Journal of the pancreas is counted among the top journals in pancreatic cancer.
Journal of the Pancreas (JOP) is a scholarly Open Access journal that aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on current research findings about pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic cancer is a malignant neoplasm originating from transformed cells arising in tissues forming the pancreas. Pancreatic cancer (cancer of the pancreas) mainly occurs in people aged over 60. If it is diagnosed at an early stage, then an operation to remove the cancer gives some chance of a cure. In general, the more advanced the cancer (the more it has grown and spread), the less chance that treatment will be curative. Both the exocrine and endocrine cells of the pancreas can form tumors. But tumors formed by the exocrine cells are much more common. When someone says that they have pancreatic cancer, they usually mean an exocrine pancreatic cancer. Not all of the tumors in the pancreas are cancer. A small number are not cancer (they are benign). Pancreatic cancer cells do not experience programmatic death, but instead continue to grow and divide.
