Description:

The purpose of the workshop on Pancreatitis-Diabetes-Pancreatic Cancer is to explore the known and suspected mechanisms for the increased risk for PDAC associated with CP and DM, to identify the prevalence of T3cDM in the overall DM population and to assess strategies to discriminate T3cDM from T2DM, to review the effects of anti-diabetic therapy on the development of PDAC, and to explore possible PDAC surveillance methods for T2DM and T3cDM patients. Participants will develop a series of opportunities and priorities that could inform further research efforts sponsored by both NIDDK and NCI.
