The aim of this study was to determine the utility of detecting methylated ppENK and pi6 in pancreatic juice by methylation specific PCR as a marker of pancreatic adeno-carcinoma. Pancreatic juice samples were collected either intraoperatively, from 92 patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy for benign (n=20) and malignant periampullary disease (n = 72) or endoscopically (by duodenal aspiration after secretin infusion), from 13 patients undergoing investigation for pancreatic disease… CONTINUE READING
