Pancreatic cancer or Pancreatic Ductal Cell Adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is the fourth most common cause of cancer-related death in the United States, exhibiting the lowest five-year survival rate among all cancerous conditions.

This poor outcome is mainly due to the asymptomatic early stages of pancreatic cancer and the consequent late diagnosis when the cancerous condition and/or tumor is untreatable [2, 3].
