Pancreatic Cancer: French Clinical Practice Guidelines for Diagnosis, Treatment and Follow-Up (SNFGE, FFCD, GERCOR, UNICANCER, SFCD, SFED, SFRO, ACHBT, AFC)

This is a clinical practice guideline for patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). The guideline examines the screening, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of these patients, with recommendations separated based on extent of disease (i.e. operable PDAC, locally advanced PDAC, or metastatic PDAC). Diagnostic methods examined include imaging and the use of serum tumour markers such as carbohydrate 19-9 antigen (CA19-9), and various treatment options are also discussed, including surgery and chemotherapy.
