By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Cancer Gene Therapy Week -- Fresh data on Biotechnology are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Zhenjiang, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Pancreatic cancer is a devastating disease with an overall 5-year survival rate less than 5%."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Jiangsu University, "Multiple signaling pathways are implicated in the pathogenesis of pancreatic cancer, such as Wnt/beta-catenin, Notch, Hedgehog, hypoxia-inducible factor, signal transducer and activator of transcription, specificity proteins/Kruppel-like factors, and Forkhead box (FOX)."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Recently, increasing evidence has demonstrated that the transcription factor FOXM1 plays important roles in the initiation, progression, and metastasis of a variety of human tumors, including pancreatic cancer."
