Scientific Framework for Pancreatic Cancer

In February of this year the U.S. National Cancer Institute published an important overview of the state of the science and medicine of pancreatic cancer.  We will comment on aspects of it from time to time in the future, but as it so comprehensive and precise, in a departure from our usual practice, we will […]

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 […]

DNA Found in Exosomes in Pancreatic Cancer – with Characteristic Mutations !

We recently commented (here) on the interesting properties of exosomes that were explored as possible messengers within the body including saliva in the context specifically of biomarkers in pancreatic cancer (ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas) by Wong and dental colleagues at UCLA. Exosomes are tiny bubble type structures found in most biological fluids that contain […]
