Pancreatic cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer death in the United States as well as around the world. This disease cuts across all racial and socio-economic barriers and is nearly always fatal.
Because of the features and location of the pancreas, roughly 60 percent of time the disease has already spread when it's diagnosed. This means that surgery, the only hope of a cure, is not an option. Annually nearly 30,000 Americans will die from pancreatic cancer.
