Pancreatic cancer clinical trials are underway at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare. The center is a primary clinical research site for the Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C) Dream Team pancreatic cancer research project. Daniel Von Hoff, MD, chief scientific officer at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare and physician-in-chief at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), is co-leader of the Stand Up to Cancer pancreatic cancer Dream Team. Ramesh Ramanathan, MD is the medical director at Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center Clinical Trials. "Cutting Off the Fuel Supply, A New Approach to the Treatment of Pancreatic Cancer" clinical trials include: • Using a drug to break through the tough coating surrounding the cancer so a second drug can kill the cancer cells. This combination is showing positive preliminary results in actually shrinking tumors. • Another effort is examining a tumor's molecular profile using state-of-the art molecular profiling techniques to personalize treatment for individual patients. Cancer patients travel from across Arizona, the United States and beyond for treatment at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare. The center opened in 2001 as the first major cancer center in greater Phoenix to offer comprehensive cancer research, diagnosis, treatment, prevention and support services in a single location.
