Preface for Special Edition Pancreas Cancer

Authors: Eileen M. O’Reilly, Lei Zheng

Abstract

Dr. Zheng and I are delighted to introduce the second part of a two-part series on pancreas cancer in the Chinese Clinical Oncology Journal, which updates us on a diverse series of topics in this disease. Pancreas cancer is gaining increasing prominence due to the rising incidence and relatively intransigent mortality rates. Nonetheless, there are major improvements in our understanding of the pathophysiology, genomic underpinnings and other critical aspects of this disease.
