Further epidemiological research that includes a greater number of pancreatic cancer cases and continued follow-up of ongoing cohorts will undoubtedly increase our understanding of human pancreatic cancer. Specific research on dietary and environmental determinants and the molecular epidemiology of sporadic pancreatic cancer, including the comprehensive study of gene-environment interactions, will broaden our understanding of disease pathways and mechanisms and may have relevance for other exposure-related cancers. Elucidating pathways of pancreatic carcinogenesis will one day aid in prevention and therapy for this deadly disease.
