A diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in a first-degree relative increases an individuals' risk of this cancer. However, it is not clear whether this cancer risk increases in individuals with pancreatic cystic lesions who have a first-degree relative with pancreatic cancer. The Fukuoka criteria are used to estimate risk of pancreatic cancer for patients with pancreatic cystic lesions: individuals with cysts with high risk or worrisome features (Fukuoka positive) have a higher risk of pancreatic cancer than indiv...
Pancreatic cancer is the fifth most common cause of cancer death in the UK. This disease often remains undiagnosed until it is at a late stage, resulting in the majority of tumours being unsuitable for surgical resection. When a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is confirmed, early input from the multi-disciplinary team (MDT) is vital. Due to the poor prognosis, the screening and treatment of pancreatic cancer remains a considerable challenge for medicine in the 21st century.
Pancreatic cancer is considered as one of the most lethal types of cancer due to its poor prognosis and lack of effective therapeutic approaches. Although many studies have been done on pancreatic cancer, the current treatment methods did not exhibit successful results. Hence, novel strategies are needed for treatment of pancreatic cancer. The microenvironment of pancreatic cancer contains many factors such as inflammatory cytokines and tumor associated macrophages (TAMs), which influence the tumor's status...
Currently, there are no effective preventive strategies for pancreatic cancer. Obesity has been increasingly recognized as a strong but modifiable risk factor of pancreatic cancer. In this article, we aim to review the literature regarding weight loss on prevention of pancreatic cancer. Epidemiological and laboratory studies have shown that obesity is associated with increased incidence of pancreatic cancer and potentially worse cancer outcome. Whereas the underlying pathomechanisms remain unclear, chronic ...
To analyze the expression of micro-RNA 143 (miRNA-143) in the patients with pancreatic cancer and to explore the influence of overexpression of miRNA-143 on pancreatic cancer cells.
The aim of this study was to assess the role of hepatitis B (HepB) infection in the causation of pancreatic cancer and the predictors of pancreatic cancer and related mortality.
CDK8 is associated with the transcriptional Mediator complex and has been shown to regulate several transcription factors implicated in cancer. As a pancreatic cancer oncogene, the role of CDK8 in cancer angiogenesis remains unclear. Here, we investigated the contribution of CDK8 in pancreatic cancer angiogenesis and examined the underlying molecular mechanisms.
Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in the United States, and the 5-year relative survival for patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer is less than 10%. Early intervention is the key to a better survival outcome. Currently, there are no biomarkers that can reliably detect pancreatic cancer at an early stage or identify precursors that are destined to progress to malignancy. The National Cancer Institute in partnership with the Kenner Family Research Fund and the Pancreatic Cancer ...
Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer related deaths in the United States. Several dietary factors have been identified that modify pancreatic cancer risk, including low folate levels. In addition to nutrition and lifestyle determinants, folate status may be influenced by genetic factors such as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). In the present study, we investigated the association between folate levels, genetic polymorphisms in genes of the folate pathway, and pancreatic cancer.
Describe relationships between self-reported personal demographics or familial characteristics and psychosocial outcomes (PROMIS® Global Health, Impact of Event Scale-R (pancreatic cancer risk related distress), cancer risk perception, and cancer worry) in participants with inherited or familial pancreatic cancer risk.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the common cancers in US and is associated with high mortality and morbidity. The objectives of our study were to look at the recent trends in the number of hospitalizations with pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic cancer has an extremely highly case fatality. Diabetes is a well-established strong risk factor for pancreatic cancer. Compared to a non-diabetic population, we previously reported a 15- and 14-fold greater risk for detecting pancreatic cancer during the first year after diagnosing diabetes in adult women and men, respectively, which dropped during the second year to 5.4-fold and 3.5-fold, respectively, and stabilized around 3-fold for the rest of the 11-year follow up in our historical cohort. T...
Precision medicine guided by comprehensive genome sequencing represents a potential treatment strategy for pancreatic cancer. However, clinical sequencing for pancreatic cancer entails several practical difficulties. We have launched an in-house clinical sequencing system and started genomic testing for patients with cancer in clinical practice. We have analyzed the clinical utility of this system in pancreatic cancer.
