LIF Drives Neural Remodeling in Pancreatic Cancer and Offers a New Candidate Biomarker

Newsfeed Image, Light Gray Text On Dark Gray Background
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is characterized by extensive stroma and pathogenic modifications to the peripheral nervous system that elevate metastatic capacity.

In this study, we show that the IL6-related stem cell–promoting factor LIF supports PDAC-associated neural remodeling (PANR). LIF was overexpressed in tumor tissue compared with healthy pancreas, but its receptors LIFR and gp130 were expressed only in intratumoral nerves. Read more . . .
