Pancreatic Cancer Clinical Trials

Fox Chase Cancer Center doctors are not just clinical specialists—they’re also world-renowned cancer researchers. The results of studies conducted by Fox Chase doctors have been crucial in advancing our understanding of pancreatic cancer diagnosis and treatment around the world. Fox Chase researchers have studied the structure and function of proteins in pancreatic cysts, which have the potential to develop into cancer. This research may help identify better diagnostic tests that will help doctors assess likelihood of a patient's pancreatic cyst becoming cancerous and determine which patients would benefit from surgical removal of the cyst.

In addition to the latest treatments for advanced pancreatic cancer, Fox Chase is actively developing and evaluating a number of new therapies, often before they are available anywhere else. We encourage eligible patients to participate in clinical trials that are available and appropriate for their stage and type of pancreatic cancer.
