Leading the Way to a Cure Pancreatic cancer research is moving faster than ever before, and there has never been a more hopeful time for patients. Our lustgarten-funded researchers are at the forefront of the most promising breakthroughs changing patients’ lives and enabling some patients to not only live longer, but to also live better. To accomplish these breakthroughs, we opened three new dedicated pancreatic cancer research laboratories, led by world-renowned physician researchers who strive to improve patient outcomes. Additionally, we named David Tuveson, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Cancer Center and formerly the Foundation’s Research Director, as Chief Scientist to the Foundation. To add to our scientific leadership, we appointed Elizabeth Jaffee, M.D., Deputy Director at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins and Associate Director of the Bloomberg-Kimmel Institute for Immunotherapy, and an internationally renowned cancer immunologist, as Chief Medical Advisor. Additionally, we have made substantial advancements in personalized medicine, where therapy is tailored to the individual patient based on his/her genetics and tumor characteristics, and have used organoids to determine which treatment(s) a patient is most likely to respond to, rather than employing a one-size-fits-all treatment approach. We have also expanded our partnership with Stand Up To Cancer through the Pancreatic Cancer Collective, jointly funding groundbreaking studies, research on pancreatic cancer in families and grants focusing on discovering potential new treatments. We are supporting several early detection initiatives as well, utilizing artificial intelligence to diagnose the disease at an earlier, curable stage and developing an early detection blood test.

Expanding Our

Scientific Leadership We have developed a focused, dynamic research strategy to identify critical areas of research that, when successfully completed, will bring us more quickly to a cure. This strategy centers around understanding the biology of the disease; identifying early detection techniques, utilizing imaging/scans and studying hereditary factors to aid in diagnosis; and expanding our treatment approaches to encompass genetic research, metabolism studies, drug development, drug delivery, immunotherapy and clinical trials. We have expanded our collaborations with two world-renowned physician scientists, Dr. David Tuveson and Dr. Elizabeth Jaffee, to offer strategic direction on our research program. They also play an integral role in navigating the process of moving innovative discoveries from the laboratory into multi-center clinical trials across the country. Both provide significant expertise in pancreatic cancer research and merge their laboratory and clinical research, enabling them to bring new options to patients more rapidly.

In 2018, we appointed Dr. Tuveson as Chief Scientist. In this position, he directs the Foundation’s scientific and research functions. Dr. Tuveson had previously served as the Foundation’s Research Director and has played a transformative role in pancreatic cancer research, generating the first genetically engineered mouse model for pancreatic cancer, a model which is now used throughout the scientific community to test new therapies for pancreatic cancer.

In 2019, we appointed Dr. Elizabeth Jaffee as Chief Medical Advisor. Dr. Jaffee is an internationally recognized expert in cancer immunology, with specific expertise in preclinical and early clinical development of immunotherapies for pancreatic cancer. She is one of the world’s preeminent scholars and scientists working on vaccines and immunotherapy for pancreatic cancer treatment. In her Lustgarten-funded laboratory at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Jaffee is spearheading a new program focused on bringing personalized immunotherapy treatment options to patients. Dr. Jaffee is also focusing on expanding the Foundation’s clinical research program to translate Foundation-sponsored scientific findings for patient benefits; utilizing personalized medicine approaches and new therapies for patients; establishing Lustgarten Foundation Centers of Pancreatic Cancer Clinical Excellence; and developing a national pancreatic cancer database integrating data from sponsored clinical and preclinical trials.

Pioneering Innovations in Personalized Medicine and Early Detection

To further our mission of curing pancreatic cancer, we have taken bold steps to ensure many more patients become survivors. We are focusing on our personalized medicine program, recognizing the importance of treating each individual patient instead of applying a one-sizefits-all treatment strategy. To complement our personalized medicine research, we are moving forward with an innovative early detection initiative, bringing together the best and brightest minds in science and technology to capitalize on artificial intelligence to help detect pancreatic cancer earlier, when it is more treatable and when more patients are eligible for surgery.

