Benefit of Surveillance for Pancreatic Cancer in High-Risk Individuals: Outcome of Long-Term Prospective Follow-Up Studies From Three European Expert Centers Cancer Prevention and Control

Conclusion Surveillance of CDNK2A mutation carriers is relatively successful, detecting most PDACs at a resectable stage. The benefit of surveillance in families with FPC is less evident.

Hammud, Ulrich Kortz, Saurav Bhattacharya, Sally Demirdjian, Essa Hariri, Samih Isber, Eun Sang Choi, Babak Mirtamizdoust, Mohamad Mroueh, Costantine F. DaherAbstractThe dinuclear complex Bis[(µ2-azido)-chloro-(1,10-phenanthroline)-copper(II)] (1) was synthesized, and characterized by X-ray. Complex (1) crystallizes in the monoclinic system, it consists of centrosymmetric [CuCl(phen)N3]2 dimers bridged by azide groups. The phenanthroline ligand, chloride ion, and ƞ-N of equatorial bridging azide ligand are coplanar...

In this study, two novel benzimidazolium salts consisting propane sulfonate order were integrated in high yields as N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) precursors.The silver-NHC buildings were set up by responding 1-(2,2-dimethoxyethyl)- 3-(propyl-3-sulfonate)benzimidazolium and 1-(2,2-diethoxyethyl)- 3-(propyl-3-sulfonate)benzimidazolium with silver oxide on average state. Gold-NHC edifices were acquired by means of transmetallation of their silver precursors with [AuCl{S(CH3)2}]. The structures of all mixes were completely portrayed by spectroscopic techniques (1H-NMR, 13C{1H} NMR , IR and elemental and further analyzed by DFT/...

Discussion Suppressor of cytokine signaling 1 is an essential molecule for maintaining immune homeostasis and subverting inflammation. Disorders arising from excess inflammation or SOCS1 deficiency can be potentially treated with SOCS1 mimetics (Ahmed et al., 2015). While SOCS1 has promising potential in many disorders, it should be noted that new targets and actions of SOCS1 are still being discovered and not all the effects of this protein are beneficial in autoimmune diseases and cancer. For instance, SOCS1 degrades IRS1 and IRS2, required for insulin signaling, via the SOCS Box domain, thus, limiting its potential in ...

AbstractA promising approach capitalizing on the specific and highly sensitive characteristics of the body ’s own immune system is demonstrated in the context of revealing pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma cancer (PDAC). IgA from a local biofluid called gastrointestinal lavage fluid (GLF) is used to investigate glycan reactivity to show the potential of this approach. IgA antibody responses, just as wit h IgG, result in amplification of a small signal which aids in detecting changes from a healthy state. IgA from GLF was screened against glycan arrays containing 609 glycan structures to investigate differential bindin...

Objectives Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is associated with increased coagulation and venous thrombotic events (VTE). PDAC is often diagnosed late and survival is poor. CA 19-9 is the most used tumor marker for PDAC, but it is more useful in follow-up than diagnosis. Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) is a benign tumor of the pancreas, which can become malignant, however pancreatic tumor surgery is extensive and should not be done needlessly. The aim of this study was to study whether PDAC could be distinguished from IPMN preoperatively using coagulation biomarkers and whether combing them in a panel ...

Authors: Bhutani M, Koduru P, Lanke G, Bruno M, Maitra A, Giovannini M Abstract Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is a lethal cancer with a 5-year survival rate of less than 5%. Surgical resection is the only curative treatment but only 20% are eligible for resection at the time of diagnosis. Early detection of cancer is of paramount importance in the management. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is the preferred modality for obtaining tissue diagnosis of pancreatic masses. However, the diagnostic accuracy of EUS-FNA may be limited by several factors like availability of onsite cytopathol...

Next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies are rapidly being incorporated into the clinic to facilitate decisions on cancer patient care. However, successful translation of NGS data requires knowledge on which DNA aberrations represent actionable events, either for development or re-positioning of approved agents to target their activated pathways. Recognizing this, large-scale tumor profiling efforts by consortia such as The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) are cataloging genomic aberrations across major cancer lineages. These efforts have revealed an extraordinary level of genome complexity made up of not only key “dr...
