New Pancreatic Cancer Study May Offer Hope for the Future

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest forms of cancer. Because it is a hidden cancer, pancreatic cancer is normally not detected until after it has spread. Research at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey (CINJ) may offer hope in treating one of the deadliest forms of cancer. NJToday’s Mike Schneider sat down with Elizabeth Poplin, a medical oncologist, and Edmund Lattime, CINJ Deputy Director, to discuss a vaccine study which focuses on the interaction between the immune system and tumors.
