Abstract

Pancreatic cancer ranks eighth with respect to incidence of cancer in the United States. However, it is the fifth most common cause of death due to cancer with about 25,000 deaths per year (1). Diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is usually late in the course of the disease thus precluding effective treatment. The median survival following diagnosis is 4–6 months and the 5-year survival is usually less than 1% of all cases. With the exception of an association with the smoking of cigarettes, the etiology of pancreatic cancer is largely unknown (2).
