MiRNAs Acting in Concert Impede PDCD4 and Related Genes in Pancreatic Cancer

Writing a pancreatic cancer blog is interesting. Research questions seem limited only by the level of imagination of researchers. We have addressed in our Pancreatica Blog a small body of research related to MicroRNA (MiRNA) work primarily related to seeking patterns that may aid in the eventual earlier diagnosis or even screening for pancreatic cancer: […]
