INTRODUCTION Obesity accelerates the development and progression of pancreatic cancer, though the mechanisms underlying this association are unclear. Adipocytes are biologically active, producing factors such as hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) that may influence tumor progression. We therefore sought to test the hypothesis that adipocyte-secreted factors(More)
Obesity accelerates development and growth of human pancreatic cancer. We recently reported similar findings in a novel murine model of pancreatic cancer in congenitally obese mice. The current experiments were designed to evaluate the effects of diet-induced obesity on pancreatic cancer growth. Thirty C57BL/6J female mice were fed either control 10% fat (n(More)
We have measured a light-intensity-dependent change in the refractive index of thin films of the amorphous semiconductor arsenic sulfide. In a novel type of nonlinearity, strongly absorbed light produces a relatively large change in the optical properties of the material at wavelengths where the absorption is weak. This represents a compromise between the(More)
