Additional comments NKR 2016: 1.432 diagnoses alvleesklierkanker stadium 4. 5% wordt geschat BRCA mutaties te hebben (72). Vrijwel iedereen komt uiteindelijk in een gemetastaseerd stadium maar niet iedereen wordt behandeld, inschatting van de werkgroep: 30-50 patiënten per jaar. Het is de vraag of er een richtlijn zal komen betreffende het screenen op een BRCA mutatie.
