Pathological and molecular evaluation of pancreatic neoplasms

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Pancreatic neoplasms are morphologically and genetically heterogeneous and include a wide variety of tumors ranging from benign to malignant with an extremely poor clinical outcome. Our understanding of these pancreatic neoplasms has improved significantly with recent advances in cancer sequencing. Awareness of molecular pathogenesis brings new opportunities for early detection, improved prognostication, and personalized gene-specific therapies. Here we review the pathological classification of pancreatic neoplasms from the molecular and genetic perspectives.
