Epidemiology and risk factors of pancreatic cancer.

Epidemiology and risk factors of pancreatic cancer. Acta Biomed. 2018 Dec 17;89(9-S):141-146 Authors: Capasso M, Franceschi M, Rodriguez-Castro KI, Crafa P, Cambiè G, Miraglia C, Barchi A, Nouvenne A, Leandro G, Meschi T, De' Angelis GL, Di Mario 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 risk factors. About risk factors, it is not easy to detect in all the cases but it is known the role of some of that: there are hereditary risk factors, such as genetic pattern like HBOC, HNPCC, FAP, PJS, FAMMM, HP and CF and environmental ones (modifiable) such as smoke, alcohol consumption, chronic pancreatitis, obesity and diabetes mellitus. This narrative review aims to analyze the epidemiological data of pancreatic cancer and associated risk factors. PMID: 30561407 [PubMed - in process]

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.
