Pancreatic Cancer and Obesity Directly Linked

Pancreatic Cancer and Obesity Directly Linked UCLA Investigators have discovered the first direct link between pancreatic cancer and obesity. Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly types of cancer in humans. Like other forms of cancer, early diagnosis can improve a person's long-term survival. However, this especially aggressive form... Read More

Cancer Treatment May Be Enhanced by Blood Pressure Drug

Cancer Treatment May Be Enhanced by Blood Pressure Drug New research reveals that a common class of drug employed to control high blood pressure could enhance cancer treatment by aiding delivery of chemotherapy drugs and oxygen through tumors. A clinical trial is already underway to confirm the results of the study. Read More

Inflammation Driven Pancreatic Cancer's Origins Discovered

Inflammation Driven Pancreatic Cancer's Origins Discovered Investigators from Mayo Clinic in Florida have recently decoded the process that transforms chronic inflammation of the pancreas, or pancreatitis, into pancreatic cancer. They claim their findings reveal new means of identifying pancreatitis patients who face pancreatic cancer risk and new pot... Read More

The Events Leading to Pancreatic Cancer Onset

The Events Leading to Pancreatic Cancer Onset A pancreatic cancer diagnosis is especially devastating for patients since the prognosis for recovery is typically poor; this is because the cancer is most often not detected until late stages. Researchers have now uncovered new data concerning the tumor-initiating events that leads to pancrea... Read More

Pancreatic Cancer Patients See New Hope with Discovery

Pancreatic Cancer Patients See New Hope with Discovery Australian researchers have discovered a set of mutated genes believed to be responsible for causing pancreatic cancer. The findings were published in the journal Nature. This is the first time that collaboration amongst the world's top experts has been conducted to establish the genetic facto... Read More
