Despite numerous therapy options, pancreatic cancer patients face one of the highest mortality rates. A more effective treatment is needed.
Lack of Specificity
Many procedures rely on "spray and pray" methods which fail to eliminate all cancer cells, leading to higher relapse and lower survival rates.
High Risk Procedures
Due to the location of the pancreas, many procedures such as surgery and radiation therapy risk affecting surrounding blood vessels and organs.
Severe Side Effects
Current therapies fail to only target cancer cells, leading to severe side effects.
Lack of Early Detection
Many cases go undetected until late stages, reducing the efficacy of current treatments.
