Our world-chang­ing re­searchers are mak­ing sig­nif­i­cant ad­vance­ments in the treat­ment of can­cer, us­ing pre­ci­sion medicine to match ther­a­pies to pa­tients. Glas­gow re­searchers made a break­through re­clas­si­fi­ca­tion of pan­cre­atic can­cer. The study iden­ti­fied four key sub­types, each with their own dis­tinct char­ac­ter­is­tics and dif­fer­en­tial sur­vival out­comes. This will lead to new in­sights into more tai­lored ther­a­peu­tic op­tions, of­fer­ing new op­por­tu­ni­ties to treat the dis­ease.
