What makes pancreatic cancer so aggressive? New study sheds light

15 enero 2015

New research helps explain why pancreatic cancer is so lethal, with fewer than a third of patients surviving even early stage disease. The researchers found a gene known to be involved in nearly 90 percent of pancreatic cancers promotes cancer growth and spread. The gene, ATDC, plays a key role in how a tumor progresses from a preinvasive state to an invasive cancer to metastatic cancer.
