The mutation of T790M in EGFR is a major mechanism of resistance to treatment with EGFR-TKIs. Only qualitative detection (presence or absence) of T790M has been described to date, however. Digital PCR (dPCR) analysis has recently been applied to the quantitative detection of target molecules in cancer with high sensitivity. In the present study, 25 tumor(More)
Routine endoscopic retrograde pancreatography (ERP) for pancreatic juice cytology (PJC) during management of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) is not recommended in the international consensus guidelines 2012. The aim of the present study was to investigate the roles of PJC in relation to the new stratification of clinical findings in the(More)
In patients with pancreatic ductal carcinoma (PDAC), EUS-FNA carries a risk of cancer seeding. To avoid this risk, we attempted to obtain preoperative cytological confirmation of adenocarcinoma by ERCP. The aim of this study was to assess the validity of our diagnostic strategy. The medical records of 124 consecutive patients who were investigated for(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) of the pancreas may have concomitant distinct pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). We evaluated the safety and usefulness of intraoperative irrigation cytology of the remnant pancreas (IICP) during pancreatectomy to detect remnant distinct PDAC in patients with IPMN. METHODS The(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to clarify the diagnostic significance of the presence of intranuclear inclusions in clear cell carcinoma (CCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed 98 imprint specimens and 53 ascites specimens from 98 ovarian carcinoma cases [28 CCCs, 37 serous carcinomas (SCs), 22 endometrioid carcinomas (ECs), and 11 mucinous(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical importance of intraoperative peritoneal cytology in patients with pancreatic cancer remains incompletely understood. METHODS Peritoneal washing samples were collected from 411 consecutive patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma from 1996 to 2014. Of the 411 patients, 335 underwent macroscopically curative resection and 76(More)
