PANCAID video series

In our PANCAID video series, we’ll answer some burning questions about our project.

#1 What is PANCAID?

Join us for an insightful interview with the minds behind PANCAID as they unveil the essence of the project. Meet the project coordinators, discover what PANCAID is and how we aim to propel early detection in pancreatic cancer. Gain insight into the project’s scope, and how it unites experts from various countries and fields. Explore PANCAID’s main output – a minimally invasive blood test to detect pancreatic cancer. Learn from the coordinators about the significance of this approach and how the project aims to achieve it by detecting tumor-related components in the bloodstream through liquid biopsy.

#2 What is Liquid Biopsy?

The biggest challenge in the management of pancreatic cancer is the inability to diagnose it in time. In PANCAID, we focus on the establishment of a blood test for early detection of PDAC via liquid biopsy. But what is liquid biopsy, exactly? Find out in this interview with PANCAID member Prof. Catherine Alix-Panabières, who is professor of cancerology at the University Hospital Center of Montpellier, France, Director of the Laboratory of Rare Human Circulating Cells, and happens to have discovered the concept of liquid biopsy and circulating tumour cells in cancer patients together with Klaus Pantel in 2010.
