screening procedure for pancreatic cancer. Due to the lack of diagnostics, even better treatments will be necessary to overcome pancreatic cancer in later disease stages.
