-- Deirdre Newman Efforts to stop one of the deadliest cancers are bearing fruit at UC Irvine. Researchers there recently made a discovery that may ultimately slow the growth of pancreatic tumor cells and increase survival rates for the world's fourth-deadliest cancer. The study appears in the January issue of Molecular Cancer Therapeutics. Murray Korc, professor of medicine and chief of endocrinology at UCI Medical Center, and his colleagues found that the binding of growth factors to "dummy" receptors -- ones incapable of sending signals to cells -- sharply reduced tumor sizes and decreased the spread of cancer cells to other parts of the body.

Deepa Bharath Ralph Hillman knows what it means to be a cancer patient. He was diagnosed with renal cancer in 1993. His wife died of pancreatic cancer in 1988. Hillman, 70, also lost his father to colon cancer. "I've been there and seen a lot of it -- all different kinds of cancer," the Newport Beach resident said. "I just don't know why some live and others die." So Hillman found a purpose, his mission in life. For seven years now, he has been helping out and offering support to other cancer patients at the Hoag Cancer Center, where he was a patient eight years ago. "I became a volunteer because I thought it was time for me to give back," Hillman said.
