New 3D Study of Human Pancreatic Cancer

Scientists in the Sol Goldman Pancreatic Cancer Research Center just published a remarkable study of pancreatic cancer using a technique called "tissue clearing." This technique allowed the investigators to study human pancreatic cancers in three dimensions (3D) at the microscopic level. Published in the journal Modern Pathology, this study provides unique insights into how pancreatic cancer invades the small blood vessels (veins) of the pancreas. The invasion of blood vessels allows pancreatic cancer cells to "escape" from the pancreas and spread to other organs such as the liver. The team plans to build on this paper to study the cellular processes that lead to blood vessel invasion. Their hope is to one day block blood vessel invasion.
