Mayo Clinic discovers genetic links to pancreatic cancer

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most difficult forms of cancer to diagnose and treat. For many patients, the disease is not treatable through surgery and standard chemotherapy. New research published in JAMA, supported in part through the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine,  gives insight into the underlying genetic links to pancreatic cancer.  Senior […]

Genomic Rearrangement Drives Pancreatic Cancer

By Jeff Briggs Jeff Briggs

Pancreatic cancer remains the fourth leading cause of cancer-associated deaths in the United States. While prognosis has improved for other major cancers thanks to early diagnosis, better therapies and a more comprehensive knowledge of genetic factors, death rates from pancreatic cancer continue to rise. Roughly 90 percent of pancreatic cancers are ductal pancreatic adenocarcinomas (PDAC) […]
