Saw this in the Daily Mail (we just get it for the puzzles!). Very hopeful. All the lacklustre research has got to have been due the physiology of the pancreas and most tumours turning up in the head up close to major arteries with aggressive ability to spread and easy means to spread. Gene or immunological therapies just have to be the most likely way to beat this thing into submission. The great news is that I've also read that the number of researchers attracted to battling this (probably because of the new wave therapies bringing such promise) has gone up drastically.

Not likely to help our loved ones, but given that I don't know my genetic history on my mothers side, so might be running the risk of having hereditary pc, it's something I'll be keeping a close eye on for both me, my sister and our children.

Thanks for posting.
