PURPOSE The cancer stem cell hypothesis states that the capacity of a cancer to grow and propagate is dependent on a small subset of cells. To determine the significances of the cancer stem cell markers CD133, CD44, and CD24 using a comparative analysis with a focus on tumorigenicity. METHODS Four pancreatic cancer cell lines, Capan-1, Mia-PACA-2, Panc-1,(More)
OBJECTIVES We reviewed the pancreatectomies that were done for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma to evaluate patient survival and prognostic predictors. METHODS A review was performed on 94 patients who underwent surgical resection for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas from 1995 to 2002. The perioperative factors were compared between the proximal and(More)
The objectives were to evaluate the effectiveness of ultrasonography, computed tomography, and physical examination for diagnosing acute appendicitis with analyzing their accuracies and negative appendectomy rates in a clinical rather than research setting. A total of 2763 subjects were enrolled. Sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Ductal adenocarcinoma of the head of the pancreas can only be cured with pancreaticoduodenectomy. However, the prognosis after resection has been poor. This study analyzed the possible prognostic factors of resected ductal adenocarcinoma through pancreaticoduodenectomy in a single institution. METHODS Between Oct. 1994 and May. 2002, 81(More)
This study was performed to analyze the efficacy of the prophylactic use of octreotide (Novartis, Stein, Switzerland) for pancreatic fistula following a pancreaticoduodenectomy.
