Details and patient eligibility

About

This is a Norwegian prospective observational study that evaluates the resectability rate in patients with borderline resectable and locally advanced pancreatic cancer who received neoadjuvant chemotherapy in a population based cohort. Eligible patients are treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy possibly followed by surgical exploration and resection. All Norwegian centres performing pancreatic surgery have agreed to collaborate in this trial. The assignment of the medical intervention is not at the discretion of the investigator, but follow the national Norwegian guidelines regarding diagnostic work up, oncological and surgical treatment and follow up.
