Association between the Risk Factors for Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma and Those for Malignant Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasm

Conclusions: The presence of both a smoking history and MNs was a valuable predictive factor for malignant IPMN with high specificity. A smoking history should be considered before surgical resection in addition to the presence of MNs.Oncology 2017;93(suppl 1):102-106

You can say one thing for Professor Mark Haub: He knows how to make a lesson stick. Haub, who teaches nutrition at Kansas State University, wanted to prove to his students that weight loss is simply about calories. So, for 10 weeks, the professor proceeded to eat an 1,800-calorie diet consisting of a Twinkie every three hours. He also dined on Doritos, Little Debbies, sugary cereal and other junk food. When he started, Haub tipped the scales at 201 pounds, which for his height was considered overweight. By the end of his snack-food spree, he had lost 27 pounds, putting him at a svelte 174. The story went viral, with the me...

We describe a successfully diagnosed and treated CHL-PTLD stage IV pediatric patient, 8 years after liver transplantation. The patient was treated with standard CHL (Children’s Cancer Group 5942 group 3) chemotherapy, rituximab and reduction of immunosuppressant. The patient remains in complete remission after 3 years with stable graft function. To our best knowledge, this is the first pediatric case report of a successfully treated stage IV CHL-PTLD after a liver transplant.

rio F Abstract The most frequent pancreatic cancer is pancreatic adenocarcinoma. It has high and early locally and distant invasiveness; this is the reason why it often shows little sign or symptoms in early stage and poor prognosis after the diagnosis, frequently in advanced stage. Although it is possible to detect this tumor in early stage because of its neoplastic precursor (PanINs). Epidemiological data shows that pancreatic cancer is not very common but obvious it is one of the most neoplastic death-cause in the world. The trend of incidence is quite increasing through years, proportionally to the increase of...

Obesity is usually associated with morbidity related to diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular diseases. However, there are many gastrointestinal and hepatic diseases for which obesity is the direct cause [e.g. non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases (NAFLD)] or is a significant risk factor, such as reflux esophagitis and gallstones. When obesity is a risk factor, it may interact with other mechanisms and result in earlier presentation or complicated diseases. There are increased odds ratios or relative risks of several gastrointestinal complications of obesity: gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), erosive esophagitis, Barrett...
