New research shows how pancreatic cancer cells can change their diet to survive

by | 30 August, 2023 | Pancreatic cancer, Research

An international research study has shown that pancreatic cancer cells are able to alter the fuel they use to grow and spread to help them survive in difficult environments, a finding that scientists hope could be exploited to develop new treatments for pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic cancer is the deadliest common cancer, with more than half of people dying within three months of diagnosis, yet treatment options are limited. Currently, the only potential curative treatment of the disease is surgery, but just one in ten patients receive the operation. Providing effective treatment options to everyone affected by pancreatic cancer is crucial in order to improve survival rates.

The study was co-led by a team of scientists at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, headed up by Dr Anguraj Sadanandam, and the University of Michigan in the US. This work, published in Nature today, was funded by Pancreatic Cancer UK, the Ian Harty Charitable Trust and the National Institutes of Health in the US.
