In this abstract we review the pancreatic cancer epigenetic mark up and the impact of related therapies on preclinical and clinical outcome. We explore the potentials of combination therapies with targeted drugs in a protocol called multitargeted epigenetic therapies (MTET) with a specific focus on intratumoral hypoxia and angiogenesis. We share our invitro data as well as a review of case studies of advanced pancreatic cancer treated with such protocol and we conclude that such combination
