From Medical News Today:

' 'We identified 32 genes from 10 genetic pathways that are consistently in pancreatic tumors, but further analysis of gene activity revealed four distinct subtypes of tumors, lead researcher Sean Grimmond, a professor at the University of Melbourne, told Medical News Today.

The international team of researchers classified pancreatic cancer into four subtypes; squamous, pancreatic progenitor, immunogenic and aberrantly differentiated endocrine eXocrine (ADEX).'

It seems to be a major advance - based on 456 genomic analyses of pancreatic tumor DNA. Published in Nature. PANCAN also sent out an email announcing this earlier today. Hopefully it may lead to new targeted therapies.
