The prognosis of pancreatic cancer has historically been very poor with approximately 3% of patients alive five years after diagnosis. Surgical resection remains the only potentially curative option and is associated with a 5-year overall survival rate of between 10 and 15%, but it can be performed in less than 20% of cases. This is primarily because the cancer is either too advanced locally, or it has already spread to other organs, particularly to the liver with metastases.Read full article
