Of all common malignancies, pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate. These dismal survival results could be improved by developing successful screening and prevention strategies. Determining risk factors (genetic, environmental and geneenvironment interactions) and improved detection technologies are critically important. Patients with chronic pancreatitis have a markedly increased risk of pancreatic cancer compared with the general population, but this risk is difficult to assess.
