Prognostic and therapeutic value of EUS-guided biopsies for histologic examination in patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma.

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The present research is aimed at evaluating the prognostic factors and the therapeutic value of genetic analysis performed on biopsy samples obtained under EUS guidance in patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma. To this end, biopsy samples obtained under EUS guidance in patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma who subsequently had undergone pancreatic resection will be evaluated for: (1) tumor grading; (2) multigenic mutational analysis performed using next generation sequencing (NGS) to determine the chemiotherapeutic regimen that the patient will respond the most. These analyses will also be performed on surgical specimens to determine the degree of reliability and reproducibility.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
