Pancreatic cancer has been in the news recently. Last month, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent surgery to remove a malignant tumor from her pancreas. That same week, actor Patrick Swayze, who was diagnosed with the disease about a year ago, wrote a letter to Congress urging increased funding for research. The pancreas is a large organ that secretes enzymes that aid digestion and hormones that help regulate the metabolism of sugars. While cancer of the pancreas is not as common as other cancers, it is particularly virulent, says Dr. Armando Sardi, director of the Institute for Cancer Care and head of surgical oncology at Mercy Medical Center.

If we don't hire Phil Regan today, some body else is going to get him!" "Forget Davey Johnson. Tell him to take his Manager of the Year award and don't let the door hit him on the way out!"

A top executive at the Gaithersburg drugmaker MedImmune Inc. has left - the latest change for a company some view as a prime takeover target. In a filing yesterday with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the company said it had agreed to terminate without cause the employment of Armando Anido, executive vice president for sales and marketing.
