Patients with pancreatic cancer have a high incidence of weight loss
Baracos et al., 2017, Nature Primer, In Press
Patients with
Patients with confirmed pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC)
that are candidates for surgical resection (stage I and II)
Analyzing Serum Markers
SDF IL-15 TRAIL
TNF IL-17 TGFa
INFg LIF CD-40L
IL-1b MCP-1 FGF2
IL-4 G-CSF PDGFBB
IL-6 GM-CSF VEGF-A
IL-8 HGF MMP13
IL-10 RANKL Leptin

GDF-15 is Elevated in Pancreatic Cancer
Wang et al., 2014, BMC Cancer
Elevated GDF-15 Associates with Poor Survival in Pancreatic Cancer
Ratnam et al., 2017, JCI
GDF-15 is a driver of cancer cachexia