Applying a Personalized Medicine Approach

Through Organoids Dr. Tuveson and his team at the Foundation’s dedicated laboratory at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory published their promising research findings in Cancer Discovery demonstrating patient-derived organoids—threedimensional cell culture systems which reproduce a patient’s tumor to test it repeatedly with different drugs—can quickly and accurately predict how patients with pancreatic cancer respond to a variety of treatments, facilitating a personalized medicine approach. Organoids can be derived from patients with even very advanced pancreatic cancer using tiny biopsies and can grow on average in just four weeks. Researchers demonstrated organoids can provide an effective personalized medicine “pharmacotyping,” or drugtesting, pipeline. To do this, the organoid from the patient’s cancer was cultured and then used to test all possible standard of care chemotherapy regimens. Since many of the organoids that did not respond well to chemotherapy were sensitive to a variety of investigational drugs, patients whose tumors lacked specific sensitivity signatures might instead more quickly be treated with experimental agents.

This pivotal research led to the creation of the Lustgartenfunded PASS-01 (Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma Signature Stratification) for treatment trial, which will open with 150 Stage IV metastatic pancreatic cancer patients. The Foundation is conducting this trial in collaboration with Stand Up To Cancer and Pancreatic Cancer Canada. The goal is to use organoids to select the correct first-line standard of care treatment (gemcitabine and Abraxane combination, or modified FOLFIRInOX) and determine how organoids can lead to tailor-made therapies for metastatic pancreatic cancer patients who do not respond to either standard of care treatment.

Organoids: Providing a New Direction in Treatment

In 2017, mechanical engineer and MIT’s Director of Utilities, Ken Packard PE, then 52, of Hamilton, Massachusetts, was on vacation in Maine with his wife Amanda and then 12-year-old daughter Sophie when he noticed he had a swollen lymph node. Wasting no time, he returned to Massachusetts to see his doctor and underwent testing that led to a life-changing, devastating diagnosis: Stage IV pancreatic cancer. As someone who had always been active and healthy, and who had no family history of the disease, he felt completely blindsided, but vowed to turn his grief over the diagnosis into immediate action. Ken sought treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, where he remains under the care of James Cleary, M.D., Ph.D. Dr. Cleary started Ken on firstline treatment with gemcitabine and Abraxane, a standard of care chemotherapy regimen. When Ken began gemcitabine/Abraxane, his platelet count was very low, and there was concern he could not receive chemotherapy. Dr. Cleary credits Ken’s engineering background with helping him devise a strategy to work around the low platelet count. Fortunately, using this creative dosing strategy, Ken was able to withstand the gemcitabine/Abraxane regimen despite the low platelets. By the end of 2018, after 15 months of grueling chemotherapy, his tumor had decreased by onethird, and he received radiation to shrink it even further. During a three-month break from treatment, however, Ken’s tumor markers began to rise. After trying a different chemotherapy regimen that was ineffective, he resumed treatment with gemcitabine and Abraxane in July 2019, and his pain has resolved and his tumor markers are now approaching the normal range.

Dr. Cleary, who the Lustgarten Foundation funds through the Pancreatic Cancer Collective, our partnership with Stand Up To Cancer, recognizes that one day, the gemcitabine/Abraxane combination may no longer be effective for treating Ken’s cancer. Dr. Cleary is so determined to identify the next treatment option with the greatest chance of fighting the disease because patients with advanced disease— like Ken—don’t have time to waste on therapies that are unlikely to benefit them. He is conducting groundbreaking research on personalized medicine using an organoid—a three-dimensional cell culture system that reproduces a patient’s tumor in the lab to test it repeatedly with different drugs.

