i know some people have had difficulty opening this link, if you do Google Ted Talk Laura Indolfi and you should be able to watch. It is well worth it.

Hi Julia, thanks for posting about this TED talk. This new treatment is the same one that's discussed in the Treatments forum here: http://forum.pancreaticcancer.org.uk/vi ... f=2&t=1753. I agree, it looks v exciting!

It's been a lousy month for PC drug trials (a couple of Phase 3 trials have failed) so it's wonderful to see that there are other promising new treatments on the horizon.

W&M xx

Thanks W&M, missed that! Targeted treatment, what could make more sense?! Let's hope its development and use is sooner rather than later x
