The use of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors may be associated with pancreatic cancer and acute pancreatitis. Recent meta-analyses have reported conflicting findings. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis to assess the risk of both pancreatic cancer and acute pancreatitis associated with the use of DPP-4 inhibitors. We also used trial sequential analysis to evaluate whether the number of patients included was enough to reach conclusions. We included randomised controlled trials lasting 24 weeks or more that compared DPP-4 inhibitors with placebo or other antihyperglycaemic agents...

INTRODUCTION: Despite advances in treatment, notably in systemic therapy, the prognosis of pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PADC) remains dismal. Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is an emerging tool in the complex management of PADC. We review outcomes of SBRT for PADC at our institution. METHODS: We reviewed patients treated with SBRT for either unresectable PADC or locally recurrent PADC after surgery. Treatment was delivered using a robotic radiosurgery system with respiratory tracking...

Imaging of the gallbladder has a key role in the examination of patients with abdominal pain-especially pain localized to the right upper quadrant. Pathologic conditions that affect the gallbladder include cholelithiasis and associated complications such as acute and chronic cholecystitis, choledocholithiasis, gallstone pancreatitis, and cancer. Modalities used to image the gallbladder include ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and nuclear scintigraphy. US is the primary imaging modality used to evaluate entities suspected of being gallbladder disease, as it is both sensitive and specific for demonstrating gallstones, biliary duct dilatation, and inflammatory features...

Autophagy has been shown to be elevated in pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC) and its role in promoting established tumor growth has made it a promising therapeutic target. However, due to limitations of prior mouse models as well as the lack of potent and selective autophagy inhibitors, the ability to fully assess the mechanistic basis of how autophagy supports pancreatic cancer has been limited. To test the feasibility of treating PDAC using autophagy inhibition and further our understanding of the mechanisms of pro-tumor effects of autophagy, we developed a novel mouse model that allowed the acute and reversible inhibition of autophagy...

Luteolin, a flavone, has been demonstrated to have anti‑cancer properties. In the current study, the effects of luteolin on certain carcinogenesis‑associated changes induced by pancreatitis, which are significant risk factors for pancreatic cancer, were investigated. Male six‑week‑old C57BL6 mice used in the current study were divided into three groups; the control group, acute pancreatitis group and luteolin group. Intra‑peritoneal injection of cearulein was performed in the acute pancreatitis group and luteolin group to induce acute pancreatitis whereas the luteolin group received intra‑peritoneal injection of luteolin...

Activating mutations in KRAS are the hallmark genetic alterations in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) and the key drivers of its initiation and progression. Longstanding efforts to develop novel KRAS inhibitors have been based on the assumption that PDAC cells are addicted to activated KRAS, but this assumption remains controversial. In this study, we analyzed the requirement of endogenous Kras to maintain survival of murine PDAC cells, using an inducible shRNA-based system that enables temporal control of Kras expression...

INTRODUCTION: Pancreatic cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related death. Its diagnosis is often delayed and patients are frequently found to have unresectable disease. Patients diagnosed with new-onset diabetes have an 8-fold risk of harboring pancreatic cancer. Adrenomedullin has been claimed to mediate diabetes in pancreatic cancer. New screening tools are needed to develop an early diagnosis protocol. METHODS: Patients aged 45-75 years within 2 years of first fulfilling the ADA criteria for diabetes will be prospectively enrolled in this study...

BACKGROUND Aberrant regulation of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) and the signaling pathways that regulate its activity have been found to be involved in various pathologies, particularly cancers, as well as inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a complex pathological process, depending on autodigestion caused by premature activation of zymogens. This study aimed to investigate the effect of high expression of TNIP2 gene on AP and AP-induced myocardial injury. MATERIAL AND METHODS To investigate the effect of TNIP2 on AP and AP-induced myocardial injury, we established an AP cell model and rat model...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE)2-angiotensin‑(Ang)-(1-7)-Mas axis in the pathogenesis of pancreatitis and the association between this axis and the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (p38 MAPK)/nuclear factor (NF-κB) signaling pathway in pancreatic acinar cells. Mouse pancreatic acinar cancer (MPC-83) cells were stimulated with 10 nM caerulein (CAE) to create an in vitro model of acute pancreatitis, and collected for analysis at 2, 6, 12, 24 and 48 h post stimulation...

Most cases of acute pancreatitis are related to gallstones. More than 80% resolve within a few days. The diagnosis is based on upper abdominal pain, elevated lipase and/or amylase, and transabdominal ultrasound findings. Management requires early aggressive hydration, pain control, nutritional support, and monitoring for progression. Patients who develop hypovolemia, systemic inflammatory response, pancreatic necrosis, and organ failure have high mortality, risk of recurrence, and progression to chronic pancreatitis (CP)...

Background: Increasing evidence has demonstrated that Notch signaling is deregulated in human hematological malignancies and solid tumors. This signaling has a protumorigenic effect but may also act as a tumor suppressor. How induction of a single pathway gives rise to the opposite effects in different cell types is still unknown. Methods: This review article includes available data from peer-reviewed publications associated with the role of Notch signaling during cancer pathogenesis...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths. With surgical resection being the only definitive treatment, improvements in technique has led to an increase in number of candidates undergoing resection by inclusion of borderline resectable disease patients to the clearly resectable group. Post-operative complications associated with pancreaticoduodenectomy and distal pancreatectomy include delayed gastric emptying, anastomotic failures, fistula formation, strictures, abscess, infarction, etc...

INTRODUCTION: Borderline resectable pancreatic cancer (BRPC) can involve the portal vein, superior mesenteric vein, superior mesenteric artery, coeliac axis or hepatic artery, and has a high probability of positive surgical margins and poor prognosis after resection. Neoadjuvant chemoradiation is expected to provide substantial local control and prolong survival in patients with BRPC. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: This open-label, multicentre, prospective phase II trial will assess S-1 with concurrent radiotherapy as preoperative treatment for BRPC...

Cancer is associated with an increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE); the exact mechanisms for the induction of VTE remain to be fully elucidated, yet it is widely acknowledged that tissue factor-positive microparticles (TF-MPs) may play a significant role. However, TF-MPs have yet to be accepted as a bona fide biomarker for cancer-associated VTE, as the presence of elevated TF-MPs levels is not always accompanied by thrombosis; interestingly in certain cases, particularly in pancreatic cancer, VTE seems to be more likely in the context of acute inflammation...

Cancer-associated fibroblasts are abundant in the desmoplastic stroma of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas and are considered to play important roles in tumor progression. In this study, we investigated the expression status of secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine, periostin, fibroblast-activated protein, and the newly developed proCOL11A1 antibody in the stroma of surgically resected pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas and their prognostic implications. Tissue microarrays were constructed from 155 surgically resected pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas and paired non-neoplastic pancreata and from another independent set of 48 normal/benign pancreata, and immunohistochemical stains were performed for proCOL11A1, fibroblast-activated protein, secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine, and periostin...

As a sudden inflammation of the pancreas, acute pancreatitis presents severe complications and a high mortality rate, despite treatment. Lipase in serum serves as an essential biomarker of acute pancreatitis and even pancreatic cancer. Therefore, developing robust, convenient and sensitive probing of lipase levels is greatly needed. In this work, we present glutamate functionalized tetraphenylethylene (TPE) as a "turn-on" fluorescent probe (S1) based on the aggregation-induced emission (AIE) mechanism for lipase levels with new recognition units...
