Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to compare the two approaches for monitoring pancreatic cysts. The study doctors want to compare more frequent monitoring vs less frequent monitoring in order to learn which monitoring method leads to better outcome for patients with pancreatic cysts.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pancreatic Carcinoma Procedure: Computed Tomography Procedure: Endoscopic Ultrasound Procedure: Magnetic Resonance Imaging Other: Quality-of-Life Assessment Other: Questionnaire Administration Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To compare the rates of unfavorable clinical outcomes in the two arms.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To compare rates of major surgical morbidity and/or mortality between arms. II. To compare pancreatic cancer incidence and all-cause mortality across arms. III. Compare institutional (direct) costs. IV. Compare healthcare utilization of imaging, invasive testing, surgical, and other procedures across the two surveillance arms.

V. Compare patient (out-of-pocket and other indirect) costs. VI. Describe diagnostic test and treatment pathways by arm. VII. Compare patient reports of quality of life (QOL), situational anxiety. VIII. Compare patient report of financial distress. IX. Compare rates of non-adherence by arm assignment. X. To evaluate and compare the predictive performance of known and future biomarkers for dysplasia or cancer.

EXPLORATORY OBJECTIVE:

I. To evaluate and compare the predictive accuracy of known and future radiomic markers for dysplasia and pancreatic cancer.

OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 arms.

ARM A (LOW INTENSITY SURVEILLANCE): Patients undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) at the beginning of the trial and again in 1 year. Following the first year, patients with no abnormalities repeat MRI or CT every 2 years. Patients with positive imaging features on MRI and CT at 1 or 2 years and with negative endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), repeat MRI or CT in 1 year. Patients with negative imaging repeat MRI or CT in 2 years.

ARM B (HIGH INTENSITY SURVEILLANCE): Patients undergo MRI or CT. Patients with 1-2 cm cyst undergo MRI or CT every 6 months for 1 year, then every 12 months for 2 years, and then every 24 months thereafter. Patients with 2-3 cm cyst undergo EUS within 6 months, and if EUS is negative, patients repeat MRI or CT in 1 year. If second EUS is negative, patients undergo alternate MRI or CT and EUS every 12 months. Patients with cyst > 3 cm undergo EUS within 6 months, and if EUS is negative, patients undergo alternate MRI or CT with EUS every 3-6 months.

After completion of imaging procedures, patients are followed up for 5 years from the date of registration .

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Occurrence of an "unfavorable" outcome [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Defined as a composite of: (1) any pancreatic cancer without surgery; (2) unresectable pancreatic cancer or cancer > T1a, N0 at surgery, and (3) benign disease at surgery will be approached from the intent-to-treat perspective. Time to the first occurrence of the primary endpoint will measured from randomization. Survival analysis methods will be used to estimate and compare distributions of time to an unfavorable event between the study arms. In particular Kaplan-Meier estimates will be developed for each arm and a log rank test will be used to compare the two arms.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Surgical and all-cause mortality [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Rates of major surgical morbidity and/or mortality will be estimated and compared across arms. All-cause mortality will be estimated and compared between the arms using log rank tests.

  2. Major surgical morbidity [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Rates of major surgical morbidity and/or mortality will be estimated and compared across arms.

  3. Pancreatic cancer incidence [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Pancreatic-cancer incidence and pancreatic cancer specific mortality will be estimated and compared between the arms using log rank tests.

  4. Healthcare utilization of imaging, invasive testing, surgical, and other procedures using information collected from sites. [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Will compare between two arms.

  5. Patient (out-of-pocket and other indirect) costs collected from patient surveys [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Will compare between two arms.

  6. Patient reports of quality of life [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Will be assessed by Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System10. Will compare between arms. Longitudinal regression modelling will be completed to account for the repeated assessments over time.

  7. Patient reports of situational anxiety [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Will be assessed by Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System-Anxiety short form. Will compare between arms.

  8. Patient report of financial distress collected through patient surveys [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Will compare between arms.

  9. Rates of non-adherence [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Will compare rates of non-adherence by arm assignment.

  10. Biomarker analysis from collected samples to compare the predictive performance of known and future biomarkers for dysplasia or cancer [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Will evaluate and compare the predictive performance of known and future biomarkers for dysplasia or cancer.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Predictive accuracy of radiomic markers for dysplasia and pancreatic cancer [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Will evaluate and compare the predictive accuracy of known and future radiomic markers for dysplasia and pancreatic cancer.
