Pancreatic cancer is among the most serious human neoplasia and the most difficult to treat.

Most patients present at diagnosis a non resectable, locally advanced or metastatic disease, with a median survival of 12 month.

The aim of this study is the identification of diagnosis biomarkers, predictive of the therapeutic response.

This project investigate the use of molecular analyses applied to pancreatic tumor cells collected by microbiopsy under ultrasound-endoscopy, and blood cells.
