The Cancer of the Pancreas Screening-5

Brief Description Of Study

The specific Aims of CAPS5 will be: Aim #1: To evaluate pancreatic fluid mutations and circulating pancreatic epithelial cells as accurate markers of neoplasia by comparing their prevalence in cases with sporadic pancreatic neoplasia to healthy and disease controls. Aim #2: To compare the prevalence of pancreatic fluid mutations and circulating pancreatic epithelial cells among a prospective cohort of individuals with sporadic pancreatic cysts undergoing pancreatic surveillance.
