Core Tip The use of neoadjuvant therapy for patients with resectable pancreatic cancer (PC) has been used by an increasing number of cancer centers around the world. The main rationale of using neoadjuvant therapies in resectable PC is the hope that patients’ likelihood of long-term overall survival will benefit from the chemo or chemoradiation therapy administered when their overall conditions allow them to tolerate the treatment. At this time, there is no phase Ⅲ trial to support the use of neoadjuvant therapies in resectable PC. Without strong scientific evidence supporting the theoretical advantages of neoadjuvant therapies, these potential benefits might turn out not to be worth the risk of tumors progression while waiting for surgery.
