The action of a gene called ATDC is required for the development of pancreatic cancer, a new study finds.

The work builds on the theory that many cancers arise when adult cells — to resupply cells lost to injury and inflammation — switch back into more “primitive,” high-growth cell types, like those that drive fetal development. Read more . . .
