Stay informed on the project!
PANCAID is an international research consortium aiming to develop a minimally invasive blood test using liquid biopsy to detect pancreatic cancer to facilitate early detection of the cancer and its precursors. With 16 partners + 1 associated partner from eight countries, the project has received funding for five years to potentially revolutionize current pancreatic cancer diagnosis methods and improve patient outcomes.Learn More
PANCAID strives to provide a minimally invasive blood test using a comprehensive panel of liquid biopsy diagnostics (LBx) for early detection of pancreatic cancer and its precursor lesions.Read on
Why it matters
Pancreatic cancer is a malignant neoplasm that originates in the cells of the pancreas, an organ located in the abdominal cavity behind the stomach. It is known to be one of the most aggressive and deadly types of cancer, with a high mortality rate. Pancreatic cancer is often difficult to detect in its early stages, as it tends to show minimal or no symptoms until it reaches advanced stages. This makes it challenging to diagnose and treat, and contributes to its poor prognosis.Discover more
