Pancreatic Cancer Research
At City of Hope, we offer access to drug, surgical and other clinical trials aimed at improving survival rates and enhancing quality of life.
We are investigating a drug called PEGPH20, which may disrupt pancreatic cancer cells' ability to fight off chemotherapy by creating a barrier around tumors.
We are comparing blood samples of healthy adults and pancreatic cancer patients to search for DNA abnormalities. The goal is to design a DNA test that detect a cancer recurrence or spread at its earliest stages.
City of Hope is working on an improved supportive care program aimed at improving quality of life and the overall care experience.
