Positive Clinical Trial Results for Pancreatic Cancer Patients
Locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC) is one of the toughest forms of pancreatic cancer. A recent study found that a combination of chemotherapy, radiation therapy and the blood pressure drug, losartan, allowed for tumor removal in 61% of patients and significantly improved survival rates. Co-author of the study, Rakesh Jain credits NFCR’s support of his pre-clinical trial work as the building block for this clinical trial.Learn More
