Cancer of pancreas or pancreatic cancer is defined as condition of a malignant neoplasm of the pancreas, as the cells have become cancerous and divided uncontrollably. Most pancreatic cancers start in the ducts (exocrine component of the pancreas) that carry pancreatic juices with cancer of an epithelium that originates in glandular tissue accounts for over 75 - 90% of all cases of exocrine cancers. Japanese apricot extract (MK615) has contained aneffectively therapeutic value in treating human cancers through a reactive oxygen species-dependent mechanism(1). In pancreatic cancer, MK615 extract significant inhibited 3 pancreatic cancer cell lines PANC-1, PK-1, and PK45H , through dual inhibition of Aurora A and B kinases(2).
