Biospecimen Resource for Pancreas Research, a Data & Tissue Bank (Also Known as a Bio-repository, Bio-bank, Data & Tissue Database, Data & Tissue Registry, Etc.) to Help Advance Research in Pancreas Disease
- To collect clinical data and family histories and blood and/or tissue samples from
patients diagnosed with pancreatic diseases, including pancreatic cancer, for use in
- To collect information regarding food preparation and intake in these patients.
- To make available to researchers medical data and biospecimens to enable them to
develop better ways to screen people at risk for pancreatic conditions, including
- To investigate genes or substances that increase susceptibility of developing
- To find agents that may help prevent, treat, or cure these conditions.
- To learn whether inherited factors increase the risk of pancreatic diseases, pancreatic
cancer, or other cancers.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients complete two 1-hour surveys assessing health, clinical and family history of
pancreatic conditions including cancer, and food preparation and intake. Patients also
complete a 15- to 30-minute follow up survey at 6 months and 1 year to assess health, health
practices, and family history. A review of the patient's medical information is obtained
from the medical record.
Blood samples are collected for future research studies. Oral cells and stool samples may
also be collected for future studies.
Observational Model: Case-Only, Time Perspective: Prospective
Collection of clinical data, health and family histories by survey
baseline enrollment, 6 months, 12 months
