A type of molecular ‘rabble-rouser’ that triggers pancreatic cancer to become aggressive and spread around the body has been identified by scientists.

The team behind the early-stage research, led by Imperial College London and funded by Pancreatic Cancer UK, say the findings may open avenues for treatments that target these molecules.

The molecules, called microRNAs, could also potentially be used to assess how aggressive a patient’s cancer is, and how likely it is to spread around the body. Read more . . .
