Cyst Fluid Analysis in Pancreatic Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

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. Clin Cancer Res; 22(20); 4966-7. ©2016 AACRSee related article by Hata et al., p. 5141.
