Research fellow Ananya Malhotra and her colleagues have developed an artificial intelligence program to identify people at high risk for pancreatic cancer based on symptoms previously associated with pancreatic cancer as well as others that occurred frequently in pancreatic cancer patients' health records. The algorithm predicted pancreatic cancer up to 20 months before diagnosis in a pilot study involving people younger than 60, and it could be used to refine screening protocols.
