abstract

  • Two novel biomarkers have very high sensitivity and specificity in the diagnosis of PDA in RSs. S100P has slightly lower sensitivity and higher specificity of PDA than XIAP in EUS-FNA specimens. We recommend using both biomarkers as cytological diagnostic adjuncts, especially in difficult cases of well-differentiated PDA versus reactive ductal epithelium.
