Pancreatic Cancer - Searching For A Breakthrough

We are, of course, constantly scouring the world to bring you news of developments in the treatment of pancreatic cancer, which is ultimately what this blog is about.

It is about research being conducted locally into finding protein markers in the bodies of patients, markers which would enable treatment to be more closely tailored to the individual, reduce suffering and hopefully extend lives.

This is a fine example of efforts going on all over the world to get on top of this appalling illness. If you have known a sufferer from pancreatic cancer, you will understand the need to find a cure or an effective treatment. Don't forget you can help by clicking on the "donate" button on this page.
