Cancer Institute funds blood test for early pancreatic cancer detection

December 12, 2017

The National Cancer Institute’s Pancreatic Cancer Detection Consortium has awarded a $5.13 million grant to researchers from Baylor Scott & White Research Institute and the Translational Genomics Research Institute, which are developing a blood test for early detection of pancreatic cancer.

The availability of such a “non-invasive, rapid, accurate and inexpensive blood test” could “profoundly transform early detection of pancreatic cancer,” which is often not detected until late in the disease process, and is currently the third-leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S., according to a press release.
