Cancer Discov. 2017 Oct;7(10):1067-1068. doi: 10.1158/2159-8290.CD-17-0887.


<b/> Pathways that stimulate metastasis of pancreatic cancer cells are critical for understanding tumor evolution and can serve as potential therapeutic targets. The microenvironment produces a host of metabolic perturbations and tropic factors that may play a formative role in this process.
