A Focused Mission and Valued Partnership After Cablevision Systems Corporation and The Madison Square Garden Company Executive Marc Lustgarten was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 1998, he and Cablevision Chairman Charles Dolan and Chief Executive Officer James Dolan established The Lustgarten Foundation. Today, The Lustgarten Foundation is America’s largest private funder of pancreatic cancer research. Our mission is to advance the scientific and medical research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of pancreatic cancer by:
• Increasing funding and support of research into the biological mechanisms and clinical strategies related to diagnosis, treatment and prevention
• Facilitating and enhancing the dialogue among members of the medical and scientific communities about basic and clinical research efforts
• Heightening public awareness of pancreatic cancer diagnosis, treatment, and prevention and providing informational support for patients, their families, and friends
goes directly to pancreatic cancer research
Since the Foundation’s inception, Cablevision has continued to be a valued partner, from initiating our awardwinning curePC campaign, which leverages Cablevision’s media and telecommunications assets to increase awareness, to providing underwriting support for the Foundation’s administrative expenses so that 100 percent of every dollar donated to the Foundation goes directly to pancreatic cancer research.
Dear Friends, We are pleased to share with you our 2014 annual report, which showcases our commitment to advancing the scientific and medical research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of pancreatic cancer. When The Lustgarten Foundation was founded in 1998, very little was known about pancreatic cancer and the field of pancreatic cancer research was largely ignored, with only a handful of scientists working part-time in projects peripherally relevant to the disease. Today that has changed. More than 1,000 researchers are working to find a cure, and we have supported in excess of 200 research projects at more than 60 institutions worldwide that have made promising advancements in research. Also, thanks to the generosity of our loyal donors and our valued partnership with Cablevision Systems Corporation, The Lustgarten Foundation’s new commitments to pancreatic cancer research contributions approached $35 million in 2014, bringing our total commitment to $110 million since inception. With only two percent of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) funding directed at the nation’s fourth-leading cause of cancer deaths, the work supported by The Lustgarten Foundation has played a critical role in understanding pancreatic cancer and in promoting discoveries that have led to new therapies. On the pages that follow, we have highlighted the research we have funded with your support, such as our early detection efforts to develop a blood test to detect DNA mutations commonly seen in pancreatic cancer patients; innovative approaches within the field of immunotherapy, including treatments promoting the activation of tumorkilling T cells in the body; and new methods of drug delivery to ensure medication reaches the pancreatic tumor. We report on the ongoing outstanding work conducted at The Lustgarten Foundation Pancreatic Cancer Research Laboratory at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory by our first Distinguished Scholar, The Lustgarten Foundation’s Research Director Dr. David Tuveson. Other scientists selected as Distinguished Scholars who received funding this year for their groundbreaking research include: Dr. Ronald Evans, Salk Institute for Biological Studies; Dr. Douglas Fearon, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Weill Cornell Medical College; and Dr. Bert Vogelstein, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Thirteen additional deserving Research Investigators were awarded grants this year, based on their work in one of our targeted research areas including risk factors, early detection, discovery of therapeutic targets, drug development, drug delivery, and clinical trials. We also celebrate our expanding relationship with Stand Up To Cancer, which now extends to the co-funding of another Pancreatic Cancer Dream Team to develop new therapies leveraging the promising field of immunology. We wish to express our gratitude to our many friends – our generous supporters, volunteers, Board of Directors, and Scientific Advisory Board. As a result of your dedication, we once again reached an all-time fundraising high of more than $14 million in 2014, and with the support of Cablevision, 100 percent of every dollar donated to The Lustgarten Foundation goes directly to pancreatic cancer research. In honor of all of the members of our patient community and their loved ones, we will continue to remain steadfast in our mission and will share more news about our continued efforts throughout the coming year. Sincerely,
Together, with the support of Cablevision and the help of our loyal donors and volunteers, we will change the outcome for those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

2014 ANNUAL REPORT
RESEARCH Since The Lustgarten Foundation was founded, the scientific research we have invested in has produced a number of significant advances, but our work is not done. Nearly 49,000 Americans will be diagnosed this year, and more than 40,000 will die from pancreatic cancer. In fact, the overall five-year survival rate for the disease is just 7 percent. The only way to provide hope for patients and their families and to reach our ultimate goal of finding a cure for pancreatic cancer is through scientific research. To fulfill this mission, we assembled a Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) comprised of leading scientists and clinicians in the field of cancer research and then adopted a Focused Research Strategy and a Research Map to identify critical areas of research that when successfully completed, will bring us more
quickly to a cure. Our Research Map encompasses the key areas of early detection and risk factors, improvements in drug delivery, new drug development, and clinical trials. The Foundation invites leading scientists to design a research proposal that addresses one of these key areas of research. The competitive grants are reviewed by our SAB and then the best proposals receive funding. In that way, we focus on funding what we deem as “important” research, rather than merely “interesting” research. We thank you for your continued support in this mission and share more research program details on the pages that follow.

