Just heard on FOX news about this PEGPH20 enzyme that studies have shown to improve delivery of chemo drugs into pancreatic tumors by expanding blood vessels.  I Googled it, and the information out there looks very promising.   It is currently in phases 1B & 2 trials right now in Seattle, WA and New Hyde Park, NY.  Was wondering if by any chance, anyone here on this forum is (or has a loved one) currently particpating in this trial?
