Newsfeed image, light gray text on dark gray background
Pancreatic cancer is very aggressive and, unfortunately, has a poor prognosis with a 5-year survival of only 5%. Most deaths related to pancreatic cancer are due to metastasis, which occurs when the tumor invades other organs. Treatments to stop tumor metastasis, which will save thousands of lives, are still missing. In this context, understanding the molecular mechanisms that cause pancreatic cancer metastasis is the first step to developing effective targeted treatments.

In a study published in eLife at DOI:, researchers from Osaka University revealed a previously unknown mechanism for metastasis of pancreatic cancer that could be used as a therapeutic target. Read more . . .
