Spectrometry Model as a Diagnostic Marker for Pancreatic Cancer

Japanese researchers including Yoshida and colleagues from the Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine used a specific lab method (gas chromatography mass spectrometry) on certain serum metabolite levels in patients with known pancreatitis, diagnosed pancreatic cancer (adenocarcinoma), and healthy subject volunteers. The results of this study were published this month in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers […]
