Reshaping preoperative treatment of pancreatic cancer in the era of precision medicine.

The molecular diversity of pancreatic cancer and its influence on prognosis and treatment response, combined with the failure of "all-comer" treatments to significantly impact on patient outcomes, requires a paradigm shift towards a genomic-driven approach. This is particularly important in the preoperative, potentially curable setting, where a personalized treatment allocation has the substantial potential to reduce pancreatic cancer mortality.
