Pancreatic Cancer





Disease Population

The number of new cases of pancreatic cancer was 12.6 per 100,000 men and women per year. The number of deaths was 10.9 per 100,000 men and women per year. These rates are age-adjusted and based on 2011-2015 cases and deaths.
Approximately 1.6 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at some point during their lifetime, based on 2013-2015 data.
In 2015, there were an estimated 68,615 people living with pancreatic cancer in the United States[1]. AbGn-107 binds to approximately 50% of pancreatic tumors.

About Pancreatic Cancer
Pancreatic cancer arises when cells in the pancreas begin to multiply out of control and form a mass. It is one of the hardest cancers to treat with a five-year relative survival rate in the single digits, at just 5-8%. It has the worst survival rate of any major cancer [2, 3].

Pancreatic cancer is hard to catch early. This is because there are no specific, cost-effective screening tests that can easily and reliably identify it in people who have no symptoms. This means it is often not found until later stages when the cancer can no longer be removed with surgery and has spread from the pancreas to other parts of the body.
