New PC treatment on the horizon


Recommended Posts

Hi all

Some interesting and promising news published today! Researchers at MIT have spent the last 3 years developing an implantable device for targeting PC tumours with chemotherapy, and results so far are encouraging. Currently it's only been tested in mice, but human trials are planned soon. The press release is at this link:

Dear Wife & Mum,

Thank you so much for posting this link and sharing your research on the forum. I'm sure lots of forum members will be very interested in reading this, as I was!

This trial certainly does look interesting and very innovative! As you have mentioned, currently it has only been tested in the lab and may take a number of years before it can be tested in humans. However, this is still a really important step towards the development of a potentially new treatment delivery system for patients with cancer, so we will certainly be keeping any eye on its development!

Thanks again for posting,

Kindest regards,


Pancreatic Cancer Specialist Nurse
