Statin use and reduced risk of biliary tract cancers in the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink.

To evaluate the association between statin use and risk of biliary tract cancers (BTC).

Loss of BAP1 expression is associated with genetic mutation and can predict outcomes in gallbladder cancer.

BRCA-1 associated protein (BAP1) is a de-ubiquitinating enzyme that regulates gene expression. Recently, the BAP1 mutation and its involvement in cancer survival have been reported in a range of tumor...

Case Report: Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms of the Biliary Tract.

The present case report describes intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the biliary tract (IPMN-BT), a rare neoplasm of the biliary tract that is described as the biliary counterpart of intraduc...

Analysis of incidence, mortality and survival for pancreatic and biliary tract cancers across Europe, with assessment of influence of revised European age standardisation on estimates.

Pancreatic (PC) and biliary tract (BTC) cancers have higher incidence and mortality in Europe than elsewhere. We analysed time-trends in PC/BTC incidence, mortality, and survival across Europe. Since ...

Biliary Tract Cancer: State of the Art and potential role of DNA Damage Repair.

Biliary tract cancers (BTCs), including cholangiocarcinoma, gallbladder cancer and ampullary cancers, are poor-prognosis malignancies. Most patients are diagnosed with advanced disease, when treatment...

Irinotecan and Capecitabine as Second-line Treatment for Advanced/Metastatic Biliary Tract Cancers

Biliary tract cancers that progress after first line treatment can be difficult to treat. There is a great need for an effective, tolerable, easy to administer second-line regimen. Previou...

Trial of Infusional FOLFIRINOX in First Line Treatment of Advanced Biliary Tract Cancers

This study is to Evaluate the response rate and toxicity profile of infusional 5 fluorouracil, leucovorin, oxaliplatin and irinotecan (FOLFIRINOX) in 1st line treatment of advanced biliary...

Study of Nivolumab in Patients With Advanced Refractory Biliary Tract Cancers

This research study is designed to see if a drug called Nivolumab is effective in treating patients with advanced refractory biliary tract cancers. Nivolumab has been approved by the U.S. ...

ABC-08: Phase Ib Trial of Acelarin in Combination With Cisplatin in Locally Advanced/ Metastatic Biliary Tract Cancers

The purpose of this study is to determine the recommended phase II dose, and to assess the safety of acelarin in combination with cisplatin in patients with locally advanced/ metastatic bi...

Identification of Prognostic Gene Mutations in Biliary Tract Cancer Using Whole Genome Sequencing

The purpose of this study is to investigate genetic mutations affecting prognosis using whole genome sequencing in patients with biliary tract cancer.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer in the BILIARY TRACT including the BILE DUCTS and the GALLBLADDER.

Abnormal passage in any organ of the biliary tract or between biliary organs and other organs.

Diseases in any part of the BILIARY TRACT including the BILE DUCTS and the GALLBLADDER.

Chronic inflammatory disease of the BILIARY TRACT. It is characterized by fibrosis and hardening of the intrahepatic and extrahepatic biliary ductal systems leading to bile duct strictures, CHOLESTASIS, and eventual BILIARY CIRRHOSIS.