The Lustgarten Foundation’s dedicated Pancreatic Cancer Research Laboratory is housed at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, the world-renowned cancer research institution on the north shore of Long Island, and is led by our first Distinguished Scholar David Tuveson, M.D., Ph.D. Dr. Tuveson also serves as the Director of Research for The Lustgarten Foundation and has an appointment at
an “organoid,” which allows pancreatic cancer to be grown from human tissue. This newly innovative model provides researchers with the means to better understand the disease outside of the human and inside the laboratory. Published in the prestigious journal Cell and hailed as a breakthrough for pancreatic cancer, this work offers the potential to change the way pancreatic cancer translational research is done in the lab and in the clinic. The development of the organoid system is a monumental step forward in pancreatic cancer research because it brings the laboratory closer to the clinic, as it allows for different therapies to be tested indefinitely on a patient’s organoid in the laboratory before they are administered to him or her in the clinic. Because the organoid is made from a patient’s tumor, ideally, an effective therapy that kills the organoid should kill the patient’s tumor. This translational technology offers the hope of personalized cancer treatments for patients in the future. Because the organoid technology is being used successfully in pancreatic cancer, as well as other cancers, there is much interest from laboratories across the country to incorporate pancreatic organoids into their research program. Dr. Tuveson and his team have now made the pancreatic organoid

As a physician-scientist, Dr. Tuveson merges his laboratory research with his clinical research, bringing new options to patients more rapidly. Dr. Tuveson leads a team of researchers and clinical fellows at The Lustgarten Foundation dedicated laboratory, and is continuing to make strides in developing better therapies to more effectively combat pancreatic cancer. Early in his career, Dr. Tuveson and his team generated the first mouse model for human pancreatic cancer, which for the first time allowed researchers to study pancreatic cancer in a living organism. He has since used this mouse model to make major discoveries. One significant breakthrough was his discovery that targeting the stroma, a physical barrier that surrounds the tumor, can increase the amount of chemotherapy that can enter the tumor and kill the pancreatic cancer cells. One of these drugs is now being used in multiple clinical trials across the country. In line with his research goal to improve the way we study pancreatic cancer, Dr. Tuveson developed a threedimensional cell culture system, called

