Pancreatic adenocarcinoma: Clinical practice guidelines in oncology


Journal Article (Review)

Overall, in view of the relatively high likelihood of a poor outcome for patients with all stages of pancreatic cancer, the panel recommends that investigational options be considered in all phases of disease management. Specific palliative measures are recommended for patients with advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma characterized by biliary or gastric obstruction, severe abdominal pain, or other tumor-associated manifestations of the disease. © JNCCN - Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
