INTRODUCTION Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN), first reported in 1982 as "mucin-producing tumor" by Kazuhiko Ohashi of Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research, is a well recognised category of pancreatic neoplasms characterised by intraductal, often papillary proliferation of neoplastic mucinous cells, which produce thick mucinous secretion leading to cystic dilatation of the pancreatic ducts (1,2).

PDAC precursors comprise intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm, mucinous cystic neoplasm, and pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PanIN) (3).
The team led by Dr Hwyda Arafat, associate professor of Surgery at Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University, analyzed the MCP-1 levels in serum samples obtained from patients with confirmed PDA or intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN).
24) Of interest, these cancers may progress through an intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) precursor pathway.
6) Pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasias are not the only precursors of invasive pancreatic cancer: Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms and mucinous cystic neoplasms, for example, are also preinvasive stages of carcinoma, (7) but PanINs are the most common precursor of conventional ductal adenocarcinomas of the pancreas, and they are the subject of this review.
MUCUS-PRODUCING CYSTIC NEOPLASMS Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) and mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN) represent the mucusproducing cystic neoplasms.