Salk Institute for Biological Studies
Ronald M. Evans, Ph.D.
In 2014, The Lustgarten Foundation announced the appointment of three scientists as part of our Distinguished Scholars program. Through this program, world-class scientists who have led today’s most exciting research breakthroughs are recruited to apply their expertise to pancreatic cancer research.
“The history of medicine is that once one understands the disease, it is only a matter of time before that disease is conquered…I am absolutely confident that there will be progress.” — Bert Vogelstein, M.D.
“Progress in the science of pancreatic cancer places us at the precipice of a new era in both the understanding and treatment of the disease. The excitement is palpable.” — Ronald M. Evans, Ph.D.
Bert Vogelstein, M.D. Dr. Vogelstein is a Howard Hughes Investigator, Clayton Professor of Oncology and Pathology, and Director of the Ludwig Center for Cancer Genetics and Therapeutics at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Vogelstein has received numerous awards for his research, most notably the Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences in 2013 and the Warren Triennial Prize in 2014.
diagnosis. They investigated the genetic makeup of pancreatic metastases and their relationship to the original tumor in the pancreas. Published in the prestigious journal Nature, this seminal research resulted in the surprising discovery that patients often have pancreatic tumors for 10-15 years before they metastasize, revealing a huge diagnostic window for early detection.
Dr. Vogelstein’s pioneering studies of the genetic causes of human cancer have placed him among the most influential scientists in the world. The Foundation initially recruited Dr. Vogelstein to serve as the Principal Investigator of The Lustgarten Foundation’s Pancreatic Cancer Genome Project. Considered a turning point in pancreatic cancer research,
Now, Dr. Vogelstein is leading our early detection initiative to exploit this diagnostic window. To do this, he is conducting an international clinical trial to identify the early presence of pancreatic cancer with a simple blood test. Preliminary results of this test, published early in 2014 in Science Translational Medicine, have shown the ability to detect DNA mutations commonly seen in pancreas cancer in the blood of more than 75 percent of patients with advanced cancer and 48 percent of patients with early stage disease. Dr. Vogelstein and his team continue to look to improve the sensitivity of this test so that it can become the first blood test used routinely, similar to the PSA test for prostate cancer.
early detection Dr. Vogelstein and his team were the first to sequence the genetic makeup of pancreatic cancer. Follow-up from this landmark research has led to developing a pancreatic cancerspecific early detection test, screening of families with a history of pancreatic cancer, and the design of targeted therapies against cancer-causing mutations. Sequencing the pancreatic cancer genome led Dr. Vogelstein and his colleague, Dr. Christine Iacubuzio-Donahue, to investigate how long it takes for a tumor in the pancreas to metastasize in hopes of finding a window of opportunity for early 6
THE LUSTGARTEN FOUNDATION
In addition, Dr. Vogelstein will continue conducting a clinical trial to distinguish benign cysts from potentially cancerous ones. By developing a dependable test, difficult surgery could be avoided in patients with benign cysts, while patients with potentially malignant cysts (about 20 percent) could benefit from early surgical intervention.
vitamin D trials
Dr. Evans’ project aims to better understand the factors that dictate the relationship between pancreatic cancer cells and the cells living in the tumor that surrounds the stroma. Dr. Evans has discovered that treating mice with a synthetic derivative of vitamin D, called paricalcitol, can inactivate their pancreatic stromal cells, enabling medication to directly reach the pancreatic tumor. When combined with chemotherapy, this treatment showed a 57 percent increase in lifespan compared to chemotherapy alone. This promising discovery was published in the prestigious journal Cell. Dr. Evans is currently expanding these studies by conducting clinical trials of paricalcitol in pancreatic cancer patients across the country.
Douglas T. Fearon, M.D. Dr. Fearon is an internationally known expert in the field of immunology who holds a joint position at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Weill Cornell Medical College. He has been widely recognized for his work, including his election as a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1999 and a member of the United States National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Fearon’s research has expanded our understanding of the immune system, specifically how it protects us and how it can fail. His more recent work has focused on the intersection of cancer and the immune system.
The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
Selected by The Lustgarten Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), each grantee receives significant funding over five years, enabling these scientists to pursue high-risk high-reward science, dedicate more of their time and focus to pancreatic cancer research, and accelerate a path to a cure. We are pleased to highlight the work of our 2014 Distinguished Scholars, Bert Vogelstein, M.D., Ronald M. Evans, Ph.D. and Douglas T. Fearon, M.D.
Dr. Evans is a Howard Hughes Investigator, March of Dimes Chair in Developmental and Molecular Biology, and a Professor and Director of the Gene Expression Laboratory at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. Dr. Evans has received numerous awards for his research, most notably the Albert Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research in 2004 and the Wolf Prize in Medicine in 2012. Dr. Evans is an expert on hormone biology and how hormones communicate signals in the body. Several of the hormone signals Dr. Evans discovered are primary targets in the treatment of breast cancer, prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer and leukemia, as well as osteoporosis and asthma.

Dr. Fearon has shown that pancreatic cancer cells specifically suppress our immune system and make it difficult for cancer immunotherapy drugs to effectively kill them. His research has demonstrated that treating mice with AMD3100 (also known as Plerixafor) in combination with another immunealtering drug promoted the activation of tumor-killing T cells and effectively shrank their pancreatic tumors. Dr. Fearon and his team are conducting clinical trials to test this new drug combination in pancreatic cancer patients, as well as treating pancreatic cancer by enabling the body’s own immune system to attack and kill cancer cells.
own defenses to attack cancer, this approach has the potential to greatly improve treatment of tumors.” — Douglas T. Fearon, M.D. 2014 ANNUAL REPORT
Research Investigators In 2014, The Lustgarten Foundation funded 13 prominent scientists based at top institutions across the United States, through our newly launched Research Investigator program. The Research Investigator award recipients complement a research portfolio of more than 200 projects conducted since inception. Researchers were nominated by either the director of one of the 68 National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated cancer centers nationwide or members of the Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Board. The program awards three-year grants of up to $1.5 million each for studies that reflect our Focused Research Strategy.
Risk Factors And Early Detection
detection studies this year, Hidde Ploegh, Ph.D.’s (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) study aims to design an innovative, noninvasive imaging technique for early diagnosis and disease monitoring. Also, Diane Simeone, M.D. (University of Michigan) is testing a novel approach for indicators of cancer in a patient’s blood sample. Identifying risk factors and creating noninvasive tests will provide patients with the opportunity to be regularly screened and potentially find the pancreatic cancer in its earliest and most treatable stages.
In 2014, The Lustgarten Foundation expanded our fruitful collaboration with Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and announced the joint funding of a second pancreatic cancer research Dream Team, in conjunction with the Fox Family Cancer Research Funding Trust. The SU2CLustgarten Foundation Pancreatic Cancer Convergence Dream Team Translational Research Grant will provide $8 million in funding over three years for an innovative project titled, “Transforming Pancreatic Cancer to a Treatable Disease,” which aims to develop new therapies using patients’ own immune cells to treat their cancers. They will conduct combination clinical trials in patients which will focus on novel immune-suppressive pathways within the tumor.
