A new study shows that a blood marker is linked to pancreatic cancer, according to a study published October 23 by scientists at the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center and Mayo Clinic. First author Dr. Halcyon Skinner, assistant professor of population health sciences at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, says the study is the first time pancreatic cancer risk has been linked to differences in telomeres' length in blood cells.
