Mayo Clinic Study Finds Further Association Between Diabetes and Pancreatic Cancer
Date:1/23/2008

previous study authored by Dr. Chari, only one in 125 patients over age 50 with new-onset diabetes will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Dr. Chari's team continues work in identifying the differences between pancreatic cancer-induced diabetes and regular type 2 diabetes. The goal of the research is to cost-effectively screen for pancreatic cancer using a blood test that can identify individuals who have new-onset diabetes and are more likely to have pancreatic cancer. This will allow for earlier detection and increased opportunity for successful surgical treatment.

Other members of the Mayo Clinic research team included Cynthia Leibson, Ph.D., Kari Rabe, Lawrence Timmons, Jeanine Ransom, Mariza de Andrade, Ph.D., and Gloria Petersen, Ph.D.

As part of this ongoing research, a clinical trial studying the role of high resolution secretin-enhanced CT scan to diagnose early pancreatic cancer in patients at high risk for pancreatic cancer is currently in progress at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Eligible participants must be 50 years or older, must have received a diagnosis of diabetes within the past two years, and must have at least one of the following: no family history of diabetes, abdominal discomfort or pain, weight loss, or elevated serum CA 19-9. For more information about eligibility requirements and the screening process for this study, please contact Theresa Nielson at (507) 538-2584.
