Healthy Living: Treating Pancreatic Cancer

Over the past few years, there’s been increased awareness of pancreatic cancer with the deaths of actor Patrick Swayze and Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

Right now, jeopardy host Alex Trebek is fighting a public battle with the disease.

In Healthy Living, Courtney Hunter explains how researchers are testing a revolutionary new way to deliver chemotherapy that is giving patients hope by extending lives.

The trial for the RenovoCath is called TIGeR-PaC.

Researchers are enrolling 300 patients at 30 sites in the U.S. through the end of 2021.

So far, the trial has shown to extend the lives of pancreatic patients from 14 months to 26 months.
