Hello, I am a non-traditional student and I am looking to make a career change. The careers that I am interested in are dentistry and anesthesiologist assistant. I have shadowed and done my research on both professions and I love them both which is why I am having a difficult time making a decision. The prerequisites for dental and AA school are identical as well as the earning potential unless the dentist is a specialist or private practice owner. I don’t have any debt and I am currently...

This study aimed to analyze the clinical safety and effectiveness of endoscopic ultrasound-guided celiac plexus neurolysis (EUS-CPN) in alleviating intractable abdominal pain caused by advanced pancreatic cancer. A total of 58 patients with inoperable pancreatic cancer who underwent EUS-CPN from May 2015 to December 2017 were enrolled. Pain levels before and after EUS-CPN were assessed and compared using the Visual Analogue Scale. The preoperative Visual Analogue Scale score was 8.2±2.3, which decreased significantly to 3.6±1.5 at 2 days after EUS-CPN and to 2.2±0.8 after 1 month. The response rate was...

By HANS DUVEFELT, MD A lot of Americans think they should be able to make an appointment with a specialist on their own, and view the referral from a primary care provider as an unnecessary roadblock. This “system” often doesn’t work, because of the way medical specialties are divided up. If belly pain is due to gallbladder problems you need a general surgeon. If it’s due to pancreas cancer, you need an oncologic surgeon. If the cause is Crohn’s disease, any gastroenterologist will do, but with Sphincter of Oddi problems, you’ll need a gastroenterologist who does ERCPs, and not ...

Conclusion The expression of the components of the PTN-MK-RPTPβ/ζ axis in immune cells and in inflammatory diseases suggests important roles for this axis in inflammation. Pleiotrophin has been recently identified as a limiting factor of metainflammation, a chronic pathological state that contributes to neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration. Pleiotrophin also seems to potentiate acute neuroinflammation independently of the inflammatory stimulus while MK seems to play different -even opposite- roles in acute neuroinflammation depending on the stimulus. Which are the functions of MK and PTN in chronic neuroinfla...

This study investigated the role of trypsin-protease activated receptor-2 (PAR-2) in pancreatic cancer pain. Pancreatic tissue samples were collected from pancreatic cancer (n=22) and control patients (n=22). Immunofluorescence analyses confirmed colocalization of PAR-2 and neuronal markers in pancreatic cancer tissues. Trypsin levels and protease activities were higher in pancreatic cancer tissue specimens than in the controls. Supernatants from cultured human pancreatic cancer tissues (PC supernatants) induced substance P and calcitonin gene-related peptide release in dorsal root ganglia (DRG) neurons, and FS-NH2, a sele...
