Importance of family history and indications for genetic testing.

Family history is an important cancer risk assessment tool, and it is easy to use. The family history is integral in identifying an individual's risk for primary cancer and assists in the assessment of risk for a second primary cancer. For oncology providers, the critical family history is defined as including first- and second-degree family history, maternal and paternal history, type of primary cancer, and age at diagnosis and ethnicity. Family history should be taken at diagnosis and updated periodically...


Meta-analysis of fish consumption and risk of pancreatic cancer in 13 prospective studies with 1.8 million participants.

A previous meta-analysis suggested no association between fish consumption and risk of pancreatic cancer. As several prospective studies with a large number of pancreatic cancer cases have emerged after that meta-analysis, we updated the evidence and examined the relationship in greater depth. We performed a literature search on PubMed and EMBASE databases through March 30, 2019 to identify potentially eligible studies. We used a random-effects model to compute summary relative risk (RR) with corresponding ...

Hereditary Pancreatic Cancer Syndromes: Providing Care to At-Risk Families.

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 pancreatic cancer are often motivated to pursue genetic testing. This article reviews various hereditary pancreatic cancer syndromes, as well as pancreatic cancer screening recommendations, options, and limitations.


A cohort study of personal and family history of skin cancer in relation to future risk of non-cutaneous malignancies.

Family history of cancer and subsequent risk of cancer: a large-scale population-based prospective study in Japan.

Family history (FH) of cancer is an important factor of increased risk of several cancers. Although the association between FH of cancer and concordant cancer risk has been reported in many previous epidemiological studies, no comprehensive prospective study with adjustment for lifestyle habits has evaluated the association of FH of cancer and concordant cancer risk. We investigated the association between FH of cancer and concordant cancer risk in a Japanese population-based prospective study, initiated in...

An examination of the association between lifetime history of prostate and pancreatic cancer diagnosis and occupation in a population sample of Canadians.

Expression and Role of MicroRNAs from the miR-200 Family in the Tumor Formation and Metastatic Propensity of Pancreatic Cancer.

MicroRNAs from the miR-200 family are commonly associated with the inhibition of the metastatic potential of cancer cells, following inhibition of ZEB transcription factors expression and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition. However, previous studies performed in pancreatic adenocarcinoma revealed a more complex picture challenging this canonical model. To gain better insights into the role of miR-200 family members in this disease, we analyzed the expression of miR-200a, miR-200b, miR-200c, miR-141, miR-4...

The intricate relationship between diabetes, obesity and pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic cancer is one of the leading determinants of global cancer mortality, and its incidence is predicted to increase, to become in 2030 the second most common cause of cancer-related death. Obesity and diabetes are recognized risk factors for the development of pancreatic cancer. In the last few decades an epidemic of diabetes and obesity has been spreading worldwide, forewarning an increase in incidence of pancreatic cancer. This review considers the most recent literature, covering the multiple mol...

Mutations and the Importance of Genetic Testing.

There is some controversy over whether every single woman with breast cancer shold have genetic testing, or whether it should only those who have some personal or family history that would suggest their breast cancer may be linked to an inherited mutation. There are also tests of the tumor that look for somatic mutations. Here, we explore the arguments and options.

Use of Family History and Genetic Testing to Determine Risk of Colorectal Cancer.

Approximately 35% of patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) have a family history of the disease, due to genetic factors, common exposures, or both. Some families with a history of CRC carry genetic variants that cause CRC with high or moderate penetrance, but these account for only 5%-10% of CRC cases. Most families with a history of CRC and/or adenomas do not carry genetic variants associated with cancer syndromes-this is called common familial CRC. Our understanding of familial predisposition to CRC and c...

Differential cumulative risk of genetic polymorphisms in familial and non-familial esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

To explore the relationship between family history of esophageal cancer, SNPs, and the risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), we performed a population-based case-control study and developed a Genetic Family-history-related Risk (GFR) and non-Family-history-related Risk (GnFR) score to quantify the cumulative genetic risk.

