Abstract

Abstract Inoculation of the pancreatic cancer cell line PC-1 into a defined area of the tail of the hamster pancreas led to development of multiple cancerous foci in the body of the pancreas along the main pancreatic duct. Each carcinoma showed identical histological characteristics and was completely separated from the others by regions of normal pancreatic tissue. This observation suggests spread of the cancer from the primary site in discontinuity through the ductal system of the pancreas.
