PowerPoint Presentation: New hope for Patients PowerPoint Presentation: Pancreatic cancer is caused by a set of mutated genetic conditions, or genes, mainly responsible for causing the disease. It was discovered by a team of Australian researchers and it has been revealed in the latest study published in the medical journal, Nature. PowerPoint Presentation: This is, actually, the first time that a collaboration of some of the best experts in the world has carried out a research to determine how genetic factors can include over 50 different cancer types. According to recent reports, pancreatic cancer is accountable for more cases of deaths than any other type of cancer, including the major ones. Survival rates haven’t improved over a span of 40 years, which makes it the fourth most common cause of pancreatic cancer. Common signs and Symptoms of Pancreatic Cancer: vomiting nausea loss of appetite pain in upper abdomen or stomach, which spreads to the back unusual and rapid weight loss high blood sugar levels depression sign of trousseau – when blood clots start popping up suddenly in deep veins of the extremities of a person C ommon signs and Symptoms of P ancreatic Cancer PowerPoint Presentation: Experts have noted that there are no such early signs of pancreatic cancer; in fact, there may not be any signs initially. According to research done in the past, pancreatic cancer sometimes doesn’t come with any sign or symptom what-so-ever . As per previous research reports, patients with pancreatic cancer can even be saved if they go to some of the experienced facilities and hospitals. International Research : The international research conducted by a team of over 100 researchers, led by professor Sean Grimmon, from the eminent Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB) at The University of Queensland, together with Professor Andrew Biakin from the famous Kinghorn Cancer Center at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research. International Research PowerPoint Presentation: So , it is believed that the tumors often look quite similar under lenses, but genetic analysis actually reveals several variations in each of the tumors in different patients. This demonstrates that the so-names pancreatic cancer is not just a disease, but several, and recommends that people who supposedly have the cancer might not be treated in the same way. PowerPoint Presentation: In the near future, independent methods of diagnosis and treatment courses for pancreatic cancer patients are the norm. The study helped to find a set of new genes –which is also the axon guidance routine – that is commonly damaged in patients with pancreatic cancer . PowerPoint Presentation: It is associated with potentially poor outcome for such patients. It is, thus, a new marker for patients with pancreatic cancer that can also be used for treatment and prognosis. Personalized medicine is also another method of treating pancreatic cancer PowerPoint Presentation: which is a fast moving treatment option for various health problems. However , researchers need to take more time to develop the required genetic knowledge to implement health systems and translate that knowledge more effectively.
