Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the most lethal malignancies worldwide, associated with poor prognosis even when diagnosed at an early clinical stage (CS). Despite advances in surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy, the 5-year overall survival rate is only 7.0-8.5% [1]. FOLFIRINOX (5-fluorouracil, irinotecan, and oxaliplatin) and nab-paclitaxel plus gemcitabine are first-line treatment options in the metastatic setting, with a median overall survival of less than 1 year [2,3].

The work, described online in July in the journal Cancer Research, found that 4-HAP reduced metastatic tumor formation in a mouse model of human pancreatic cancer by assessing the fraction of liver surface covered by tumor tissue.

The group then tested 4-HAP as a treatment in a mouse model of pancreatic cancer, finding that the compound led to a 50% reduction in metastases to the liver in mice transplanted with human pancreatic tissue.

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is characterized by massive heterogeneity, with the coexistence at all disease stages of well- and poorly-differentiated cells with diverging transcriptional networks.

The poor survival of pancreatic cancer emphasizes the urgent need to identify the causes or the risk factors of pancreatic cancer in order to establish effective preventive strategies.

Metastasis is complex, involving multiple genetic, epigenetic, biochemical, and physical changes in the cancer cell and its microenvironment. Cells with metastatic potential are often characterized by altered cellular contractility and deformability, lending them the flexibility to disseminate and navigate through different microenvironments. We demonstrate that mechanoresponsiveness is a hallmark of pancreatic cancer cells. Key mechanoresponsive proteins, those that accumulate in response to mechanical stress, specifically nonmuscle myosin IIA (MYH9) and IIC (MYH14), α-actinin 4, and filamin B, were highly expressed in pancreatic cancer as compared with healthy ductal epithelia. Their less responsive sister paralogs—myosin IIB (MYH10), α-a.

Purpose:. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA) is a deadly cancer that is broadly chemoresistant, due in part to biophysical properties of tumor stroma, which serves as a barrier to drug delivery for most classical chemotherapeutic drugs. The goal of this work is to evaluate the preclinical efficacy and mechanisms of PTC596, a novel agent with potent anticancer properties in vitro and desirable pharmacologic properties in vivo . Experimental Design: We assessed the pharmacology, mechanism, and preclinical efficacy of PTC596 in combination with standards of care, using multiple preclinical models of PDA. Results:. We found that PTC596 has pharmacologic properties that overcome the barrier to drug delivery in PDA, including a long circulating.
