Stepping Up for Pancreatic Cancer Research

Longtime supporter of the GI Cancer Institute, Specialised Therapeutics (ST) is Stepping Up and Stepping Out for pancreatic cancer research.

This November, a team from ST will take part in a Step-a-thon Challenge and track daily steps to raise awareness and funds for further research into pancreatic cancer – and help improve survival rates.

Their short term goal is to raise $5,000. Long term, they want to make a difference!

All funds raised from the Step-a-thon Challenge will support the GI Cancer Institute’s vital research into new treatments for digestive cancers.

Specialised Therapeutics has a track record of supporting pancreatic cancer research and clinical trials. They have sponsored the GI Cancer Institute’s New Concepts Symposium at the Annual Scientific Meeting for the last six years.

At last year’s Symposium, the concept that won the Best New Concept Award was Neo-IMPACT – a study that the GI Cancer Institute is now seeking funding for, as it has potential to change outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients by bringing immunotherapy to the beginning of treatment.

Funds raised by the ST walking team will be directed to the Neo-IMPACT study.

Speaking about Specialised Therapeutics’ support of the GI Cancer Institute, Specialised Therapeutics Australia CEO Carlo Montagner said: “Every scientific breakthrough begins with a single idea. New concepts are the first step in changing patient outcomes. We are delighted an ST team is continuing with our effort to change outcomes.”

We are so grateful to Specialised Therapeutics for their continued support.
