Recurrence after neoadjuvant therapy and resection of borderline resectable and locally advanced pancreatic cancer

ConclusionDespite neoadjuvant therapy leading to resection and relatively favorable pathologic tumor characteristics in BRPC/LAPC patients, more than 80% of patients experienced disease recurrence, 72.5% of which occurred at distant sites.

CONCLUSION: The 'triangle operation' for borderline resectable pancreatic head cancer can be achieved safely by laparoscopy in carefully selected patients.1-11 Proven experience in both open and laparoscopic pancreatic surgery is mandatory. PMID: 31802299 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract BACKGROUND: Neoadjuvant therapy has shown value in various cancer types. The role of neoadjuvant therapy in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), however, remains unknown. The aim of the present work is to evaluate the effect of neoadjuvant therapy on the survival of patients with borderline-resectable PDAC. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 2004 and 2015, 7730 patients with resectable PDAC and 1980 patients with borderline-resectable PDAC were identified from the National Cancer Database (NCDB). Survival was compared between resectable and borderline-resectable patients. Survival and pathologic chara...

CONCLUSIONS: NeoTx is not only cytotoxic, but has pleiotropic, beneficial effects on all cellular and non-cellular components of PCa. Combinational approaches including immunotherapy may unleash long-term and more effective anti-tumor responses and improve prognosis of PCa. PMID: 31585935 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 30 August 2019Source: Seminars in Ultrasound, CT and MRIAuthor(s): Axel Dallongeville, Lucie Corno, Stéphane Silvera, Isabelle Boulay-Coletta, Marc ZinsAbstractComputed Tomography remains the optimal imaging modality for both diagnosis and staging of pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Especially, CT is highly accurate in assessing the relationship of the tumor to critical arterial and venous structures, since their involvement can preclude surgical resection or indicate a neoadjuvant strategy in borderline resectable or locally advanced lesions. MRI provides additional staging information ...

Although pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is an aggressive malignancy, incremental progress has been realized over the past decade with new chemotherapeutic regimens, advanced surgical techniques, and an improved understanding of genetics. Although most patients are not candidates for surgical resection because of metastatic disease, many centers are focused on offering curative treatment for patients with borderline resectable (BR) or locally advanced (LA) tumors. These patients are treated with chemotherapy and radiation up front followed by surgical resection, and surgery often includes the resection and reconstr...

Conclusions In patients with BRPC who undergo resection after induction treatment, the OS was significantly better than in patients with RPC. Neoadjuvant treatment should be considered for all localized PDACs.

The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of significant pathologic response to NAT in borderline resectable pancreatic cancer (BRPC), and association of NAT regimen and other clinico-pathologic characteristics with pathologic...
