Researchers Find a New Therapeutic Target in Pancreatic Cancer

Researchers Find a New Therapeutic Target in Pancreatic Cancer
The development of pancreatic cancer is driven by co-existing mutations in an oncogene involved in controlling cell growth, called KRAS, and in a tumor suppressor gene, called p53. But how these mutations cooperate to promote cancer is unknown.[/subhead

A new study co-led by Steven Leach, MD, Director of Dartmouth’s and Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC), uncovers a direct link between these mutations and the mechanism that regulates cell activity, providing insight for future development of therapeutics that could hit this newly found target in pancreatic cancer.
