Analysis of Circulating Pancreatic Cancer Cells May Provide Clues for Better Treatment

A research team including NIBIB-funded scientists isolated circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in a mouse model of pancreatic cancer. Molecular analysis of the CTCs revealed distinct patterns of gene expression that were different from the primary pancreatic tumor. The surprising results identify potential new molecular targets that could lead to improved treatments for this deadly cancer. Read more in Bioscience Technology
