Pancreas cancer is a deadly disease; more than 40,000 people are diagnosed with it each year. The average time of survival from diagnosis is five months. Only 25% survive a year, and the five year survival rate is 2%. In over 90% of those diagnosed, the disease has already spread outside the pancreas. Because of that, the only effective cure – surgery – is not feasible.

There are exciting new developments in treatment that may well improve these survival statistics and help more and more people to “skew right.” But the most effective way of improving survival is detecting pancreas cancer early, so that surgery is possible.  Researchers at the Huntsman Cancer Institute are developing an extremely promising early detection test.
