abstract

  • Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN) are a distinct type of precursor lesions that cause about 5% of pancreatic adenocarcinoma (1, 2). Four-year survival rates of 40% to 75% are reported (3-7). There is currently no chemotherapy specifically approved for treating IPMNs. The number of IPMN cases has significantly increased over the last decade (8).
