Exocrine pancreatic function is affected in patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC), clinically leading to steatorrhea. It is unknown whether maldigestion and malabsorption can also be attributed to impaired intestinal enterocyte function. In this exploratory study enterocyte function was assessed in patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer, treated with Irreversible Electroporation (IRE).
This study aimed to investigate the application of preoperative three-dimensional model design in radioactive particle implantation for advanced pancreatic cancer, and accordingly analyze the effect of particle implantation in the treatment of advanced pancreatic cancer.
Despite the introduction of novel therapeutic regimens for advanced stages of pancreatic cancer, long-term survival and overall outcome for patients are still very poor. Suitable small animal models are a prerequisite for better understanding of underlying pathophysiology and for translational studies designed to uncover novel therapeutic targets and to evaluate therapy regimens on a preclinical level. Areas covered: Genetically engineered mouse models as well as syngenic and xenotransplantation models are ...
Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest malignancies with few early detection tests or effective therapies. PI3K-AKT signaling is recognized to modulate cancer progression. We previously identified that a genetic variant in PKN1 increased pancreatic cancer risk through the PKN1/FAK/PI3K/AKT pathway. In order to investigate the associations between genetic variations in that pathway and pancreatic cancer prognosis, we conducted a two-stage survival analysis in a total of 547 Chinese pancreatic cancer patie...
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most aggressive human malignancies and is associated with a dismal prognosis, which can be contributed to its atypical symptoms, metastatic propensity, and significant chemoresistance. Emerging evidence shows that pancreatic cancer cell-derived exosomes (PEXs) play critical roles in tumorigenesis and tumor development, as they are involved in drug resistance, immune evasion and metabolic reprograming, and distant metastasis of pancreatic cancer. Their numerous differentially ...
The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of FOLFIRINOX (5-FU/leucovorin, irinotecan, and oxaliplatin) and gemcitabine/nab-paclitaxel (GnP) in patients with advanced pancreatic cancer.
Survival of KRAS-mutant pancreatic cancer is critically dependent on reprogrammed metabolism including elevated macropinocytosis, autophagy, and lysosomal degradation of proteins. Lysosomal acidification is indispensable to protein catabolism, which makes it an exploitable metabolic target for KRAS-mutant pancreatic cancer. Herein we investigated ultra-pH sensitive micelles (UPSM) with pH-specific buffering of organelle pH and rapid drug release as a promising therapy against pancreatic cancer. UPSM undergo...
Pancreatic cancer has one of the worst prognoses with 5-year survival below 10%. There is some evidence that alcohol consumption might increase the risk of pancreatic cancer. We examined associations of pre-diagnostic alcohol intake with (i) incidence of pancreatic cancer, and (ii) overall survival following pancreatic cancer.
Despite improvements in cancer management, most pancreatic cancers are still diagnosed at an advanced stage. We have recently identified promoter DNA methylation of the genes ADAMTS1 and BNC1 as potential blood biomarkers of pancreas cancer. In this study, we validate this biomarker panel in peripheral cell-free tumor DNA of patients with pancreatic cancer.
The risk of potential drug-drug interactions (PDI) is poorly studied in oncology. We included 105 patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), 100 patients with advanced breast cancer (BC) and 100 patients of the palliative care unit (PCU) receiving systemic palliative treatment between 2010 and 2015. All patients suffered from advanced incurable cancer and received basic palliative care. PDI were assessed using the hospINDEX of all drugs approved in Switzerland in combination with a specific ...
Overexpression of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is common in pancreatic cancer and associated with the poor prognosis of this malignancy.
In our previous randomised phase 2 study for patients with gemcitabine-refractory advanced pancreatic cancer, S-1 plus leucovorin improved progression-free survival compared with S-1 alone. Here, we evaluated the efficacy of TAS-118 (S-1 plus leucovorin) versus S-1 in overall survival (OS).
Pancreatic cancer is a lethal disease with a very poor prognosis. In contrast to treatments for many other tumor types, cytotoxic agents are still the first-line drugs for pancreatic cancer in both the palliative and adjuvant settings. Some progress has been made in recent years, but most large phase 3 studies have not shown significant improvements in survival. Because the available drugs and regimens are limited in both type and effect, the selection of chemotherapy based on clinicopathologic characterist...
