Pancreatic cancer patients frequently show hyperglycemia, but it is uncertain whether hyperglycemia stimulates pancreatic cancer cells. We have investigated whether excess glucose induces hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) and stimulates glucose metabolism and cell migration in pancreatic cancer cells. We studied wild-type (wt) MiaPaCa2 pancreatic cancer(More)
Increased fatty acids (FAs) regulate pancreatic cancer progression, however, the detailed mechanism is not clear, and different forms of FAs may play diversified roles in pancreatic cancer. To elucidate the underlying mechanism, we compared the effects of four major types of FAs on pancreatic cancer growth both in cell culture and in a mouse model. HPAF(More)
