Last year in the UK over 60,000 cancer patients enrolled on clinical trials aimed at improving cancer treatments and making them available to all.
A study of GDC-0449 before surgery for pancreatic cancer (HIPPoS)
More about this trial
Researchers were trying to find out more about a new drug called GDC-0449. We know from laboratory research that it can block a type of chemical signalling between cells which may affect the growth of pancreatic cancer.
The aims of the study were to
- See the effect GDC-0449 has on pancreatic cancer and the surrounding healthy tissue
- Learn more about the side effects
Summary of results
This study closed early due to a lack of patients.
