A Prospective Study of Human Bile and Molecular Predictors of Biliary Malignancy Risk


The specific aim of this study is to establish a repository of human bile to serve as a
resource for studies looking at molecular predictors of biliary tract cancer. The
development of fluid based biomarkers will enable early diagnosis in at-risk individuals
with a recognized risk factor for cholangiocarcinoma, as well as provide surveillance
mechanisms for screening populations where biliary tract cancer has a high incidence.
