I was pleased and intrigued to read that Australian researchers discovered new treatment options for this deadly disease. Genomic sequencing is very interesting to me because it's a topic I don't know a whole lot about. The article does a good job explaining it to give the readers a basic understanding. It is organized and concise, which is important when explaining science to someone who just doesn't consider science a strong point (aka -- me).
This quote from the article leaves me feeling hopeful:
"The work of (lead author) Nicola Waddell and her colleagues is particularly important because it has for the first time revealed clear markers that will be useful in selecting more appropriate therapies for patients with pancreatic cancer"
I think that it is extremely important for more people, as many people as possible, to study cancer and continue to find treatment options. I hope one day cancer will not affect families at the capacity that it does today.
