Epigenetic Markers for Pancreatic Carcinogenesis
Epigenetic Markers for Pancreatic Carcinogenesis Columbia University Medical Center
Secondary data analysis to be conducted within the prospective observational study, also known as the, PREDICT cohort (IRB #AAAA6154) protocol. In this analysis we will examine the association of pancreatic adenocarcinoma with epigenetics and modifiable factors (e.g., diet, lifestyle) using previously collected samples and questionnaire data. Our analysis will examine the association between DNA methylation (epigenetics) and pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
