Pancreatic cancer is a serious condition that only few people manage to survive. The American Cancer Society estimated that about 53 Henrik Zetterberg Jersey ,000 people will be diagnosed with the disease this year alone. Some 41,000 Americans will succumb to pancreatic cancer.

Researchers, however Anthony Mantha Jersey , believe they may have found a way to stop metastasis in its tracks. This could potentially hold the door open for more effective treatments while lowering the mortality risk associated with this form of cancer. At present, the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is less than 10 percent.

The research to date has focused on one of the more aggressive types of the disease, which is even more encouraging.

By reducing the accumulation of cholesteryl ester, the drugs have shown themselves to be useful in preventing the spread of pancreatic cancer. So far Jimmy Howard Jersey , research has centered on mice without the benefit of human trials. The findings, however, showed that mice treated with the drugs were much less likely to witness the development of pancreatic cancer lesions in their livers.

While much study remains to be performed to see if cholesterol control can stop aggressive pancreatic cancer from spreading, the latest research is a major step in the right direction. Pancreatic cancer is among the most difficult forms to detect. This, in turn Tomas Tatar Jersey , makes it very difficult for early interventions to take place. Whereas cancers, such as breast and prostate, have early screening protocols, the same simply isn鈥檛 so for pancreatic cancer. Gaining an edge in treatment may one day delver hope to those diagnosed with the disease.

People who are concerned about the potential of pancreatic cancer are urged to discuss the condition with their healthcare providers. This form of cancer tends to present with few or rather vague symptoms at its onset. Risk factors include diabetes, chronic pancreatitis and family history Gustav Nyquist Jersey , among others.
