Researchers Clarify Cellular Processes Related to Radiation Resistance of Pancreatic Cancer Cells

Newsfeed image, light gray text on dark gray background
Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest cancer subtypes not just because it is difficult to diagnose early, but because it is inherently resistant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In a recent study, scientists from Japan investigated the relationship that exists between the radiation resistance of pancreatic cancer cells, the natural cell cycle, and a cellular mechanism called autophagy, or “self-digestion.”

Their results pave the way for novel radiosensitizers and improved therapeutic strategies for resistant cancers. Read more . . . .
