Ongoing Studies Could Modify the Script in Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer

Clinical trials should not be viewed as a last resort for patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer, explained Allyson Ocean, MD, who added that even frontline standards of care should be considered after exhausting all available study options. “There are plenty of clinical trials available for your patients. Clinical trials should always be the first consideration […]

New Radiation Therapy Helps Treat Inoperable Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is a serious and often fatal disease, but a September study published in Practical Radiation Oncology explores a new advancement in radiation therapy that may provide a better treatment option for some patients. Along with his colleagues, Michael Chuong, MD, study author and a board-certified radiation oncologist with the Miami Cancer Institute, studied 35 […]

Weight-Loss Surgery May Cut Pancreatic Cancer Risk in People With Diabetes

Weight-loss surgery significantly reduces the risk of pancreatic cancer in obese people with diabetes, a new study finds. For the study, the researchers analyzed 20 years of data from 1.4 million people, including more than 10,000 who’d had weight-loss surgery. About three-quarters of those who had weight-loss surgery were women. People who’d had weight-loss surgery […]

Single-cell RNA sequencing reveals details about individual cells in pancreatic tumors

Led by the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), an affiliate of City of Hope, and by HonorHealth Research and Innovation Institute, an international team of researchers have described in detail the individual cells that comprise the pancreatic cancer microenvironment, a critical step in devising new treatment options for patients with this aggressive and difficult-to-treat disease. […]

Mayo Clinic and TGen ID potential targets for the most-deadly form of pancreatic cancer

A team of researchers led by Mayo Clinic and the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), an affiliate of City of Hope, has identified specific potential therapeutic targets for the most aggressive and lethal form of pancreatic cancer. In what is believed to be the most comprehensive analysis of adenosquamous cancer of the pancreas (ASCP), the […]

Cancer Projects to Diversify Genetic Research Receive New Grants

The New York Genome Center awarded six cancer research grants this week as part of an initiative examining the role of race and ethnicity in major types of cancer. The projects will investigate a variety of cancers including pancreatic, colorectal and endometrial cancer in African-Americans; lung cancer in Asian-American patients; breast and prostate cancer in […]

UH researcher discovers susceptibility genes for pancreatic cancer

Six novel susceptibility genes for pancreatic cancer risk have been identified by University of Hawaiʻi Cancer Center researcher Lang Wu. The study was published in Cancer Research by the American Association for Cancer Research. “Our discovery of novel candidate susceptibility genes associated with pancreatic cancer will allow us to better understand the biology and genetics of this deadly malignancy, and help us […]

Diabetes increases risk for pancreatic cancer, study finds

Older adults with diabetes are nearly three times as likely to develop pancreatic cancer than the general population, according to an analysis published Thursday by JAMA Oncology. The link between diabetes and pancreatic cancer increases to seven-fold for people with the relatively rare Type 3C diabetes, which is caused by pancreatic conditions, the researchers said. The […]