Recently, lncRNA ZEB2-AS1 was identified as a lncRNA that promoted cancer progression. However, the biological function and the underlying mechanism of ZEB2-AS1 in pancreatic cancer had not been reported. In the current study, we revealed that the expression level of ZEB2-AS1 was elevated in pancreatic cancer cell lines and tissues. ZEB2-AS1 inhibition decreased cell growth and invasion in pancreatic cancer. Mechanismly, ZEB2-AS1 exerted as a ceRNA and negatively regulated miR-204 expression. In addition, H...
Multiple therapeutic strategies have been developed to treat pancreatic cancer. However, the outcomes of these approaches are disappointing. Due to deeper understandings of the pivotal roles of the immune system in pancreatic cancer tumorigenesis and progression, novel therapeutic strategies based on immune cells and the tumor microenvironment are being investigated. Some of these approaches, such as checkpoint inhibitors, chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy, and BiTE antibodies, have achieved exciting...
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal cancers with limited treatment options. Gemcitabine has been the standard drug for patients with advanced pancreatic cancer. Dasatinib is a competitive inhibitor of Src kinase, which has shown promise in treatment of pancreatic cancer. Several studies have revealed the drug resistant mechanism of gemcitabine or dasatinib in human cancers; however, few reports focused on the different mechanisms of gemcitabine and dasatinib resistance in pancreatic cancer. Here, we...
There is currently limited knowledge regarding the involvement of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in cancer development. We aimed to identify lncRNAs with important roles in pancreatic cancer progression. We screened for lncRNAs that were differentially expressed in pancreatic cancer tissues. Among 349 differentially expressed lncRNAs, Linc01060 showed the lowest expression in pancreatic cancer tissues compared with normal pancreatic tissues. Lower Linc01060 expression in pancreatic cancer tissues was signif...
For those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, ill-addressed pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (PEI) following surgery can result in malnutrition related complications that may impact on predict mortality and morbidity. The use of pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) is recommended and often demands a degree of patient self-management. Understanding more about how this treatment is managed is fundamental to optimising care.
Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death in Europe and the United States. Studies have demonstrated that patients with pancreatic cancer have a high prevalence of pain, with rates varying from 47% to 82%. Analgesia using intrathecal drug delivery systems (IDDS) has been poorly studied specifically in this population.
Pancreatic cancer is a dismal disease with an increasing incidence. Despite the majority of patients are not candidates for curative surgery, a subgroup of patients classified as borderline resectable pancreatic cancer can be selected in whom a sequential strategy of neoadjuvant therapy followed by surgery can provide better outcomes. Multidisciplinary approach and surgical pancreatic expertise are essential for successfully treating these patients. However, the lack of consensual definitions and therapies ...
The purpose of this study was to find the factors that may be helpful for differentiating pancreatic cancer-associated diabetes mellitus (PC + DM) from common type 2 diabetes for the early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
Patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer have historically been considered inoperable. The purpose of this report was to determine resectability rates for patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer based on our recently described definitions of type A and type B locally advanced pancreatic cancer.
There are both limited and conflicting data on the role of dietary fat and specific fatty acids in the development of pancreatic cancer. In this study, we investigated the association between plasma phospholipid fatty acids and pancreatic cancer risk in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) cohort. The fatty acid composition was measured by gas chromatography in plasma samples collected at recruitment from 375 incident pancreatic cancer cases and 375 matched controls. Assoc...
Pancreatic cancer is one of deadly cancers and is responsible for significant mortality and morbidity across the globe. The unavailability of the efficient chemotheruptic drugs and the potent thereuprtic targets forms a bottleneck in the treatment of pancreatic cancer. In this study we explored the potential of MicroRNA-1179 as the therapeutic target for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. The results of this study indicated that the expression of miR-1179 was significantly downregulated in the pancreatic c...
Immunotherapies are ineffective against pancreatic cancer. We investigated whether the activity of nuclear factor (NF)κB in pancreatic stromal cells contributes to an environment that suppresses anti-tumor immune response.
