Pancreatic cancer (PC) is one of the most lethal cancers, with frequent local therapy resistance and dismal 5-year survival rate. To date, surgical resection remains to be the only treatment option of...
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...
We aimed to examine the association between acute pancreatitis, a potential early symptom of pancreatic cancer, and pancreatic cancer stage, treatment, and prognosis.
(Interleukin 17 Receptor Beta) IL17RB has been implicated in several malignancies. However, its role in the progression of and chemosensitivity in pancreatic cancer remains unknown. We aimed to determ...
The prognosis for nonmetastatic, primary pancreatic squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is thought to be poor compared with adenocarcinoma (AC); however, this is based on limited data. Additionally, the opt...
Evaluation of clinical response in terms of resectability of patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy plus stereotactic body radiotherapy.
Assess the degree of vascular involvement is crucial in the diagnostic and therapeutic work-up of pancreatic cancer. NCCN resectability classification is used to stratify patients (in rese...
The aim of this study is to investigate usefulness of low kVp high mAs computed tomography in evaluation of pancreatic cancer resectability.
The prognosis of pancreatic cancer is extremely poor, even in those patients who had underwent surgery, the 5-year survival is still less than 10%. Current guidelines recommend Gemcitabine...
The prognosis of pancreatic cancer is extremely poor. Current guidelines recommend FOLFIRINOX or modified-FOLFIRINOX as the first-line chemotherapeutic regimen. Studies have shown that imm...

Tests based on the biochemistry and physiology of the exocrine pancreas and involving analysis of blood, duodenal contents, feces, or urine for products of pancreatic secretion.
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.
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...
