Blood Markers of Early Pancreas Cancer

Prevention

Blood Markers of Early Pancreas Cancer

The purpose of this study is to try to find markers of early pancreatic cancer for screening for individuals at higher-than-average risk, expedite the diagnosis in individuals with symptoms, and substantially improve an individual's chance of surviving the disease.

Preliminary Evaluation of Screening for Pancreatic Cancer in Patients with an Inherited Genetic Risk Due to a BRCA1, BRCA2, PALB2 or ATM Mutation

Improved screening for pancreatic cancer in high-risk groups, such as people with an inherited BRCA1, BRCA2, ATM, or PALB2 mutation, may help find cancer early and improve survival rates. People enrolled in this study will undergo screening using endoscopic ultrasound or MRI of the abdomen.

Research Study to Help Improve Family Communication About Inherited Mutations

The Ohio State University and FORCE want to understand if a family communication guide for people with BRCA mutations is helpful and if it’s also useful to have a video that you can text or email to family members that explains your BRCA mutation. We are currently looking for people between the ages of 18-80 who have mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2, have an active email address, and an internet capable device like a computer, tablet, or smartphone.  Participants will be asked to complete a total of 3 surveys.  Participants will be randomly assigned to either receive just the communication guide or the guide plus the sharable.  Each survey will take 10-15 minutes (the study could take up to 1.5 hours to complete depending on how much time you spend reviewing the study materials). 

You can get more information or ask to participate in the study by sending an email to: brcashare@osumc.edu.

Pancreatic Cancer Screening Study for High Risk People

Prevention

A Pancreatic Cancer Screening Study for High Risk Individuals

The purpose of this study is to screen and detect pancreatic cancer and precancer in people with either a strong family history of pancreatic cancer, or an inherited mutation associated with pancreatic cancer risk.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) will be used to screen for early stage pancreatic cancer. Participants will also be asked to donate a blood sample at specific intervals for the creation of a blood bank necessary for the development of a blood-based screening test for pancreatic cancer.
