Pancreatic cancer remains a challenging clinical problem. It is foreseen that the disease will become the second cause of cancer deaths in the western world. To avoid this epidemic, progress will be needed through multiple approaches. In this Special Edition, we therefore welcome original papers and reviews in the following fields of pancreatic cancer research: improved prevention and early diagnostic strategies, molecular tumor stratification for personalized and molecularly targeted antitumor treatment, and the development of rational and tolerable multimodal therapies in the neoadjuvant, adjuvant, and palliative setting, also including radiotherapy.
In addition to tumor-directed treatment, there is a great need to improve quality of life in patients with pancreatic cancer through better symptom control, such as pain management, treatment of cachexia, and psychosocial support, and we also encourage the submission of papers focusing on these.
