International Consensus Guidelines for Management of Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms and Mucinous Cystic Neoplasms of the Pancreas
Ovarian-type stroma has been proposed as a requisite to distinguish MCN from IPMN, and some other distinct features to characterize IPMN and MCN have been identified, but there remain ambiguities between the two diseases.
Revisions of international consensus Fukuoka guidelines for the management of IPMN of the pancreas.
Modulation of Innate and Adaptive Immune Responses by Tofacitinib (CP-690,550)
In a model of established arthritis, CP-690,550 rapidly improved disease by inhibiting the production of inflammatory mediators and suppressing STAT1-dependent genes in joint tissue through a mechanism likely involving the inhibition of STAT1 signaling.
Randomized phase III study of gemcitabine plus S-1, S-1 alone, or gemcitabine alone in patients with locally advanced and metastatic pancreatic cancer in Japan and Taiwan: GEST study.
Monotherapy with S-1 demonstrated noninferiority to gemcitabine in overall survival with good tolerability and presents a convenient oral alternative for locally advanced and metastatic pancreatic cancer.
Epidemiological study of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors in Japan
There are large differences in GEP-NETs between Japan and Western nations, primarily due to differences in the presence of MEN-1 in NF-PETs and the location, symptomatic status, and prevalence of malignancy in GI- NETs.
Purification, characterization and biological significance of tumor-derived exosomes.
Data indicate that Tu-exosomes may have physiological functions, cultured with a human breast cancer cell line bound to the cell surface and increased tumor cell proliferation, indicate that it may have biological functions.
Interleukin-27 priming of T cells controls IL-17 production in trans via induction of the ligand PD-L1.
