Gold coin donations from a Coca-Cola Amatil fundraiser helped raise in excess of $10,500 for Avner’s Pancreatic Cancer Foundation. This recent fundraiser, held over several weeks, at Woolworths Kellyville store, offered thirsty, caffeine deprived customers a cup of Grinders Coffee in return for a gold coin donation.

In exciting developments, three patients have now joined the PAN 1 study. The PAN 1 study aim is to prospectively evaluate hENT1 as a predictive biomarker of benefit from gemcitabine treatment in advanced Pancreatic Cancer. In lay English, this means researchers at the AGITG will test whether hENT1 can show whether an individual patient with advanced Pancreatic Cancer will get benefit from the standard Pancreatic Cancer chemotherapy drug Gemcitabine or not.
