2b), which may be explained by higher fatality of cancers occurring in elderly as well as deterioration of immune functions in this group of patients [21]. The greatest determinant of cancer mortality is the site of the tumor and its stage at diagnosis. A five-year survival of less than 10 % in patients with pancreatic, liver, esophageal, and lung cancers warrants the need for novel, more efficacious therapeutic modalities. In other words, more than 90 % of patients with these fatal cancers will be deceased in only 5 years.
