Pancreatic cancer is on the rise. The number of cases of pancreatic cancer is also increasing globally. In 2018, approximately 460,000 new cases of pancreatic cancer were reported.
Although advances in cancer treatments continue to grow, there is still a great need for new therapies. Promising new treatment options and ways to deliver these treatments more effectively are now under development.
Do you have locally advanced pancreatic cancer that cannot be treated surgically and has not spread to other parts of your body?
- We are currently looking for men and women who have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer who may be interested in joining a clinical research study called the TIGeR-PaC Study.
- The TIGeR-PaC Study is investigating a new way of administering chemotherapy in people with pancreatic cancer.
- If you qualify for the study, study medicine and all study-related care will be provided at no additional cost by your insurance or Company conducting the TIGeR-PaC Study.
- Participation in the TIGeR-PaC Study is voluntary, and you can leave the study at any time, for any reason.
