Special Issue Information
Advancement in pancreatic cancer management has been dishearteningly slow. In the age of molecularly-targeted drugs and immunotherapy, the best treatment option for advanced and metastatic patients, which is the majority, remain combinations of cytotoxic drugs. For those fortunate enough to undergo curative pancreatectomy, cancer recurrence continues to be a real and significant concern. This Special Issue will discuss recent development in our understanding of the biology and genomic characteristics, early detection research, innovations in the treatment of localized disease and therapeutics targeting novel targets in pancreatic cancer.
