Health Talks: Clinical trial provides novel therapy for pancreatic cancer

A new clinical trial at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute provides novel therapy for patients with pancreatic cancer completely by telehealth. Medical oncologist Sameek Roychowdhury, MD, PhD, explains the clinical trial that’s designed for patients with metastatic or stage four pancreas cancer, what is involved in the study and how the process works via telehealth.

The study is unique because it allows patients with pancreatic cancer to be treated wherever they are in the United States, without ever having to travel to The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.

Watch the full Health Talks video above to learn more about this innovative clinical trial and how, in the future, Ohio State will be able to apply the same concept to patients suffering from other types of cancer.
