Welcome to the website of the PACYFIC study


Pancreatic cysts (fluid collections) are common. At present, lifelong surveillance (regular check-up) is recommended for these cysts, although nobody knows if this is really necessary. The PACYFIC study wants to investigate the true value of this follow-up policy.

 .

To answer this question, 5000 people from all over the world will be followed for 10 years. We will only record the outcome of the check-ups, and not interfere with how cysts are followed or treated. The study is coordinated by the Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

 .

On this website you can find further information regarding the PACYFIC study. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our study coordinator.


Yours sincerely, the PACYFIC research team
