Targeting healthy cells changes invasive behaviour of pancreatic cancer

25th January 2022

Researchers from Barts Cancer Institute at Queen Mary University of London, led by Dr Angus Cameron, have found a way to modulate the invasive behaviour of pancreatic cancer by targeting a non-cancerous cell type found within pancreatic tumours. The findings, published in Cell Reports, provide valuable insights into the biology of pancreatic cancer progression, and could help to drive improvements in cancer treatment.

Immune cells assemble – boosting the effects of chemotherapy in pancreatic cancer

9th July 2021

A new study from Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London, has demonstrated that immune cells can be stimulated to assemble into special structures within pancreatic cancer such that, at least in a pre-clinical model, researchers can demonstrate an improvement in the efficacy of chemotherapy.

Study identifies biomarker that could help to diagnose pancreatic cancer

29th June 2021

Researchers from Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London, have identified a protein that could be used to aid in the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Findings from the new study suggest that a protein called pentraxin 3 may be a specific diagnostic biomarker – or biological measure – for pancreatic cancer, with the ability to differentiate pancreatic cancer from other non-cancerous conditions of the pancreas.
