Researchers Find Novel Way to Induce Pancreatic Cancer Cell Death
Pancreatic cancer, most frequently pancreatic ductal
adenocarcinoma (PDAC), is the most lethal and aggressive of all cancers.
Unfortunately, there are not many effective therapies available other than
surgery. In an effort to better understand pancreatic cancer at a molecular
level, scientists at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in collaboration with
those at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Tianjin
Medical University General Hospital in China, conducted a study to try to
identify molecules that could become the next generation of therapeutics for
this type of cancer.
