Understanding Why Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma Is So Lethal

Photomicrograph of a human pancreatic cancer tumor showing a mixture of different kinds of cells in close proximity to each other. Tumor-promoting, p63-positive cancer cells are stained red, neutrophils orange, fibroblasts white, and other p63-negative cancer cells are green. Given that p63-positive pancreatic cancer cells secrete inflammatory factors, this image demonstrates how these cancer cells can communicate with surrounding cells and promote inflammatory processes in human patients. The sample was stained by multiplexed immunofluorescence. Credit: Vakoc lab/CSHL, 2020
