Alex Ford, Chief Executive of Pancreatic Cancer UK, comments on research into a protein that could be used to treat the effects of alcohol on the pancreas:

"New research into the protective benefits of the protein, calmodulin, on the pancreas when used to fight the toxic effects of alcohol, is potentially promising for pancreatic cancer patients. Currently, there is very little understanding of what causes pancreatic cancer and patients' treatment options are extremely limited - so any advances in our understanding of how to prevent and treat the disease are welcomed"
