Oncology Peer Review On-The-Go: Characterization of Blood-Based Molecular Profiling in Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

Christine Chung, DO, spoke with CancerNetwork® about the latest research from the journal ONCOLOGY® about implications of blood-based molecular markers in pancreatic adenocarcinoma.

This week, CancerNetwork® spoke with Christine Chung, DO, of the Swedish Medical Center in Englewood, Colorado, about “Characterization of Blood-Based Molecular Profiling in Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma,” a retrospective review published in the journal ONCOLOGY®.

Chung detailed this research, which characterizes the mutational landscape of patients with metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma who received blood-based molecular profiling. A total of 77 consecutive patients were included in the analysis. She also spoke about pancreatic adenocarcinoma, the study’s main findings, and how this research can inform future treatment decision making moving forward.
