A Combination of MUC5AC and CA19-9 Improves the Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer: A Multicenter Study
TLDR
MUC5AC is a valuable diagnostic biomarker, either alone or in combination with CA19-9, to differentiate PC from CP and benign controls and significantly improved the diagnostic accuracy for differentiating resectable cases from controls.
Biological determinants of radioresistance and their remediation in pancreatic cancer.
Changes in microRNA (miRNA) expression during pancreatic cancer development and progression in a genetically engineered KrasG12D;Pdx1-Cre mouse (KC) model
TLDR
The present study aids an understanding of miRNA expression patterns during PC pathogenesis and helps to facilitate the identification of promising and novel early diagnostic/prognostic markers and therapeutic targets.
Differential gene expression analysis of peripheral blood mononuclear cells reveals novel test for early detection of pancreatic cancer.
TLDR
A score-based model is identified that can differentiate resectable PC from CP better than CA19-9, potentiating that PBMC differential expression analysis may offer a novel tool for early PC diagnosis.
Evaluation of a Community Health Worker Intervention on Rates of Measles, Mumps and Rubella Immunization in a Somali Population in Lexington, Nebraska
TLDR
There is MMR vaccine specific hesitancy within the Somali population in Lexington, Nebraska that puts the community at risk for a measles outbreak, and using a community health worker intervention can help to improve MMR immunization rates within this population.
[Adherence, self-efficacy, physician visits in a clinical trial over 6 months in multiple sclerosis patients].
TLDR
Results could indicate that, on a short-term basis, patients can be motivated to adhere--probably as a result of the psychological aspects of the observational situation, but long-term changes in behaviour can probably only be achieved through qualified training.
The Impact of a Multifaceted Intervention on the Rate of Preventive Services Offered in a Student-Run Clinic
TLDR
The rate of preventive services can be improved in student-run clinics through the implementation of multi-faceted interventions to a level that meets national averages and targets.
Immunomodulating Therapy for Patients with Multiple Sclerosis: Health Technology Assessment and Guidelines
TLDR
A compromise was found to satisfy the needs of patients, the government and the pharmaceutical industry in order to realise treatment of the disease and shows the importance of evidence-based medicine, health technology assessment and guidelines as well as a possible and necessary flexibility to achieve a good medical service to patients with MS.
