Diane Simeone, MD, director of the Pancreatic Cancer Center and associate director of Translational Research at NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, discusses the current state of the pancreatic cancer treatment paradigm. She says it is a very exciting time for this field as there is a large body of researchers now involved.

Simeone says that part of this new interest in the field potentially stems from the fact that there hasn’t been a lot of change in the field for a while. There is also more funding in this field while people are increasingly becoming more aware of the rising incidences of pancreatic cancer.

There is a great amount of therapies available to oncologists when treating patients with pancreatic cancer. From a research standpoint, Simeone says, it is important to focus on translating the key findings to make a difference in patients’ lives. This is the primary focus right now.
