Patients with localized pancreatic adenocarcinoma in central Mississippi: a retrospective analysis of survival.

Abstract

Factors influencing the survival of central Mississippi patients with adenocarcinoma of the pancreas were analyzed by a retrospective analysis of the two largest tumor registries in the state. The authors report that this Mississippi data agree with very recent reports describing significant benefit from chemoradiotherapy in localized disease, and suggests a less fatalistic attitude of the medical community towards localized pancreatic carcinoma is appropriate.