Through this research, Dr. Andrew Aguirre’s lab at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is growing an organoid from a biopsy taken from Ken’s liver metastasis and is testing different therapies on it, as research suggests a treatment that works on a patient’s organoid is likely to work on a patient’s tumor. Currently, one of the therapies he is testing on the organoid is a novel therapy directed against KRAS mutated tumors. The therapeutic strategy combines the trametinib MEK inhibitor and an autophagy inhibitor hydroxychloroquine. This combination has shown promise for pancreatic cancer in the laboratory and there are several clinical trials being launched to evaluate this strategy. “We want to be as prepared as possible with the next treatment that could have a chance of being effective in shrinking Ken’s tumors and preventing further metastases,” said Dr. Cleary. “By using organoids, we are personalizing treatment so we can give Ken the best chance of living longer with an excellent quality of life.”

While Dr. Cleary is committed to ensuring Ken has the best treatment plan in place, Ken is committed to keeping life as normal as possible and being a role model for Sophie, taking this significant challenge and facing it head-on with grace, determination and strength. With the love and support of Amanda and Sophie, his extended family, faith-based community, colleagues and gifted medical team, Ken is thankful he was able to celebrate an important milestone—his 30th wedding anniversary—last summer. “no one deserves to be plagued by pancreatic cancer, and we need to do whatever we can to fund more research that can impact lives,” said Ken. “The groundbreaking research Dr. Cleary and his colleagues are conducting—research made possible by the Lustgarten Foundation—is an important step forward in eradicating this disease. I’m so grateful to doctors like him who are taking innovative approaches to make sure patients like me are on the best treatments possible.”

Using Artificial Intelligence to Detect Pancreatic Cancer Earlier Dr. Elliot Fishman, in collaboration with his Johns Hopkins colleagues Dr. Alan yuille and Dr. Bert Vogelstein and other scientists from a broad range of disciplines, is focusing on artificial intelligence to detect pancreatic cancer earlier. They published promising results in the American Journal of Roentgenology demonstrating computers can be trained to recognize patterns in medical images to detect pancreatic tumors in CT scans, the most commonly used imaging test for the initial evaluation of suspected pancreatic cancer. In this study, all pancreatic cancer cases (60 out of 60) were accurately classified and differentiated from normal pancreases. Dr. Fishman’s research is part of the Foundation’s overall FELIX project (named for Harry Potter’s Felix Felicis, also called “Liquid Luck,” a magical potion that makes the drinker lucky) that focuses on developing new methods using artificial intelligence to detect smaller pancreatic tumors on CT scans. The approach is to carefully analyze thousands of scans by hand and use this information to teach the computers how to detect pancreatic tumors when they are very small and may be missed by a diagnostician, so diagnosis and subsequent treatment can be initiated sooner. next steps include gathering scans of tumors of less than one centimeter to train the computer to find tumors much smaller than current standards and to differentiate them from pancreatic cysts. The goal is to ensure information from the FELIX project is incorporated as standard imaging in MRI and CT scan machines.

CancerSEEK: Detecting Cancer Early Through a Single Blood Test CancerSEEK, designed by Lustgarten-funded researcher Dr. Bert Vogelstein and his team at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, can detect the early presence of multiple cancers, including pancreatic cancer, and can also identify the organ of origin of these cancers. Researchers have initiated a five-year study designed to optimize the CancerSEEK blood test. Through this study, they are following 10,000 women aged 65-75 with no prior history of cancer to determine if CancerSEEK identified the early presence of certain cancers. Additionally, the pancreatic and ovarian cancer portions of this blood test have been “Fast Tracked� by the FDA. The CancerSEEK research lays the foundation for a single blood screening test for multiple cancers that could be offered as part of routine medical checks and represents a significant step forward in how pancreatic cancer is diagnosed.

