Expansion of cell-to-cell communication drives early development of pancreatic cancer, finds new research

Discussions of cancer often stress the genetic mutations that drive disease by altering the normal function of cellular proteins. KRAS, for example, normally acts as an on/off switch for cellular proliferation, but mutations to the gene—common in lung cancer, colorectal cancer and pancreatic cancer—cause that switch to stay on.
