  • As a bi-directional tumor regulatory factor, autophagy plays an important role in the development, progression, and treatment of pancreatic cancer. Perineural invasion, a special pathway for tumor metastasis, has a high incidence rate in pancreatic cancer and is closely associated with high recurrence rate after pancreatic cancer surgery and pancreatic cancer-related pain. This article summarizes the research advances in the role of autophagy and perineural invasion in pancreatic cancer, so as to provide new research ideas for the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic cancer.
