Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas (PDACs) are found in more than 85% of patients with pancreatic cancer and with 5-year survival of less than 10%. Effective treatment may be radical surgery, which is hampered by rapid relapse. Therefore, our aim was to compare DNA sequence alterations in patients with short and long survival to evaluate if confirmed DNA alterations predict short postoperative survival.
