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.
To investigate the incidence and clinical characteristics of acute pancreatitis following percutaneous insertion of metallic biliary stents in patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer. The clinical efficacy of metallic stent insertion was also evaluated.
The resection of liver tumors that involve the hepatic veins adjacent to the vena cava or hepatic hilum is technically challenging. We present our surgical techniques and the long-term outcome of 5 patients with conventionally unresectable tumors.
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 our knowledge, no reports of FCMS placement for malignant pancreatic strictures have been published. Here, we placed an FCMS in a patient with unresectable recurrent pancreatic cancer, with concurrent malignant pancreatic stricture and refractory intraperitoneal abscess caused by a pancreatic fistula.
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...
Pancreatic cancer (PDAC) with localized stage includes resectable (RPC), borderline resectable (BRPC), or locally advanced unresectable (LAPC). Standard of care for RPC is adjuvant chemotherapy. There are no prospective randomized trials for best treatment of BRPC and LAPC. We evaluate the impact of induction chemotherapy on localized PDAC.
: Epidemiological studies indicate an association between type 2 diabetes and pancreatic cancer but the complex and multidirectional relationship between them remains unclear. : We summarized epidemiological evidence on diabetes and pancreatic cancer exploring the time-risk relationship. We described mechanisms linking long-standing diabetes to pancreatic cancer. We discussed pancreatic cancer-associated diabetes and its implication in the early detection of pancreatic cancer. : The markedly increased risk ...
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...
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most aggressive and lethal malignancies and it is the eighth most common cause of death from cancer worldwide. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of GSG2 (HASPIN) in the development and progression of pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is an aggressive cancer with limited treatment options. Pyruvate kinase, especially the M2 isoform (PKM2), is highly expressed in PDAC cells, but its role in pancreatic cancer remains controversial. To investigate the role of pyruvate kinase in pancreatic cancer, we knocked down PKM2 individually as well as both PKM1 and PKM2 concurrently (PKM1/2) in cell lines derived from a pancreatic mouse model.
Pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate among all main cancer types and is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in Australia.
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is characterized by aggressive invasion, early metastasis, and resistance to chemotherapy, leading to a poor prognosis. To clarify the molecular mechanism of these malignant characteristics, we performed a genome-wide microRNA (miRNA) array analysis utilizing micro-cancer tissues from patients with unresectable PDAC (stage IV), obtained by endoscopic ultrasound-fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA).
Pancreatic cancer has a very poor prognosis, and early diagnosis is a way to increase the survival rate of patients. The purpose of this study was to develop pancreatic cancer-specific peptides for imaging studies.
Rapid access to pancreatic imaging and regular pancreatic surveillance may help identify Stage I pancreatic cancer. We investigated recent trends in the stage of newly-diagnosed PDACs, age at diagnosis, and survival.
To determine equivalence of modified gemcitabine and oxaliplatin compared with gemcitabine and cisplatin in unresectable gallbladder cancer (GBC). Primary end-point was overall survival (OS).
Immunotherapy has been recommended as a second-line treatment only for high microsatellite instability or DNA mismatch repair deficiency advanced pancreatic cancer in National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines. Here, we report a case with a good response to immunotherapy in pancreatic cancer with mismatch repair proficiency. A 55-year-old woman diagnosed with pancreatic cancer cT4N1M1 (liver, lung) who harbored ERBB2 mutations with high tumor mutation burden (TMB) underwent multiple therapies and surv...
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the most lethal forms of cancer with poor prognosis. Pancreatic stellate cells (PSCs) play a vital role in PDAC development. The aim of this study was to explore tumor microenvironment response to PSCs in an orthotopic pancreatic cancer mouse model and to assess if PSCs secreted factors that can facilitate an immunosuppressive microenvironment.
The survival of pancreatic cancer patients with lesions in different locations is unclear. In addition, the different surgery types for nonmetastatic pancreatic head cancer (PHC) or body/tail cancer (PBTC) have different prognostic influences. We analyzed the association by stage between tumor location (head vs. body/tail) and survival of nonmetastatic pancreatic cancer patients who underwent surgery.
Precursors of pancreatic cancer arise in the ductal epithelium; markers exfoliated into pancreatic juice might be used to detect high-grade dysplasia (HGD) and cancer. Specific methylated DNA sequences in pancreatic tissue have been associated with adenocarcinoma. We analyzed these methylated DNA markers (MDMs) in pancreatic juice samples from patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas (PDACs) or intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) with HGD (cases), and assessed their ability to discrimina...
Pancreatic cancer has the highest fatality rate of all cancers. Adulthood obesity is an established risk factor for pancreatic cancer; however, life-course obesity is not well understood. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between body mass index (BMI) trajectories throughout the life-course and pancreatic cancer risk.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal malignant tumors due to a late diagnosis and highly invasion and metastasis. Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) signaling plays a vital role in the progression of pancreatic cancer. The delicate activity of TGF-β signaling is particular important for the development of aggression and metastasis which must be fine-tuned. Here, we investigated the role of super-enhancers in regulating the expression of TGF-β signaling pathway in pancreatic cancer. TGFBR2 owes ...
Pancreatic cancer induces parenchymal atrophy and duct dilation. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether these radiologic modifications are associated with outcomes.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most severe types of tumors, with a 5-year survival rate of less than 7%. The prognosis and treatment of pancreatic cancer are largely limited by the extent of tumor invasion and the presence of lymph node and distant metastases. Therefore, exploring the biological behavior of pancreatic cancer cells (PCCs) is extremely important for the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of pancreatic cancer. Current studies have shown that pancreatic stellate cells (PSCs) regulate the ...
