The levels of tumor markers in pancreatic neuroendocrine carcinoma (PNEC) are unknown, and imaging findings of PNEC and pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) have overlaps. In this study, we show the tumor markers in PNEC and evaluate their values for distinguishing PNEC from PDAC.

Neuroendocrine tumors of the ovary are rare and of uncertain histogenesis. They may be primary or metastatic. Pathogenesis of ovarian carcinomas remains unknown. We report the case of an ovarian large...
Pancreatic neuroendocrine carcinoma is a rare aggressive tumor commonly harboring TP53 and RB1 alterations and lacking neuroendocrine related genetic changes such as mutations in MEN1 and ATRX/DAXX. L...
Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare and aggressive primary neuroendocrine tumor of the skin, with a high propensity for local, regional and distant spread . However, distant metastasis of MCC to the...
To evaluate the utility of volumetric histogram analysis of monoexponential and non-Gaussian distribution DWI models for discriminating pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) and neuroendocrine tumor...
Synchronous tumors represent a very small portion of pancreatic tumors. Although there is a higher incidence of secondary malignant neoplasms (SMN) in patients with history of Wilms tumor (WT), pancre...
Safety and Tolerability of Everolimus as Second-line Treatment in Poorly Differentiated Neuroendocrine Carcinoma / Neuroendocrine Carcinoma G3 (WHO 2010) and Neuroendocrine Tumor G3 - an Investigator Initiated Phase II Study
The study is designed as an open-label, prospective, single arm, multicenter study of everolimus in histologically confirmed, neuroendocrine carcinoma G3 /neuroendocrine tumor G3 after fai...
Investigator determined the factor of surgery associated with the survival of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor.
The purpose of this study is to see if we can use 68Gallium- positron emission tomography and computer tomography (PET/CT) scans using NETSPOT® (Advanced Accelerator Applications USA, Inc...
Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and carcinomas account for 10-15 % of all pancreatic incidentalomas. The management of pancreatic NETs depends on tumor stage and on presence or not of hormona...
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of everolimus in the treatment of advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (NET) not responsive to cytotoxic chemotherapy. Al...
A group of carcinomas which share a characteristic morphology, often being composed of clusters and trabecular sheets of round "blue cells", granular chromatin, and an attenuated rim of poorly demarcated cytoplasm. Neuroendocrine tumors include carcinoids, small ("oat") cell carcinomas, medullary carcinoma of the thyroid, Merkel cell tumor, cutaneous neuroendocrine carcinoma, pancreatic islet cell tumors, and pheochromocytoma. Neurosecretory granules are found within the tumor cells. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
Carcinoma that arises from the PANCREATIC DUCTS. It accounts for the majority of cancers derived from the PANCREAS.
A carcinoma discovered by Dr. Margaret R. Lewis of the Wistar Institute in 1951. This tumor originated spontaneously as a carcinoma of the lung of a C57BL mouse. The tumor does not appear to be grossly hemorrhagic and the majority of the tumor tissue is a semifirm homogeneous mass. (From Cancer Chemother Rep 2 1972 Nov;(3)1:325) It is also called 3LL and LLC and is used as a transplantable malignancy.
A transplantable, poorly differentiated malignant tumor which appeared originally as a spontaneous breast carcinoma in a mouse. It grows in both solid and ascitic forms.
Tumors whose cells possess secretory granules and originate from the neuroectoderm, i.e., the cells of the ectoblast or epiblast that program the neuroendocrine system. Common properties across most neuroendocrine tumors include ectopic hormone production (often via APUD CELLS), the presence of tumor-associated antigens, and isozyme composition.
Pancreatitis Acute pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas caused by the release of activated pancreatic enzymes. Common triggers are biliary tract disease and chronic heavy alcohol intake. Diagnosis is based on clinical presentation...
The pancreas secretes a number of important hormones into the digestive tract and the blood stream. Cancers are most commonly exocrine than endocrine (neuroendocrine) tumors. Functional tumors secrete hormones; Insulinoma, Gastrinoma, Somatostatinoma, VI...
