Now Enrolling: The EA2185 trial is comparing two standard methods to follow patients with non-cancerous cysts in the pancreas

This trial compares two common surveillance methods for people with at least one non-cancerous cyst in the pancreas, to measure which one leads to better outcomes. The study may also uncover findings that could predict the behavior of these cysts.
