Özet

Purpose: Pancreatic cancer occurs rarely in humans, and it is one of the most fatal five cancer types with very poor prognosis. Early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is difficult due to late presentation of symptoms. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the utility of IGFBP-3 and IGF-1 in early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and in monitoring treatment response and contribute to the studies conducted in this regard.
