Pancreatic survival rates at standstill for 4 decades

the treatment of future patients.

They're also trying to identify molecules that could be used as early warning signs for the disease, to help diagnose patients before their cancer becomes too advanced.

Yasmin, 41, from London, lost her father Shaukat to pancreatic cancer in 2008. She said: "I lost my dad just 18 months after he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I don't want other families to go through what we did.

"The more research we do, the more chances we have to find cures. Progress is being made but it's hard to cope with the fact that it couldn't help dad. By the time pancreatic cancer is diagnosed, it's often too late for treatment to work.

"I miss my dad every day. Life changes around you, things go on, but I'm always aware there's somebody missing."

Pancreatic cancer is the tenth most common cancer in the UK. Every year, around 8,800 people are diagnosed with the disease and around 8,300 die from it.

Harpal Kumar, Cancer Research UK's chief executive, said: "It's shocking that so many patients are still losing their lives to pancreatic cancer, which is why we've made it a priority to ignite a new wave of research that will see the disease detected earlier and much needed treatments getting to patients sooner.

"Overall, more than half of all cancer patients now survive at least a decade, which is testament to the power of research to transform people's lives. But disappointingly, we are nowhere near that level with pancreas cancer, and we won't stop until we can bring those kinds of results to all patients, regardless of their cancer type."
