Germline Genetic Testing in Unselected Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma (PDAC) Patients.

  • The study presents data on cases unselected for age at diagnosis or family history representing a typical population of pancreatic cancer patients that present for clinical care.
  • Pancreatic cancer predisposition associated with known syndromes such as HBOC or Lynch Syndrome account for a fraction of the potentially hereditary cases.
  • Current genetic testing criteria for pancreatic cancer may not be sensitive to the remaining fraction of hereditary cases that are related to genes such as ATM and CHEK2
