Pancreatic cancer-associated diabetes mellitus (PCDM) is a paraneoplastic phenomenon characterized by worsening hyperglycaemia and weight loss. Galectin-3 and S100A9, mediators of PCDM, have pro-inflammatory functions and might thereby induce systemic inflammation and cachexia. We aimed to examine whether PCDM directly mediates cachexia.
