B and NK Cells Closely Correlate with the Condition of Patients with Acute Pancreatitis.

Conclusions: B cells and NK cells closely correlate with patients' condition and may help to diagnose AP more accurately and reflect treatment effect of AP in time, affecting the recovery speed of patients with M-AP, which may help physicians to better understand the pathophysiology of pancreatitis.

Authors: Matsubayashi H, Ishiwatari H, Sasaki K, Uesaka K, Ono H Abstract The number of patients with pancreatic cancer (PC) is currently increasing in both Korea and Japan. The 5-year survival rate of patients with PC 13.0%; however, resection with minimal invasion (tumor size: ≤10 mm) increases the 5-year survival rate to 80%. For this reason, early detection is essential, but most patients with early-stage PC are asymptomatic. Early detection of PC has been reported to require screening of high-risk individuals (HRIs), such as those with a family history of PC, inherited cancer syndromes, intraductal papillar...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPancreatic cystic lesions represent a growing public health dilemma, particularly as our population ages and cross-sectional imaging becomes more sensitive. Mucinous cysts carry a clinically significant risk of developing pancreatic cancer, which carries an extremely poor prognosis. Determining which cysts will develop cancer may be challenging, and surgical resection of the pancreas carries significant morbidity. The goal of this paper is to review the rationale for cyst ablation and discuss prior and current research on cyst ablation techniques and efficacy. Indications, contraindications, and fa...

Conclusion Pancreatic metastasis of lung cancer is rare and the prognosis is poor. Chemotherapy can prolong survival significantly. Local radiotherapy of the pancreas may alleviate local symptoms, improve quality of life, facilitate further systemic chemotherapy for patients to prolong survival. Patients with symptoms related to pancreatic metastases can benefit from the comprehensive treatment of chemotherapy combined with local pancreatic radiotherapy.

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) takes centre stage in the field of pancreatic pathology. It is the most common pancreatic neoplasm and carries a dismal prognosis with rising mortality rates. Tissue diagnosis focuses on the identification of PDAC and its distinction from non-neoplastic disorders such as chronic pancreatitis and rarer, less aggressive pancreatic neoplasms. Pathology also plays a key role in the assessment of well characterized macroscopic precursor lesions of PDAC: mucinous cystic neoplasms and intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms.

Conclusion: Age, lactates, GF, and APACHE II score are determined as mortality predictors for patients suffering from acute pancreatitis who developed IAH. The mortality rate is higher when the level of GF is decreasing and the level of lactate increasing. PMID: 30997789 [PubMed - in process]
