The interaction between miR‑148a and DNMT1 suppresses cell migration and invasion by reactivating tumor suppressor genes in pancreatic cancer.

DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism that cells use to control gene expression, which serves an important role in tumorigenesis. DNA methyltransferase 1 (DNMT1) is responsible for the maintenance of the pattern of DNA methylation. Overexpression of DNMT1 is observed in numerous malignant tumors, including pancreatic cancer, and results in silencing of several key tumor suppressor genes (TSG...

Allergen‑removed Rhus verniciflua Stokes suppresses invasion and migration of pancreatic cancer cells through downregulation of the JAK/STAT and Src/FAK signaling pathways.

Pancreatic cancer is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. Due to drug resistance, and the high toxicity and adverse side effects of existing chemotherapeutic drugs, the current treatment of highly aggressive pancreatic cancer is considered inadequate. Allergen‑removed Rhus verniciflua Stokes (aRVS) has a strong antiproliferative effect in various cancer cells, and due to its lo...

Norepinephrine enhances cell viability and invasion, and inhibits apoptosis of pancreatic cancer cells in a Notch‑1‑dependent manner.

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the most aggressive types of cancer, which is associated with a poor prognosis due to complexities in prevention, early diagnosis and effective treatment. The lack of understanding regarding its induction and specific pro‑cancer mechanisms may contribute to its poor prognosis. The Notch‑1 pathway is widely considered to be a critical tumor‑pr...

Substrate accumulation and extracellular matrix remodelling promote persistent upper airway disease in mucopolysaccharidosis patients on enzyme replacement therapy.

Mucopolysaccharide diseases are a group of lysosomal storage disorders caused by deficiencies of hydrolase enzymes, leading to pathological glycosaminoglycan accumulation. A number of mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) types are characterised by severe airway disease, the aetiology of which is poorly understood. There is ongoing evidence of significant clinical disease in the long-term despite disease mo...

Prognostic value of canine pancreatic lipase immunoreactivity and lipase activity in dogs with gastric dilatation-volvulus.

This study evaluated the association between a selection of candidate predictor variables, including the elevation of specific pancreatic enzymes, and outcome in dogs with gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV). Twenty-two dogs with gastric dilatation-volvulus were included, being classified as survivors or non-survivors based on the final outcome. Dogs with intestinal obstruction (n = 16) were selecte...

Prognostic value of circulating cell-free DNA in patients with pancreatic cancer: A systemic review and meta-analysis.

Because of the deep research about tumorigenesis mechanism, the cognition of cancer has been transferred to molecular level from morphology. Previous articles reported a potential connection between circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA) and prognosis of pancreatic cancer. A total of 18 related articles including 1243 patients were enrolled to access the relationship between cfDNA and prognosis of panc...

Maximizing the Use of Scoring Systems in the Prediction of Outcomes in Acute Pancreatitis.

No single classification system has so far effectively predicted the severity for Acute Pancreatitis (AP). This study compares the effectiveness of classification systems: Original Atlanta (OAC), Revised Atlanta (RAC), Determinant based classification (DBC), PANC 3, Harmless AP Score (HAPS), Japanese Severity Score (JSS), Symptoms Nutrition Necrosis Antibiotics and Pain (SNNAP), and Beside Index o...

Early Loss of Forkhead Transcription Factor, O Subgroup, Member 1 Protein in the Development of Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma.

Forkhead transcription factor, O subgroup, member 1 (FOXO1) is a regulatory protein that plays an essential role in cellular homeostasis. A biological function as a tumor suppressor has been proposed. Here, we examined FOXO1 expression in human pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) and its precursor lesions.

Physical examination to screen for peripheral artery disease in a defined Primary Care population: A diagnostic accuracy study.

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is an underdiagnosed prevalent disease which implies high cardiovascular risk. Professionals usually depend on physical examination to screen for PAD.

Ten-Year Native Liver Survival Rate After Laparoscopic and Open Kasai Portoenterostomy for Biliary Atresia.

Laparoscopic Kasai portoenterostomy (LKP) remains controversial in the management of infants with biliary atresia (BA). There are no data reporting the 10-year native liver survival rate after LKP. The study aims to present the 10-year native liver survival rate after LKP and complications in native liver survivors after Kasai portoenterostomy (KP).
