TGen Foundation launches 'globalCure,' targets pancreatic cancer
Date:3/10/2011

ding TGen Physician-In-Chief, Dr. Daniel Von Hoff, already are seeing positive results.

For example, Howard Young is an Atlanta businessman and pancreatic cancer patient whose treatment under Dr. Von Hoff has resulted in a complete remission of his disease.

"I have pancreatic cancer, but I am blessed to know and be treated by Dr. Von Hoff and the extremely talented team at TGen. They saved my life and they will save the lives of over 235,000 people each year when we cure this cancer," said Young, a member of the TGen Foundation Board of Directors and Chairman of the globalCure National Advisory Council.

Through the PCRT and its international partnerships with academic, clinical, and corporate entities, globalCure is working to turn promising clinical therapies into improved healthcare methods, and do so more rapidly than ever. Experiments impossible only a few years ago now occur daily, leading to earlier diagnoses and smarter treatments.

"PCRT members represent the world's leading pancreatic cancer physicians and researchers, developing sophisticated clinical investigation techniques and promising new pancreatic cancer therapies in large patient populations," said TGen Foundation President Michael Bassoff.

As new understandings about the underlying genetic causes of the disease and its resistance to traditional treatments are made, globalCure will quickly communicate them to the international medical community for the ultimate benefit of patients and their families.

"I never thought about pancreatic cancer until the day doctors diagnosed my mother, Seena, with the disease. At that time, there were few places I could turn for information. My hope is that globalCure will not only provide a place where newly diagnosed patients and their families can turn for information, but that our work will provide hope for a cure," said globalCure national advisory council member Roger Magowitz.
