    Régis Souche et al. Detection of soluble biomarkers of pancreatic cancer in endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration samples

    This pilot study of 58 patients with pancreatic masses shows that the preservation fluid remaining after processing of fine-needle aspiration samples for cytology is a rich source of proteins associated with pancreatic cancer, which can potentially be used for research on pancreatic cancer biomarkers and as a tool to aid pancreatic cancer diagnosis.
