New Treatment for Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer remains one of the most difficult cancers to treat, with a 5-year survival rate of only 7%. Pancreatic cancer is treated with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. A treatment that targets the stroma around a pancreatic cancer and makes blood vessels leaky, thereby facilitating the entry of chemotherapy drugs into the cancer cells, could help in the treatment of pancreatic cancer.
