Background & Aims We evaluated global and regional burdens of, risk factors for, and epidemiologic trends in pancreatic cancer among groups of different sexes and ages. Methods We used data from the GLOBOCAN database to estimate pancreatic cancer incidence and mortality in 184 countries. We examined the association between lifestyle and metabolic risk factors, extracted from the World Health Organization Global Health Observatory database, and pancreatic cancer incidence and mortality by univari...

The COVID-19 pandemic has destabilized the traditional bench to bedside workflow of cancer research. Particularly, in vivo experimentation plus the collection and distribution of patient samples has been significantly affected. Strategies are needed now to revolutionize current cancer research practices in order to avoid history repeating itself in future pandemics. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this World View highlights the need to revolutionize current cancer research practices in terms ...

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to clarify the role of pancreatic surgery during the COVID-19 pandemic to optimize patients' and clinicians' safety and safeguard health care capacity. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA The COVID-19 pandemic heavily impacts health care systems worldwide. Cancer patients appear to have an increased risk for adverse events when infected by COVID-19, but the inability to receive oncological care seems may be an even larger threat, particularly in case of pancreatic cancer....
