PREDICT: PANCREATIC DISEASE COHORT. A Registry and Biospecimen Bank to Better Understand Pancreatic Disease

The specific aims of this project are to create a registry, as well as a blood and a tissue bank for individuals with and at high-risk for pancreatic cancer. The personal data derived from the registry, correlated with biological information derived from the tissue specimens will allow for future investigative studies of pancreatic cancer etiology and tumor biology.

Are you Eligible? (Inclusion Criteria)

Patients determined to be at high-risk for pancreatic cancer, i.e:

  • Personal or family history of pancreatic cancer or other associated syndromes (Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, familial pancreatic cancer syndrome, familial breast cancer syndrome, hereditary pancreatitis, familial atypical multiple mole melanoma, others)
  • Be a member of a family with genetically determined cancer predisposition syndrome
  • Personal or family history of early onset gastrointestinal malignancy (younger than 50 years)
  • Family history of two or more individuals with cancer, (at least one of which is a gastrointestinal malignancy)
  • Personal or family history of multiple primary cancers, (at least one of which is gastrointestinal primary)
