A Nomogram for Individual Prediction of Poor Prognosis After Radical Surgery in Patients with Primary Pancreatic Duct Adenocarcinoma.
CONCLUSIONS Our study presents a valid and practical model to predict prognosis of pancreatic cancer patients, which contributes to individualized therapy by assisting surgeons to predict poor prognosis in patients who received radical surgery. PMID: 32088726 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Egger B, Schirmer MD, Dubost F, Nardin MJ, Rost NS, Golland P Abstract We propose and demonstrate a joint model of anatomical shapes, image features and clinical indicators for statistical shape modeling and medical image analysis. The key idea is to employ a copula model to separate the joint dependency structure from the marginal distributions of variables of interest. This separation provides flexibility on the assumptions made during the modeling process. The proposed method can handle binary, discrete, ordinal and continuous variables. We demonstrate a simple and efficient way to include binary, discr...
CONCLUSIONS: The introduction of spacer sequence between chelator and BBN(7-14) led to improved bidistribution. Analogue with tri-Gly spacer is the more promising radiopeptide for targeting GRP receptor than Ser conjugate. Therefore, these analogs can be considered as a candidate for the identification of bombesin-positive tumors. PMID: 32497000 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: In the present case, the black stain most likely results from intrapleural haemolysis following haemorrhage. Pleural fluid bilirubin may be useful in evaluating pleural effusion, especially if black.
In this study, a PET camera was used to examine individual differences in the D2 system in a group consisting of 181 healthy individuals between the age of 64 and 68. All participants also had to take part in an all-inclusive performance test of the long-term episodic memory, working memory and processing speed along with an MRI assessment (which was used to measure the size of various parts of the brain). Researchers could see that the D2 system was positively linked to episodic memory, but not to working memory or to processing speed by relating PET registrations to the cognitive data. Researchers could also see that the...
Abstract: Stroke is a dramatic complication of pancreatic cancer with mechanisms related to oncological disease. A better description of the characteristics of cerebrovascular events would help better understand the pathogeny and protect vulnerable patients. We thus conducted a descriptive analysis of clinical, biological, and radiological features of patients from our centers and literature. We reviewed consecutive cases of patients who presented cerebrovascular events and pancreatic cancer in 4 stroke units in Lorrain (France) between January 1, 2009 and March 31, 2015, and all reported cases of literature. We identifie...
CONCLUSIONS: The combination of cetuximab, gemcitabine, and radiation resulted in significant toxicity. A recommended phase II dose could not be determined. PMID: 23077684 [PubMed]
