Preventing Pancreatic Cancer Metastasis by Keeping Cells 'Sheltered in Place'

Scientists have shown that pancreatic cancer metastasis -- when tumor cells gain the deadly ability to migrate to new parts of the body -- can be suppressed by inhibiting a protein called Slug that ...

Surgeons Study Guidelines for Treating Cancer Patients During Pandemic

New research provides guidance on clinical decision-making in regards to treating pancreatic cancer patients during the COVID-19 ...

Foot-and-Mouth-Disease Virus Could Help Target the Deadliest Cancer

The foot-and-mouth-disease virus is helping scientists to tackle a common cancer with the worst survival rate -- pancreatic ...

Bringing the 'Sticky' Back to Pancreatic Cancer

A multidisciplinary team of researchers has found that a gene regulator, called BACH1, facilitates the spread of pancreatic cancer to other parts of the body. The scientists say drugs that control ...

Protein Could Offer Therapeutic Target for Pancreatic Cancer

A protein that drives growth of pancreatic cancer, and which could be a target for new treatments, has been ...

Oxygen Deficiency Rewires Mitochondria

Mitochondria burn oxygen and provide energy for the body. Cells lacking oxygen or nutrients have to change their energy supply quickly in order to keep growing. Scientists have now shown that ...

Breaking the Stroma Barrier: Study Shows a New Way to Hit Cancer With Radiation

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are commonly used to treat cancer, but are not always effective and can have toxic side effects. Researchers tested a new radiotherapy technique that sends ...

Innovative Pancreatic Cancer Treatment May Rev Up Immune System

A research team reports that combining a type of radiation therapy with immunotherapy not only cures pancreatic cancer in mice, but appears to reprogram the immune system to create an 'immune ...

Scientists Have Identified the Presence of Cancer-Suppressing Cells in Pancreatic Cancer

Researchers have identified cells containing a protein called Meflin that has a role in restraining the progression of pancreatic cancer. They have also shown that cancer progression can be ...

Fungal Invasion of Pancreas Creates Cancer Risk

Certain fungi move from the gut to the pancreas, expand their population more than a thousand-fold, and encourage pancreatic cancer growth, a new study ...

New Approach to Pain Treatment in Diseases of the Pancreas

One of the worst symptoms associated with inflammation or cancer of the pancreas is severe chronic pain. Pancreatic pain is difficult to treat, because many painkillers prove ineffective in ...

Pancreatic Cancer Discovery Reveals How the Aggressive Cancer Fuels Its Growth

A new discovery about pancreatic cancer sheds light on how the cancer fuels its growth and may help explain how promising cancer drugs work -- and for whom they will ...

Overcoming Resistance in Pancreatic Cancer

In pancreatic cancer cells' struggle to survive, the cells choose alternative routes when their main pathways are blocked by drugs. Researchers recently developed a new cocktail of drugs that ...

Study Confirms Protein as Potential Cause of Most Common Type of Pancreatic Cancer

An oncogene, UPS21, has been confirmed as a frequently amplified gene in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, the most common and often lethal form of pancreatic cancer. The discovery could lead to new ...

New Guideline Clarifies Role of Radiation Therapy in Pancreatic Cancer Treatment

A new clinical guideline provides recommendations on the use of radiation therapy to treat patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, including when radiation treatments are appropriate; optimal ...

Methylation of microRNA May Be a New Powerful Biomarker for Cancer

Researchers have found that levels of methylated microRNA were significantly higher in tissue and serum from cancer patients compared with that from normal controls. Specifically, methylation levels ...

Targeting Cell Division in Pancreatic Cancer

Study provides new evidence of synergistic effects of drugs that inhibit cell division and support for further clinical ...

Mutations Linked to Familial Pancreatic Cancer

A new study finds genetic mutations associated with hereditary forms of pancreatic cancer and mechanism by which these mutations may contribute to the development of ...

How Cells Override Genetic Changes

A new discovery could lead researchers to a more effective way to treat pancreatic ...

New Drug Shows Encouraging Survival in Pancreatic Cancer

A phase 1 clinical trial testing a new drug in pancreatic cancer had promising initial results, report researchers. The trial looked at AZD1775, an inhibitor designed to block an enzyme called Wee1, ...
