Cyst Fluid Analysis in Pancreatic Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms.

Pancreatic intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN) are surgically treatable cancer precursors, if high-risk features can be identified. Analysis of proteins and genes in cyst fluid helps diagnostically, but prior biomarkers had limited ability to detect high-risk cases. Cyst fluid telomerase activity may be a useful biomarker for high-risk IPMNs… (More)
