In 2008, an estimated 217 000 new cases of pancreatic cancer were diagnosed worldwide, and in the UK 8000 new cases of pancreatic cancer are reported every year. 5 6 Worldwide, pancreatic cancer is 13th in incidence but 8th in terms of cancer death. In the UK, pancreatic cancer is the 5th most common cause of cancer death in both sexes, despite being only the 11th most common cancer overall. This is largely due to red flag symptoms usually appearing only once the disease has progressed to… 
Pancreatic cancer
TLDR
GPs play an important role in the palliation of patients with incurable disease, and the stage of disease at diagnosis has significant prognostic importance, and as such, early investigation and referral of Patients with suspicious symptoms is crucial.
Immunotherapy for pancreatic cancer
TLDR
This thesis aims to find new ways to treat pancreatic cancer by immunotherapy with novel CMV and EBV targets recognized by tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes and neoepitopes as targets for Tumor-in Filtering Lymphocytes from Patients with Pancreatic Cancer.
Epidemiology and etiology of pancreatic cancer
TLDR
The findings showed that presence of chronic corpus atrophic gastritis was non-significantly associated with an increased pancreatic cancer risk, and the finding implied that HCV infection may be associated with a higher pancreaticcancer risk but further studies are warranted to confirm the observed association.
Case Report: Case report: Rare presentation of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma with severe depressive disorder with catatonia
TLDR
A case of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma in a 57-year-old man who suffered from abdominal pain, constipation, and significant weight loss and eventually developed severe depression with psychotic symptoms and catatonia, which further exacerbated the challenges in the management of the malignancy.
A case of successful resection after FOLFIRINOX in a patient with borderline resectable pancreatic adenocarcinoma
TLDR
A case of borderline resectable PAC treated with FOLFIRINOX (5-fluorouracil, oxaliplatin, irinotecan, and leucovorin) followed by successful pancreaticoduodenectomy is described, suggesting that FOL FIRINOX is an effective neoadjuvant regimen in the setting of borderline rearranged pancreatic PAC.
Pancreatic cancer surgery with vascular resection: current concepts and perspectives
TLDR
While a large number of tumors with suspected venous infiltration can be resected with concomitant venous resection and reconstruction, arterial infiltration has been considered a contraindication to resection.

Recent Developments and Current Issues in the Treatment of Pancreatic Cancer
TLDR
In patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer, targeting the stroma with nab-paclitaxel has shown promising results in a phase III trial setting and this regimen is suitable for a broad range of patients due to its generally good tolerability profile.
Distinct Survival Outcomes in Subgroups of Stage III Pancreatic Cancer Patients: Taiwan Cancer Registry and Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results registry
TLDR
Lymph node involvement and tumor grade are predictive factors for survival in stage-III PDAC patients, and this new precise classification system can be used to guide treatment planning in advanced-stage pancreatic cancer.

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration in the diagnosis and staging of pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
TLDR
The role of EUS-FNA in the detection and confirmation of pancreatic cancer is addressed, and a high-resolution EUS image is obtained that has a higher resolution than CT scan or magnetic resonance imaging, but with a much narrower field of view.

TLDR
Surgical palliation for pancreatic cancer was generally effective and was associated with an operative mortality rate of less than 10%.
Surgical palliation in pancreatic cancer.
TLDR
This review describes the best evidence (if possible randomised controlled trials) in recent literature on the palliation of most important symptoms and focuses on surgical palliative treatment options.
Do Early Symptoms of Pancreatic Cancer Exist that Can Allow an Earlier Diagnosis?
TLDR
In approximately 15% of patients, disturbances existed more than 6 months before pain or jaundice, which, although not specific, could raise suspicion of the possibility of pancreatic cancer.
Analysis of mortality rates for pancreatic cancer across the world.
TLDR
The changes perhaps reflect standardization and consolidation of diagnostic tests for pancreatic cancer in the Western world and further in-depth analysis would be required.
Probability of pancreatic cancer following diabetes: a population-based study.
TLDR
Almost 1% of diabetes subjects aged > or =50 years will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer within 3 years of first meeting criteria for diabetes, and the usefulness of new-onset diabetes as marker of early pancreaticcancer needs further evaluation.
Extended resection for pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
TLDR

TLDR
A large number of patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer have suffered from atypical prognosis, and the use of currently available treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation, has been associated with a loss of quality of life.
