Self-expandable metal stents (SEMS) are a widely accepted biliary endoprosthesis for patients with unresectable malignant biliary obstruction. Here, we identified predictors for the occlusion of SEMS in unresectable pancreatic cancer patients with biliary tract obstruction.

To investigate the incidence and clinical characteristics of acute pancreatitis following percutaneous insertion of metallic biliary stents in patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer. The clinica...
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of nab paclitaxel (nab-P) plus gemcitabine (GEM) in elderly patients ≥ 75 years old with unresectable pancreatic cancer (PC) compared with younger patients.
To identify demographic characteristics, comorbidities, medical procedures, and prescription drug use that may act as predictors of underlying pancreatic cancer in acute pancreatitis.
Several reports have demonstrated the efficacy of temporary, fully covered, metallic stents (FCMSs) for resolving refractory pancreatic ductal strictures caused by chronic pancreatitis . However, to o...
Hereditary pancreatic cancer continues to pose challenges to providers, as well as to patients and their families. Pancreatic cancer has a poor prognosis, and individuals with family histories of panc...
This study is a single-arm clinical trial of irreversible electroporation (IRE) for the treatment of unresectable locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC). The aim of the study is to eva...
Postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) remains one of the most harmful complications after pancreatic resection. Some studies have indicated that endoscopic pancreatic stenting was effect...
Does pancreas enzyme replacement (PERT) decrease weight loss and improve quality of life in patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer?
To determine the antitumor activity of MKC-1 in patients with unresectable or metastatic pancreatic cancer who have failed at least one prior chemotherapy regimen in either the neoadjuvant...
The aim of this phase II study is to assess the efficacy and safety of sequentially integrated treatment of FOLFIRINOX or Gemcitabine-Abraxane and SBRT in patients with unresectable pancre...
C-type lectins that restrict growth of bacteria in the intestinal epithelia and have bactericidal activity against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. They also regulate proliferation and differentiation of KERATINOCYTES following injury. Human pancreatitis-associated protein-1 (Reg3a) is overexpressed by pancreatic ACINAR CELLS in patients with CHRONIC PANCREATITIS. It is also highly expressed by pancreatic, bladder, and gastrointestinal cancer cells and may serve as a diagnostic biomarker.
Tumors or cancer of the PANCREAS. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: GLUCAGON from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (INSULINOMA).
Star-shaped, myofibroblast-like cells located in the periacinar, perivascular, and periductal regions of the EXOCRINE PANCREAS. They play a key role in the pathobiology of FIBROSIS; PANCREATITIS; and PANCREATIC CANCER.
A 36-amino acid pancreatic hormone that is secreted mainly by endocrine cells found at the periphery of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS and adjacent to cells containing SOMATOSTATIN and GLUCAGON. Pancreatic polypeptide (PP), when administered peripherally, can suppress gastric secretion, gastric emptying, pancreatic enzyme secretion, and appetite. A lack of pancreatic polypeptide (PP) has been associated with OBESITY in rats and mice.
Extracts prepared from pancreatic tissue that may contain the pancreatic enzymes or other specific uncharacterized factors or proteins with specific activities. PANCREATIN is a specific extract containing digestive enzymes and used to treat pancreatic insufficiency.
A stent is a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to other parts of your body. A stent is placed in an artery as part of a procedure called angioplasty. &...
