O’Reilly, MD, reviews the molecular pathogenesis and genetics of pancreatic cancer, and outcomes for different subsets of patients; talks about identifying patients who should be referred for management to a high-volume treatment center; and discusses the importance of clinical trial participation that takes into account the patient treatment goals, as well as identifying patient subgroups that may differentially benefit from certain types of therapies – ie, moving toward precision medicine in this disease.
