The purpose of this study is to confirm the safety and efficacy of sunitinib in subjects with unresectable pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors.
The therapeutic goals in the management of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNET) are the control of symptoms and tumor growth control in order to improve patient survival. In recent yea...
Observational Study In Real Life Settings Of The Systemic Treatment Of Well Differentiated, Unresectable Or Metastatic, Progressive Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (pNET): A Study Of Morbidity And Mortality At 2 Years
A descriptive, prospective (partly retrospective), multisite, observational study conducted in France in adult patients treated for a well differentiated, unresectable or metastatic, pancr...
Prospective study to obtain fresh tumor biopsies and three blood samples from patients with a confirmed histological or cytological diagnosis of well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (...
This study is to evaluate the combination of an investigational drug X-82 with everolimus in the treatment of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors.
Sunitinib is approved for the treatment of progressive, well-differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) in patients with unresectable, locally advanced or metastatic disease. Safety and e...
Synchronous tumors represent a very small portion of pancreatic tumors. Although there is a higher incidence of secondary malignant neoplasms (SMN) in patients with history of Wilms tumor (WT), pancre...
Duodenal gastrointestinal tumors (GISTs) are rare. Duodenal GISTs and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) may appear similar on imaging studies. GISTs arising from the second or third portions of ...
To determine useful contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CE-CT) features in differentiating duodenal gastrointestinal stromal tumors (duodenal GISTs) from hypervascular pancreatic neuroendocrine tum...
Nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NF-PNETs) are a rare disease but have been diagnosed more frequently than before. The aim of this study was to evaluate the natural course of small NF-...
Tumors whose cells possess secretory granules and originate from the neuroectoderm, i.e., the cells of the ectoblast or epiblast that program the neuroendocrine system. Common properties across most neuroendocrine tumors include ectopic hormone production (often via APUD CELLS), the presence of tumor-associated antigens, and isozyme composition.
A group of carcinomas which share a characteristic morphology, often being composed of clusters and trabecular sheets of round "blue cells", granular chromatin, and an attenuated rim of poorly demarcated cytoplasm. Neuroendocrine tumors include carcinoids, small ("oat") cell carcinomas, medullary carcinoma of the thyroid, Merkel cell tumor, cutaneous neuroendocrine carcinoma, pancreatic islet cell tumors, and pheochromocytoma. Neurosecretory granules are found within the tumor cells. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
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).
A 38-kDa integral membrane glycoprotein of the presynaptic vesicles in neuron and neuroendocrine cells. It is expressed by a variety of normal and neoplastic neuroendocrine cells and is therefore used as an immunocytochemical marker for neuroendocrine differentiation in various tumors. In ALZHEIMER DISEASE and other dementing disorders, there is an important synapse loss due in part to a decrease of synaptophysin in the presynaptic vesicles.
A 36-amino acid pancreatic hormone that is secreted mainly by endocrine cells found at the periphery of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS and adjacent to cells containing SOMATOSTATIN and GLUCAGON. Pancreatic polypeptide (PP), when administered peripherally, can suppress gastric secretion, gastric emptying, pancreatic enzyme secretion, and appetite. A lack of pancreatic polypeptide (PP) has been associated with OBESITY in rats and mice.
Pancreatitis Acute pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas caused by the release of activated pancreatic enzymes. Common triggers are biliary tract disease and chronic heavy alcohol intake. Diagnosis is based on clinical presentation...
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