GENERATE: A BETTER FUTURE FOR FAMILIES AFFECTED BY PANCREATIC CANCER The gEnERATE (gEnetic Education, Risk Assessment, and TEsting) Study (generatestudy.org) is designed for people who have a close relative with pancreatic cancer caused by an inherited mutation in a gene, accounting for up to 10 percent of pancreatic cancer cases. The goal of this study is to improve genetic testing and cancer prevention in family members of pancreatic cancer patients with identified mutations. If a family member does have an inherited risk, there may be options for preventing cancer or detecting it early at a curable stage via frequent cancer screenings. Additionally, gEnERATE Study researchers have recently expanded their enrollment guidelines so participants will only need one first degree relative (parent, child or sibling), with or without a known mutation, to join the study. Participants go through online education about genetic testing; undergo genetic testing from home, at no cost, by mailing in a saliva sample; and complete four sets of questionnaires. Additionally, study enrollees can speak with a genetic counselor by phone before and after undergoing genetic testing. gEnERATE will follow the family members through innovative screening and interception programs led by other members of the Collective, including conducting the first in-human prevention trials in these individuals with a vaccine and studying the blood from the at-risk family members to identify new biomarkers of early pancreatic cancer that can strengthen the work of the CancerSEEK early detection blood test.

The GENERATE Study is being conducted by leading pancreatic cancer experts at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute; Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center; Mayo Clinic; MD Anderson Cancer Center; and UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, although participants do not have to be patients at any of these centers to participate in GENERATE.

AWARDED

The lustgarten Foundation and stand Up To Cancer have collaborated closely since 2012. To date, we have jointly funded more than 400 investigators from nearly 70 leading research centers in the United states and the United kingdom. By working together, we established 18 multi-institutional teams through 2019 that have planned, started or completed nearly 30 clinical trials, with an additional team established in 2020. In 2018, the Foundation and SU2C entered into a formal strategic partnership by establishing the Pancreatic Cancer Collective (the Collective) to accelerate research for pancreatic cancer patients who desperately need better treatments. The Collective is committed to attracting new collaborators; improving the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer using big data; finding new treatments for pancreatic cancer; and supporting the next generation of pancreatic cancer investigators. In 2018, the Collective awarded $7 million in firstround “new Therapies Challenge grants” to seven teams of top cancer researchers to explore novel pancreatic cancer treatments. The overall goal of this grant program is to bring new, cutting-edge treatments to pancreatic cancer patients, including seeking new uses for treatments developed or approved for other uses. Through the “new Therapies Challenge grants,” each team received up to

$1 million in initial funding. In early 2020, the second round of funding, up to $4 million over three years per team for clinical studies, was awarded to the most successful projects. The Collective has also awarded two $1 million grants for computational approaches using artificial intelligence, focusing on machines programmed to mimic human reasoning. The two teams are each pursuing a different approach to identifying individuals in the general population who are at high-risk for pancreatic cancer. One team is using molecular and genetic data taken from a variety of datasets to find new and accessible ways to identify high-risk individuals. The other team is focusing on the identification of high-risk individuals by applying machine learning analysis to real world data comprising radiological images, electronic medical records and information collected by physicians.

Establishing Dedicated Pancreatic Cancer

Research Laboratories Building on the success of the Foundation’s first dedicated pancreatic cancer research laboratory at Cold spring harbor laboratory, we established three additional dedicated pancreatic cancer laboratories in 2018–2019 at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (Boston), Johns hopkins (Baltimore) and massachusetts Institute of Technology (Boston). The opening of these facilities ushered in a new era of research progress and represented an initial $15 million investment over five years. Together, these laboratories position the Foundation as the only non-profit in the world to have four laboratories devoted to pancreatic cancer research, which means more resources, time and talent are being put toward this disease. The opening of these laboratories represents a pivotal achievement. At the time the Lustgarten Foundation was established in 1998, fewer than 15 researchers nationally were studying pancreatic cancer. Twenty-two years later, thousands of researchers are focused on pancreatic cancer and committed to changing patients’ lives, including nearly 100 researchers, lab technicians, project managers and other staff members working in our four dedicated laboratories.

