PancreOS – Pancreatic cancer overall survival registry in Europe, 2015

In 2015, the Spanish Cooperative Group TTD – Tratamiento de los Tumores Digestivos (Digestive Tract Tumors Treatment) started to execute a pilot registry called PancreOS, aiming at collecting a comprehensive set of prospective data from pancreatic cancer patients at any stage of the disease.
The pilot project led in Spain has been a good example of what can be done at EU level for pancreatic cancer registries.
PCE endorsed the initiative and continues to expand it to more countries all across Europe.

PancreOS – Pancreatic cancer overall survival registry in Europe, 2021

Pancreatic cancer is the only cancer with mortality on the rise in both sexes. The late diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is notably due to the lack of identified biomarkers, genes or imaging modalities. Improved survival rates depend on improved knowledge of the disease, increasing the ability to diagnose it earlier. If advances in pancreatic cancer research are to be made and the commitments of Member States to effective cancer control fulfilled, then registries on pancreatic cancer are a prerequisite.
