Here are the latest postings to the Pancreatic Cancer Genomics Group on Mendeley. Some of the more interesting highlights from this batch of papers include, a finding that in one paper that a Pomegranate extract was found to be more effective at cell cycle arrest than paclitaxel.  And that the inhibition of RAS family members using ACE inhibitors was shown to double the length of progression free survival time in patients in a University of Tokyo study.  For those of you who are interested in learning more about the form of pancreatic cancer that Steve Jobs currently suffers from, you’ll find a number of papers on Pancreatic Neurendocrine Tumors (PNET) here and in the group’s collection here.

If you would like to recommend additional papers to the group, please comment on this post, or join the group.  All links to papers are freely available through the group; however, access to the complete text of the papers may vary depending on your institution’s access policies.
