The authors demonstrated that post-therapy pathologic American Joint Committee on Cancer stage and the number of positive lymph nodes were independent prognostic factors for both disease-free and overall survival in a consecutive cohort of 240 patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) who received neoadjuvant chemoradiation followed by pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). Pathologic evaluation of PD specimen and post-therapy pathologic tumor staging remained the key factors in predicting clinical outcome in patients with PDAC who received neoadjuvant chemoradiation and subsequent PD.
