The book has been overseen and published by the American Pancreatic Association with John A. Williams as Editor-in-Chief. It includes 65 chapters written and edited by a worldwide group of authorities.

Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths, characterised by poor survival, marked molecular heterogeneity and high intrinsic and acquired chemoresistance. Only 10–20% of pancreatic cancer patients present with surgically resectable disease and even then, 80% die within 5 years.

Elsevier eLibrary, Pancreatic cancer remains a dismal disease with an incidence that is on the rise even in a low incidence region like India.

In recent years, there have been significant advances in the understanding of pancreatic cancer largely due to strides in modern molecular biology, pathology and radiology. While molecular biology continues to provide an optimistic vision for future.

The purpose of this workshop is to explore recent developments in understanding the origin and mechanisms of pain in pancreatic disease, the relationship of visceral neural pathways and central pain centers, the role of behavioral factors and disorders on the perception of pain, and differences in pain perception and processes in children.
