Pancreatic cancer& chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma, an exocrine tumour originating from the cells lining the pancreatic duct, is the most prevalent type of pancreatic cancer. Less than 5% of pancreatic cancers are endocrine tumours, a much less frequent variety also known as neuroendocrine or islet cell tumours.

Pancreatic cancer chemotherapy although the primary treatment for pancreatic cancer is surgery, many individuals are initially inoperable since the disease has already spread to their blood vessels. At the Pancreas Center, we use chemotherapy and radiation therapy to reduce tumour size and are able to do surgery on a large number of patients with locally incurable pancreatic cancer who would not otherwise have a chance at recovery. Each patient's decision to have chemotherapy prior to surgery is complicated, and the surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, gastroenterologists, and others consider it in a multidisciplinary conference. Chemotherapy medications are used to treat cancer and are often Gemcitabine (Gemzar®), nab-paclitaxel (Abraxane), oxaliplatin, irinotecan, docetaxel (Taxotere®), cis-platinum (Platinol®), and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) or capecitabine are all used to treat pancreatic adenocarcinoma. These medications are occasionally combined or administered singly.
