ABSTRACT
Editorial. Comments on the dilemma in classification of possible precursors of pancreatic cancer between pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasia and intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasm. Issues related to the origination of ductal adenocarcinoma; Reference to several studies related to ductal carcinoma; Two groups of epithelial cells of the exocrine pancreas.
