Brief Answer:
Hello dear. There is nothing new in the treatment of pancreatic cancer.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I have gone through the details. The treatment of carcinoma pancreas depends upon the stage of the disease we are dealing with. If it is early stage disease, it is curable with surgery and with the addition of chemo or radiotherapy. However in advanced stage, it is not curable.
There is no new drug in currently approved by the FDA, however, the treatment is still very effective.
Please revert back with the reports of imaging and biopsy.
Thanks
