Multicenter Study of Pancreatic Cancer Etiology

The Pancreatic Cancer Investigation: Finding Causes (PACIFIC) study is a large, comprehensive case-control study with recruitment from two HMOs that have infrastructure to support ultra-rapid case identification during diagnostic evaluation. Led by Dr. Margaret Mandelson (GHC), Dr. John Potter (Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center), and Dr. Stephen Van Den Eeden (KPNC), this study’s methods allow enrollment of patients who represent the full spectrum of disease, including those typically omitted from prior epidemiologic research because of death shortly following diagnosis.
