Date:2/27/2014

ALEXANDRIA, Va. February 27, 2014 A panel of leading health, economics and policy experts today discussed the prospects for a future where cancers are rendered manageable or even eradicated and the variables affecting progress toward that goal so that cancer patients are able to lead normal, productive lives and thus be "free from" their cancers.

By supporting a positive regulatory and legislative environment and working toward innovative solutions for complex healthcare challenges, policy makers can help combat devastating diseases like cancers.

"While medical innovation has driven extraordinary progress against cancer in the U.S. and peer nations, we know that globally, cancer cases and death rates are rising. And even in the U.S., the incidence of some cancers, including pancreatic cancer, is rising," said Mary Woolley, president and CEO, Research!America. "We need to work together to address these alarming trends, and commit to overcoming the barriers to achieving a world free from cancers. Ensuring that U.S. policymakers sustain a policy environment conducive to rapid-pace medical innovation is crucial."

The panel addressed the role of medical innovation, not only in the fi
