BACKGROUND: Neural invasion (N-inv) induces the neural damage and pain in pancreatic cancer (PCa). Benign nerve injury evokes allodynia through neuroinflammation in the neural root, which might be seen in PCa. Macrophages have the potential to release excitatory cytokines after nerve injury and so may play a role in the generation of chronic neuropathic pain. The aim of this study is to represent N-inv-induced allodynia in patients with PCa and to characterize allodynia-related neuroinflammation as macrophage accumulation on dorsal root ganglion (DRG) in the N-inv animal model (N-inv model)...

In pancreatic cancer, neural invasion is one of the most common paths of cancer dissemination. Classically, cancer cells actively invade nerves and cause local recurrence and pain. Three-dimensional (3D) neural migration assay has become a standard tool for scientists to study neural invasion by confronting the involved cell types. This protocol introduces Schwann cells, i.e., the most prevalent cell type in peripheral nerves, in a novel heterotypic, glia-cancer-neuron, 3D migration assay for assessing their relevance in the early pathogenesis of neural invasion...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Time-intensity curve (TIC) under contrast-enhanced EUS (CE-EUS) allows continuous and quantitative evaluation of targeted area in the pancreas. However, TIC is not always available and the procedure is complicated. We aimed to propose a simplified method by evaluating multiple phases of CE-EUS in the diagnosis of pancreatic solid lesions. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 210 patients with pancreatic solid lesions including 142 with pancreatic ductal cancer (PDAC), 31 with pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasm, 13 with solid pseudopapillary neoplasm and 24 with mass-forming pancreatitis who underwent CE-EUS and achieved final diagnoses...

Pancreatic cancer exhibits a high mortality rate resulting from metastasis and there is currently no effective treatment strategy. Hypoxia serves an important role in cancer cells, where cellular metabolic rate is high. The underlying mechanisms that trigger hypoxia and the invasion of pancreatic cancer cells remain unknown. Investigation of the importance of hypoxia in the invasion of pancreatic cancer cells for potential, novel treatment strategies is of primary concern. Cell Counting Kit‑8 assay, invasion assay, western blotting and reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction were used to investigate invasion and epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT) and the expression of Notch1 in MiaPaCa2 cells treated with cobalt II chloride (CoCl2)...

Neuropsychiatric disorder-associated disrupted-in-schizophrenia-1 (DISC1) activates Wnt/β-catenin signaling by inhibiting glycogen synthase kinase 3 beta (GSK3β) phosphorylation, and may promote neural progenitor cell and pancreatic β-cell proliferation. The present study found that DISC1 promotes non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell growth. Western blotting and immunohistochemistry analyses showed that DISC1 was highly expressed in NSCLC cell lines and patient tissues. DISC1 expression was negatively associated with phosphorylated (p-) GSK3β, but positively correlated with a more invasive tumor phenotype and predicted poor NSCLC patient prognosis...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA) is a fatal and insidious malignant disease for which clinicians' tools are restricted by the current limits in knowledge of how tumor and stromal cells act during the disease. Among PDA hallmarks, neural remodeling (NR) and perineural invasion (PNI) drastically influence quality of life and patient survival. Indeed, NR and PNI are associated with neuropathic pain and metastasis, respectively, both of which impact clinicians' decisions and therapeutic options. The aim of this study was to determine the impact and clinical relevance of the peritumoral microenvironment, through pancreatitis-associated protein (PAP/REG3A) expression, on PNI in pancreatic cancer...

MYBL2 (B-MYB), a member of the MYB family of transcription factor genes, regulates the expression of genes in the process of tumorigenesis. Many studies have shown that MYBL2 is high expresssion in several human malignancies including pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). However, its role in PDAC is still unclear. The present study is designed to investigate MYBL2 expression levels and prognostic significance in PDAC patients. We assessed MYBL2 expression level by immunohistochemistry in tumor tissues from 93 PDAC patients undergoing curative resection...

Pancreatic cancer (PC) is one of the most fatal cancers worldwide. The incidence and death rates are still increasing for PC. Curcumin is the biologically active diarylheptanoid constituent of the spice turmeric, which exerts its anticancer properties in various human cancers including PC. In particular, accumulating evidence has proved that curcumin targets numerous therapeutically important proteins in cell signaling pathways. The neural precursor cell expressed developmentally down-regulated protein 4 (NEDD4) is an E3 HECT ubiquitin ligase and is frequently over-expressed in various cancers...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the impact of neural invasion/NI on overall survival/OS and tumor recurrence in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma/PDAC. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: NI is a histopathological hallmark of PDAC. Although some studies suggested an important role for NI on OS, disease-free/DFS and progression-free survival/PFS in PDAC, there is still no consensus on the actual role of NI on survival and local recurrence in PDAC. METHODS: Pubmed, Cochrane library, Ovid and Google Scholar were screened for the terms "pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma", "pancreatic cancer", "survival", "tumor recurrence" and "perineural invasion"...

Pancreatic cancer is characterized by neural alterations and aberrant expression of neural-specific factors. Semaphorins have been recognized as key contributors in axon guidance, the immune response and tumor progression. Recent studies have suggested the involvement of Semaphorin 3c (sema3c) in tumorigenesis and metastasis in numerous types of cancer, however, the clinical significance of sema3c and its role in the growth and metastasis of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) remain unclear. In this study, we found that aberrant sema3c expression was positively associated with a particular tumor stage and correlated with poor survival of PDAC patients...

Tumor spread along nerves, a phenomenon known as perineurial invasion, is common in various cancers including pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). Neural invasion is associated with poor outcome, yet its mechanism remains unclear. Using the transgenic Pdx-1-Cre/KrasG12D /p53R172H (KPC) mouse model, we investigated the mechanism of neural invasion in PDAC. To detect tissue-specific factors that influence neural invasion by cancer cells, we characterized the perineurial microenvironment using a series of bone marrow transplantation (BMT) experiments in transgenic mice expressing single mutations in the Cx3cr1, GDNF and CCR2 genes...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) cells (PCC) have an exceptional propensity to metastasize early into intratumoral, chemokine-secreting nerves. However, we hypothesized the opposite process, that precancerous pancreatic cells secrete chemokines that chemoattract Schwann cells (SC) of nerves and thus induce ready-to-use routes of dissemination in early carcinogenesis. Here we show a peculiar role for the chemokine CXCL12 secreted in early PDAC and for its receptors CXCR4/CXCR7 on SC in the initiation of neural invasion in the cancer precursor stage and the resulting delay in the onset of PDAC-associated pain...

Perineural invasion (PNI) is thought to be one of the factors responsible for the high rate of tumor recurrence after surgery and the pain generation associated with pancreatic cancer. Signaling via the nerve growth factor (NGF) pathway between pancreatic cancer cells and the surrounding nerves has been implicated in PNI, and increased levels of these proteins have been correlated to poor prognosis. In this study, we examine the molecular mechanism of the NGF signaling pathway in PNI in pancreatic cancer. We show that knocking down NGF or its receptors, TRKA and p75NTR, or treatment with GW441756, a TRKA kinase inhibitor, reduces the proliferation and migration of pancreatic cancer cells in vitro...
