Pancreatic and biliary cancers have a dismal prognosis and biomarkers for their early detection and differential diagnosis are urgently needed. Complementary proteomic strategies are being used to identify candidate markers using a unique set of serum samples that pre-date disease diagnosis and these tested alongside existing markers to improve detection.
