A group of members of both chambers of Congress is urging NCI to increase funding for research in gastric cancers—the latest in a string of advocacy initiatives to carve out fiscal support for specific diseases.

“Deadly gastric cancer is on the rise in young people,” reads a Nov. 26 letter from five members of the Senate. “Gastric cancer receives by far the lowest amount of research funding for the common cancers at NCI, at only $12 million in 2012. That amounts to only 0.4 percent of the entire NCI FY 2012 budget for common cancer research.”
