Abstract / Description of output

Few patients with pancreatic cancer are eligible for resection. In the remainder, estimation of prognosis is important to optimise various aspects of care, including palliation of biliary obstruction and trial of chemotherapy. The aim is to evaluate the prognostic significance of clinical and laboratory variables in patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer.
