More than 40,000 people in the U. S. will be diagnosed with
Pancreatic Cancer each year.
The five-year survival rate of Pancreatic Cancer is only
4 to 6%. Pancreatic Cancer takes the lives of 38,000 loved ones annually.
Israel Cancer Association USA-funded scientists are leading
the way to find a cure for pancreatic cancer - the fourth
leading cause of cancer deaths after lung, colon and breast
cancer. Israel's brilliant scientists are turning today's
groundbreaking discoveries into tomorrow's cancer
ICA USA Funded Researcher
Dr. Ido Wolf,
Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center
Focus on Pancreatic Cancer:
Israel Cancer Association USA funded scientist Ido Wolf
continues making inroads in his study of the protein Klotho,
which may slow down Pancreatic Cancer.
Klotho is fittingly named after the Three Fates in Greek
mythology, who spun thread to keep people alive.
Dr. Wolf, as a result of a previous study funded by Nancy
and Peter Brown, announced in 2011 that in laboratory tests
the protein Klotho has been shown to slow the spreading of
the cancer, and actually caused tumors to shrink. The Browns
are funding a second two-year cancer research fellowship
grant for Dr. Wolf's continued study of this promising
discovery, that may lead to tomorrow's treatments for
