Thanks Mario. Keep in touch. I’m in the USA. I believe you’re in the UK? If you hear of anything ground breaking over there as far as pancreatic, please let me know. Carl

Yes I am indeed over "sunny" London! The 3 topics I am following closely are

1. EUS/RFA (ablation of the cysts) . My consultant was against it due to pancreatitis risks
2. New urine test that can detect early PC. I have contacted the university and they informed me unfortunately that it does not cover IPMNs
3. Similar as 2 but new blood test that can early detect up to 30 cancers and PC is one of them

TBH 2 and 3 are not my focus as PC and IPMN are different ball games but 1 is something that I am very very curious about. I know that there are numerous studies/trials taking place in the USA as well in regards EUS/RFA

Feel free to contact me anytime as we are here to help each other and kick IPMN butt
