SEARCHING FOR BETTER THERAPIES
Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer, and the life sciences industry is constantly striving to find more effective therapies with less side effects. Ultimately, we all hope to one day find a cure.
According to the American Cancer Society, “This year, about 609,640 Americans are expected to die of cancer – that’s more than 1,670 people a day. Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the US, exceeded only by heart disease.”
Furthermore, the risk of developing cancer in one’s lifetime is 40.14% for males and 38.70% for females. With whopping numbers like that, there is no time to waste in advancing preventative, diagnostic, and therapeutic efforts.
Due to these high cancer statistics, there is also an enormous economic impact. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality estimates that the total of all health care costs for cancer in the US in 2015 was $80.2 billion.
