Second AGA Foundation/Bernard Lee Schwartz Foundation Research Scholar Award presented
Date:4/27/2010

n. The first recipient, Kenneth H. Yu, MD, of the University of Pennsylvania, has focused his research on identifying screening protein markers associated with pancreatic tumors, which will yield a test to detect the disease at an early stage.

"We think that bringing young, capable and innovative investigators to work on finding a cure for pancreatic cancer is a worthy endeavor and one which will yield results," said the Schwartz family. "AGA recognizes the critical need for new research talent, which is focused on this area, and we are delighted to be their partner in creating this research award. We believe that progress toward a cure for pancreatic cancer will come from the concentrated efforts of smart investigators who have the resources they need and enough dedicated time to do their work."

Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths; more than 35,000 estimated deaths were expected to occur in 2009. More than 42,000 cases of pancreatic cancer were expected to be diagnosed in 2009. Currently, there are no methods for the early detection of pancreatic cancer; only 7 percent of cases are diagnosed in the early stages. The one-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is 24 percent and the five year survival rate is 5 percent; when the disease is identified in the early states, the five-year survival is only 20 percent.
