Adding Grade Status to Staging Improves Prognostic Capability in Pancreatic Cancer

The pancreatic cancer surgical (and oncology) team at UCLA developed a new experimental staging method such that the tumor’s grade was added to the standard (TNM) AJCC staging criteria, whereby a high-grade tumor increased the pancreatic cancer stage (ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas) to the next higher level than would have been otherwise indicated. Published […]

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 […]

Engineered Nano-delivery of Gemcitabine for Pancreatic Cancer (in Mice)

Normally, we do not address pre-clinical studies for pancreatic cancer (ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas) in the Pancreatica Blog as so many of these fail when finally subjected to human testing. But sometimes there are such studies that are so intriguing that they cannot be easily ignored. And this particular research study of nanotherapy for […]
