Significance to patient care
Pancreatic cancer is the fourth-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S., and its incidence is increasing. The hope is that the development of early pancreatic cancer detection techniques and novel, alternative therapeutic strategies will improve the dismal prognosis for patients suffering from this devastating disease.