There has never been a more exciting time in pancreatic cancer research. We are now taking our science into the clinic and impacting patient outcomes in real time. I want patients to know that we are making progress. –Dr. Tuveson

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory David Tuveson, M.D., Ph.D., our Chief Scientist and the Director of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Cancer Center, leads the dedicated Lustgarten Laboratory at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Dr. Tuveson’s lab, founded in 2012, demonstrated the significant research benefits of a facility focused exclusively on this disease and became the example upon which our three subsequent dedicated labs were based. Dr. Tuveson and his team are designing new models of pancreatic cancer and discovering novel therapeutic and diagnostic platforms to bring new options to patients more rapidly. Under Dr. Tuveson’s leadership, researchers in his laboratory are dissecting components of the tumor stroma (a physical barrier that surrounds the tumor, making it difficult for treatment to penetrate) and determining how they contribute to tumor growth and drug resistance. They are also examining the link between pancreatitis, a condition characterized by inflammation of the pancreas, and pancreatic cancer to better understand the factors that lead to pancreatitis progressing to pancreatic cancer.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Under the leadership of Brian Wolpin, M.D., MPH, Director of the Hale Family Research Center, the Lustgarten Laboratory at Dana-Farber is a critical hub for advancing research from the laboratory to the clinic (a process known as pancreatic cancer translational research), initiating scientifically-driven clinical trials and identifying new approaches to early detection. Dr. Wolpin and his team are also capitalizing on the large, multidisciplinary network of investigators working on pancreatic cancer at Dana-Farber, under the umbrella of the Hale Family Research Center. Together, Dr. Wolpin and his team are analyzing pancreatic cancer subtypes to understand mechanisms of drug resistance and the genetic drivers that determine each subtype. Additionally, they are identifying new blood-based imaging markers for asymptomatic patients and new models for risk prediction to facilitate earlier detection.

Led by Bert Vogelstein, M.D., one of the world’s most cited scientists and Director of the Ludwig Center at The Johns Hopkins Medical School and Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Lustgarten Laboratory at Johns Hopkins is leveraging its expertise in early detection to intercept pancreatic cancer at an earlier stage, when patients may be surgical candidates, and is developing novel therapeutic approaches to treat pancreatic cancer based on genetic alterations. In addition to the groundbreaking work in developing a blood test for the early detection of pancreatic cancer (see CancerSEEK story on page 12), Dr. Vogelstein and his team are also investigating how PanIns, precursors to pancreatic cancer, develop. In parallel, Dr. Vogelstein’s team has developed a Comprehensive Cyst (CompCyst) test, which combines clinical, radiological, genetic and protein marker information to distinguish if pancreatic cysts, which can be common within the general population, can develop into pancreatic cancer or remain as benign cysts.

Led by Tyler Jacks, Ph.D., Director of MIT’s Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, the Lustgarten Laboratory at MIT is leveraging its unparalleled expertise in cancer biology and engineering to advance pancreatic cancer research. Researchers are also examining the genetic events contributing to the development of pancreatic cancer and studying the immune responses to the disease using molecular profiling to identify tumor mutations. Additionally, Dr. Jacks and his team are exploring ways to attack KRAS, the most frequently mutated gene in pancreatic cancer. They are creating better models that closely resemble the development of pancreatic cancer to aid in the understanding of the disease. They are using cell profiling technologies to identify new targets for intervention as well.

We are pleased to announce that as of January 16, 2020, Andrew Lustgarten has assumed the role of Chairman of the Lustgarten Foundation’s Board of Directors. Mr. Lustgarten, the son of the Foundation’s co-founder Marc Lustgarten, has served on the Board since 2001. The Foundation is also pleased to announce that James L. Dolan and Adam Silver have been appointed Vice Chairmen of the Board. Dr. Vizza led the Lustgarten Foundation since its inception in 1998, first as President and CEO, then as Vice Chairman and finally as Executive Chairman. Twenty-two years later, Dr. Vizza decided that with the initiation of the Foundation’s new five-year strategic plan, now was the right time to pass the baton to Mr. Lustgarten, whose strategic vision will ensure the Foundation continues to grow and fulfill its mission. Dr. Vizza will remain on the Board as Chairman Emeritus.
