Abstract

Despite stage IV pancreatic cancer is considered one of the main causes of cancer mortality, there is a few number of population-based studies discussing the patterns of survival of this cancer. Our study aimed at evaluation of 12-month relative survival rates of patients with stage IV pancreatic cancers in the United States using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Registry.
