Progression of Chronic Pancreatitis to Pancreatic Cancer: Is There a Role of Gene Mutations as a Screening Tool?

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Early detection of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma still remains a challenge. Patients with chronic pancreatitis (CP) have a markedly increased risk of pancreatic cancer. Mutations in oncogenes and/or tumor suppressor genes play a role in development of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. This study assessed mutations in KRAS and p53 gene in blood… (More)
