    Trial Summary

    Pancreatic cancer cells have DNA mutations that are not present in normal cells. For some people, cancer-specific DNA can be found circulating in their bloodstream after they had surgery to remove their pancreatic cancer. This tumour-specific DNA may be evidence that some cancer cells have escaped before the pancreatic cancer was removed. The DYNAMIC-Pancreas study aims to see whether a test called “circulating tumour DNA” can be used to decide the type and duration of post-surgery chemotherapy.
