OBJECTIVES Previous studies that investigated the association between body mass index (BMI) and pancreatectomy outcomes have produced conflicting conclusions. We conducted this meta-analysis to assess the association between them. METHODS We searched PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library databases up to December 28, 2014. Patients were divided into(More)
Pathogenesis of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is thought to develop through the progression of precursor lesions, known as pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasias (PanIN). In the present study, we showed that c-Fos promoted proliferation, cell cycle and migration in pancreatic cancer cells. Caerulein was used to accelerate the pathogenesis of(More)
Gemcitabine is a commonly used chemotherapy drug in pancreatic cancer. The function of activator protein 1 (AP-1) is cell-specific, and its function depends on the expression of other complex members. In the present study, we added gemcitabine to the media of Panc-1 and SW1990 cells at clinically achieved concentrations (10 µM). Compared with constitutive(More)
Mutant p53 (mutp53) proteins promote tumor invasion and metastasis in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). However, the mechanism underlying sustained activation of mutp53 oncogenic signaling is currently unclear. In this study, we report that NOP14 nucleolar protein (NOP14) expression is upregulated in PDAC tumors and metastatic tissue specimens. NOP14(More)
Pancreatic cancer remains one of the most lethal malignancies, and insights into both personalized diagnosis and intervention of this disease are urgently needed. The rapid development of sequencing technologies has enabled the successive completion of a series of genetic and epigenetic sequencing studies of pancreatic cancer. The mutational landscape of(More)
