  • The public's cancer IQ is rising, but myths persist. They recognize cancer progress, but want faster results. They have a high interest in clinical trial participation and sharing results. Still, tough questions and concerns remain, such as how much money should be spent on cancer treatment for an extra year of life and who should pay for it.
  • This survey of 4,341 individuals in the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom was commissioned by Lilly Oncology and conducted by GfK, one of the world's leading research companies.
  • PACE, a Lilly Oncology initiative, is an emerging global network of collaborations between industry and other sectors intended to improve public policies that determine the accessibility, speed and value of progress against cancer.
