Scientists evaluated improvements to therapeutic efficacy through combination therapy incorporating NanoKnife and M1 virus. They showed that irreversible electroporation triggered reactive oxygen species-dependent apoptosis in pancreatic cancer cells mediated by phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase/protein kinase B pathway suppression.

Scientists evaluated the efficacy of TR1801-ADC, a newly developed ADC composed of a MET antibody conjugated to the highly potent pyrrolobenzodiazepine toxin-linker Tesirine. They first evaluated MET expression and subcellular localization in pancreatic cancer cell lines, human tumors and patient derived xenografts.

The authors focus on TGFB1/INHBA homodimer/Nodal-SMAD2/3 signaling network in pancreatic cancer as a pivotal central node which regulates multiple key mechanisms involved in the development of chemoresistance, including enhancement of the stem cell-like properties and tumorigenicity of pancreatic cancer cells, mediating cooperative interactions between pancreatic cancer cells and the surrounding stroma as well as regulating the deposition of ECM proteins within the tumor microenvironment.
