Something has to change drastically. Supporting the body to beat pancreatic cancer itself, I think that is the future.

With the results of the study we hope to make a real difference for people with pancreatic cancer and other difficult-to-treat tumors such as bladder, prostate and brain tumors. We expect a higher chance of survival and a higher quality of life because patients will again be able to participate in social life. In addition, the new personalized therapy is expected to be significantly cheaper than the traditional treatments that patients now have to undergo.
For patients, the most visible aspect is the clinic that has now been opened for pancreatic cancer patients; a day treatment and outpatient clinic where patients can take part in clinical trials with immunotherapy, among other things. They are supervised by a specially recruited research nurse.
