World Pancreatic Cancer Day

There are several types of pancreatic cancer, depending on whether the cancer began in the exocrine or endocrine component. Pancreatic cancer is often difficult to diagnose due to the lack of symptoms until a later stage. However, as the cancer begins to grow, patients suffer from pain in the upper abdomen, loss of appetite and weight, yellowing of the skin and eyes, weakness and depression.

The risk of Pancreatic Cancer increases with age, and men are more prone to the disease than women. Other factors include family history of pancreatic cancer, smoking and unhealthy diet. In order to reduce the risk of pancreatic cancer, doctors advise exercising, maintaining a healthy weight, consuming less red meat and more fruits and vegetables.

Numerous clinical studies in Pancreatic Cancer are currently being conducted. They aim to improve the treatment safety and efficacy as well as the number of options available to the patients.

GCT has been supporting oncology clinical trials since 2001. We are excited to see the progress that’s been made in cancer treatment, and we hope to see more promising trial results in the near future.
