Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether early recurrence after curative resection of ductal pancreatic adenocarcinoma can be explained by either dissemination of cancer cells during intraoperative tumour manipulation, post-operative systemic immune suppression, alteration of biological properties of circulating cancer cells or a combination of these.
