Effective chemotherapy protocols as induction treatment provide increasing opportunities for curative resection of borderline-resectable pancreatic cancer (BRPC) and locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC). Although improved survival after resection of BRPC and LAPC with chemotherapy has been reported, reliable recommendations on the indication for induction treatment and surgical treatment are currently lacking. The current definitions of BRPC and LAPC focus only on the anatomic factors and not on the biology of the tumor. The scope of this Special Issue is to stratify resectable PC, BRPC, and LAPC in terms of biological behavior for the revision of definition.
For this Special Issue, I would like to invite authors to submit studies focusing on the new categorization and surgical indication. Authors are welcome to cover other specific topics that have not been mentioned but fall within the theme of the Special Issue.
