Why is it important?

With pancreatic cancer having a poor prognosis, investigations to comprehend its molecular underpinnings and research on natural chemicals could lead to the development of safer treatment alternatives with enhanced survival rates for pancreatic cancer patients.


Writing this article was a great learning experience for me as well as the co-authors. It helped us understand the severity of the disease and how good lifestyle factors are important for a healthy life. It also made me realise the enormous potential nature has to provide us with combat weapons for this deadly disease.
