New Target for Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer occurs when the cells in the pancreas have the ability to invade other parts of the body. A new research from the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California has shown new promise in the fight against one of the lethal forms of cancer. The research study in mutated mice showed that expressing only half of the amount of the glucose-regulated protein GRP78 could be enough to halt the development of the earliest stage of pancreatic cancer.
