Teachers often learn technology skills and integration strategies in intensive seminars, ineffective means for professional learning because experiences are seldom transferred to instructional practices. Thus, effective technology integration requires teachers to obtain learning experiences within the context of their teaching so they can practice, reflect,(More)
PURPOSE Pancreatic carcinoma is one of the deadliest cancers with few effective treatments. Gold nanoparticles (AuNP) are potentially therapeutic because of the safety demonstrated thus far and their physiochemical characteristics. We used the astounding heating rates of AuNPs in nonionizing radiofrequency (RF) radiation to investigate human pancreatic(More)
BACKGROUND Although hepatic metastasectomy is well established for colorectal and neuroendocrine cancer, the approach to hepatic metastases from other sites is not well defined. We sought to examine the management of noncolorectal non-neuroendocrine liver metastases. STUDY DESIGN A retrospective review from 4 major liver centers identified patients who(More)
By identifying aggressive cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) in patients who are at high risk for recurrences or second primaries after resection, intensive surveillance and therapy may decrease morbidity and mortality. We investigated the role of nuclear morphometry (karyometry) in differentiating between aggressive and nonaggressive cSCC. We(More)
CONTEXT While perioperative mortality after pancreaticoduodenectomy is decreasing, key factors remain to be elucidated. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate inpatient mortality after pancreaticoduodenectomy in the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS), a representative inpatient database in the USA. METHODS Patient discharge data(More)
The role of transforming growth factor beta-type-1 (TGFβ1) in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) progression is stage-dependent. We hypothesized that TGFβ1 expression is associated with survival and proliferation markers in patients with early-stage PDAC. We acquired clinicopathologic, treatment, and mRNA expression data from The Cancer Genome Atlas(More)
Purpose: Pancreatic carcinoma is one of the deadliest cancers with few effective treatments. Gold nanoparticles (AuNP) are potentially therapeutic because of the safety demonstrated thus far and their physiochemical characteristics.

INTRODUCTION Pancreatic VIPomas are exceedingly rare, with an annual incidence of less than 1 per million. Most VIPomas are metastatic at diagnosis, with the liver being the most common site of spread. PRESENTATION OF CASE We describe a highly unusual case of a metastatic pancreatic VIPoma to an ovary in a 54 year-old patient. She was ten years out from(More)
Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN) are pancreatic lesions with uncertain biologic behavior. This study sought objective, accurate prediction tools, through the use of quantitative histopathological signatures of nuclear images, for classifying lesions as chronic pancreatitis (CP), IPMN, or pancreatic carcinoma (PC). Forty-four pancreatic(More)
