This year, pancreatic cancer will become the third leading cause of cancer related death in the EU, with mortality rates set to surpass breast cancer. Where survival rates for the majority of cancers have improved over the past 40 years, the outlook for pancreatic cancer hasn’t changed.
It’s time to give Pancreatic Cancer a voice.
Despite appalling patient outcomes, pancreatic cancer receives less than 2% of overall cancer research funding across Europe. UEG are calling on the EU and its Member States to fund more research into pancreatic cancer. With increased research, we can identify the tools for early patient diagnosis and help save lives.