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the most lethal malignancies worldwide. PDAC is resistant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy which leads to the poor prognosis of PDAC patients and a 5-year survival rate of less than 5%. Exploring the mechanism of the pancreatic cancer tumorigenesis is the key to finding a novel therapeutic strategy for cancer treatment. B7-H3 belongs to the B7 family of immunoregulatory proteins, and the overexpression of B7-H3 is found in various types of cancer. The regula...
Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is a promising treatment modality for locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC). We evaluated the clinical outcomes of SBRT in patients with LAPC.
We report the case of a 61-year-old man with pancreatectomy with arterial resection and reconstruction and extended lymph node dissection because of locally advanced pancreatic cancer. Surgery revealed the tumor invading the root part of the superior mesenteric artery, so we cut off and reconstructed the artery root through end-to-end anastomosis of the left gastric artery and superior mesenteric artery. The left gastric artery is a reasonable choice to reconstruct the superior mesenteric artery, and to the...
The antipsychotic drug olanzapine is effective against chemotherapy-induced nausea and targets multiple receptors known to be involved in the emetic reflex arch. The drug has a mean half-life of 30 h, which allows for a single daily administration and is therefore of interest in patients with advanced cancer suffering from nausea.
Despite recent advances in the treatment of cancer, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) still retains the worst survival rate of common malignancies. Late diagnosis and lack of curative therapeutic options are the most pressing clinical problems for this disease. Therefore, there is a need for patient models and biomarkers that can be applied in the clinic to identify the most effective therapy for a patient. Pancreatic ductal organoids are ex-vivo models of PDAC that can be established from very small ...
This study aimed to analyze the clinical safety and effectiveness of endoscopic ultrasound-guided celiac plexus neurolysis (EUS-CPN) in alleviating intractable abdominal pain caused by advanced pancreatic cancer. A total of 58 patients with inoperable pancreatic cancer who underwent EUS-CPN from May 2015 to December 2017 were enrolled. Pain levels before and after EUS-CPN were assessed and compared using the Visual Analogue Scale. The preoperative Visual Analogue Scale score was 8.2±2.3, which decreased si...
Pancreatic cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related death in the United States and survival outcomes remain dismal despite significant advances in molecular diagnostics and therapeutics in clinical practice. The microenvironment of pancreatic cancer carries unique features with increased desmoplastic reaction and is infiltrated by regulatory T cells and myeloid-derived suppressor cells which negatively impact the effector immune cells. Current evidence suggests that stellate cell-induced hypova...
Patients with pancreatic cancer have a poor prognosis and are usually diagnosed at a late stage. Because TM4SF5 is known to be overexpressed in hepatocellular carcinoma, colon cancer, and pancreatic cancer, it is considered as one of the candidate molecular targets for an anticancer strategies.
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths and novel treatment approaches are urgently needed. Here we show that poly(ethylene glycol)-functionalized nanodiamonds loaded with doxorubicin (ND-PEG-DOX) afforded a considerable improvement over free drug in an orthotopic pancreatic xenograft model. ND-PEG-DOX complexes were also superior to free DOX in 3-dimensional (3D) tumor spheroids of PDAC. ND-PEG showed no cytotoxicity towards macrophages, and histopathol...
The COMBO stent (OrbusNeich Medical, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida) is a new-generation bio-engineered drug eluting stent, combining an abluminal coating of a bioabsorbable polymer matrix for sustained release of sirolimus and luminal anti-CD34 coating for endothelial progenitor cell capture and rapid endothelialization.
The role of endoscopy in the care of patients with pancreatic cancer continues to evolve. The early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer has been difficult. Endoscopic ultrasound examination should be used to examine pancreatic lesions because it can characterize lesions and sample tissue. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is essential in managing biliary obstructions. Endoscopic ultrasound can assist in gaining access to difficult biliary trees. Endoscopic placement of luminal stents can be used for...
Locally advanced pancreatic cancer is a life-limiting tumor with a wide range of incapacitating symptoms such as cancer-associated pain. Several local ablative therapies with both thermal and non-thermal sources have recently received significant attention as modern treatment options for local tumor control and symptomatic improvement. The following review article provides an overview of currently available techniques and their outcomes including our own experience with high-intensity focused ultrasound ...
