Pancreatic cancer remains one of the most deadly and least survivable cancers; it is asymptomatic until quite advanced and is resistant to conventional therapies. It has recently become apparent that cancer tumor cells are closely associated with other cells called cancer-associated fibroblasts or CAFs. These cells promote the malignant process and block immune surveillance. CAFs are thus new drug targets for pancreatic and other cancer therapies. Our products were used in recent research regarding pancreatic stellate cells, a CAF that is gaining considerable interest for new treatment options through advanced understanding of cancer biology.
These cells should be cultured with Pancreatic Stellate CAF Maintaining Media
