Study: Oral bacteria linked to pancreatic cancer risk
When certain bacteria are found in a patient's mouth, it may indicate an increased risk for pancreatic cancer, according to a study presented by U.S. researchers at the meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. The study, which was presented April 19 in New Orleans, could allow earlier, more precise treatment of the disease, which is responsible for 40,000 deaths in the U.S. each year.
