Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month

Pancreatic cancer is one of the world’s deadliest cancers. It may result from hereditary germline or somatic acquired mutations that can also cause progression and metastasis. The disease is difficult to detect and patients usually remain asymptomatic until the disease reaches an advanced stage. To date, surgical resection is regarded as the only potentially curative treatment.

Our collection, which has been curated by the Cancer editorial team at Nature Communications, brings together the latest cutting-edge research in the field of  pancreatic cancer published in our journal. Outlining important knowledge of pancreatic cancer risk, diagnostics, treatment and outcomes, we aim to stimulate further research in this lethal malignancy.
