Clinical Trial Participation Today May Lead To Future Breakthroughs In Pancreatic Cancer, One Of The Nation's Deadliest Cancers
Date:1/6/2014

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- January marks the annual observance of National Pancreatic Cancer Clinical Trials Awareness Month.  The five year survival rate of pancreatic cancer is just six percent. In the effort to highlight the urgent need to improve the survival rate for this disease, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is educating the public about clinical trials and the critical role they play in making scientific progress.

"Clinical trials are the way to make progress towards better treatments – participation today will shape the treatment landscape for the future," says Julie Fleshman, president and CEO of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. "In addition to being treated with new and innovative therapies, patients will be making a contribution to science by helping researchers learn more about the disease and help improve cancer care."

A recent analysis reveals that pancreatic cancer is projected to move from the fourth to the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States by the year 2020.  Now more than ever, we need to change the course of pancreatic cancer.

"It is also essential for patients to know, that in all pancreatic