Resilient and low performer students: Personal and family determinants in European countries.

Students’ academic achievement depends on their personal, family and sociocultural characteristics. This study aims to identify the personal and family factors of European students who do not perform as expected, whether by surpassing expectations (resilient) or by failing to meet them (low performers).

The impact of preoperative biliary stenting in pancreatic cancer: A case-matched study from the German nationwide pancreatic surgery registry (DGAV StuDoQ|Pancreas).

The impact of preoperative biliary stenting (PBS) before pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is controversial.

Prognostic importance of peritoneal washing cytology in patients with otherwise resectable pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma who underwent pancreatectomy: A nationwide, cancer registry-based study from the Japan Pancreas Society.

The importance of peritoneal washing cytology status both as a sign of irresectability and as a prognostic factor for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma remains controversial. The purpose of this nationwide, cancer registry-based study was to clarify the clinical implications of operative resection in patients who had positive cytology status.

Head-to-Head Comparison of Family History of Colorectal Cancer and a Genetic Risk Score for Colorectal Cancer Risk Stratification.

Family history (FH) is associated with increased risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). We aimed to examine the potential for CRC risk stratification by known common genetic variants beyond FH in a large population-based case-control study from Germany.

Cigarette Smoking and Mortality in Patients With Pancreatic Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Current evidence on cigarette smoking associated with pancreatic cancer mortality is limited. We searched MEDLINE, Web of Science, and Embase databases to identify relevant studies published through January 31, 2018. A random-effects model was used to estimate summary hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). A total of 20 studies were retrieved, involving 2,517,623 participants. Of these, more than 15,341 patients with pancreatic cancer died. Compared with never smokers, current (summary HR, ...

The principal target age for Australian BreastScreen services was 50-69 years in 1991-2013 and 50-74 years from 2014. History of BreastScreen NSW screening participation of NSW women diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005-2014 was examined using linked BreastScreen and Cancer Registry data.

Attenuation of hedgehog/GLI signaling by NT1721 extends survival in pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal malignancies due to frequent late diagnosis, aggressive tumor growth and metastasis formation. Continuously raising incidence rates of pancreatic cancer and a lack of significant improvement in survival rates over the past 30 years highlight the need for new therapeutic agents. Thus, new therapeutic agents and strategies are urgently needed to improve the outcome for patients with pancreatic cancer. Here, we evaluated the anti-tumor activity of a new natural pro...

HEATR1 deficiency promotes pancreatic cancer proliferation and gemcitabine resistance by up-regulating Nrf2 signaling.

The human HEAT repeat-containing protein 1 (HEATR1), consisting of 2144 amino acids, is a member of the UTP10 family and contains one HEAT repeat at its C-terminal. HEATR1 has been reported to regulate cytotoxic T lymphocytes and rRNA synthesis, while its functions in tumors are poorly understood. Here, we found that HEATR1 competed with Keap1 for binding to p62/sequestosome 1 (SQSTM1), resulted in up-regulation of Keap1, which then inhibited Nrf2 signaling in pancreatic cancer cells. HEATR1 knockdown enhan...

Effects of Family History on Relative and Absolute Risks for Colorectal Cancer: a Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Guidelines recommend individuals with familial colorectal cancer (FCC) to undergo colonoscopy surveillance instead of average-risk screening. However, these recommendations vary widely. To substantiate appropriate surveillance strategies, precise and valid evidence-based risk estimates are needed for individuals with a family history of colorectal cancer (CRC).

Use of detailed family history data to improve risk prediction,with application to breast cancer screening.

As breast cancer represents a major morbidity and mortality burden in the U.S., with about one in eight women developing invasive breast cancer over her lifetime, accurate low-cost screening is an important public health issue. First-degree family history, often simplified as a dichotomous or three-level categorical variable (0/1/>1) based on number of affected relatives, is an important risk factor for many conditions. However, detailed family structure information such as the total number of first-degree ...
