Device hits pancreatic tumors hard with toxic four-drug cocktail, sparing the body
A new implantable device delivers first-line treatment for pancreatic cancer directly to tumors, bypassing bloodstream and limiting widespread side effects. A team of researchers from the University of North Carolina including Drs. Jen Jen Yeh and Joseph DeSimone, has shown in preclinical research that the device can deliver a particularly toxic dose of drugs directly to pancreatic tumors to stunt their growth or, in some cases, shrink them. This approach would also spare the patient toxic side effects.

Preclinical study finds no benefit for diabetes drug in pancreatic cancer
UNC Lineberger researchers found in a study published in PLOS ONE that the diabetes drug metformin failed to show any benefit against pancreatic cancer, despite excitement about the drug for potential anti-cancer benefits. They believe the study shows the importance of testing new therapies in preclinical animal models that incorporate actual tumor tissue to better predict patient response.
