[Comment] Raising the bar for the adjuvant treatment of pancreatic cancer

The pace of therapeutic advances in pancreatic cancer has been painstakingly slow. A stark example of this can be witnessed in patients with early stage disease, in whom rates of long-term survival have remained fairly stagnant during the past few decades.
