BACKGROUND Recently a considerable number of promising clinical trials have been designed to perform infusion of stem cells by pancreatic arterial intervention to improve the endocrine function of the pancreas for better diabetes control. It is necessary to investigate the pancreatic body and tail (PBT) arterial system for human islets located mostly in the PBT and identify the predominant artery or arteries. However, the arterial system in the PBT is complicated and variable. In this study we…

The Arterial Supply of the Distal Part of the Pancreas
The vascularization of the distal part of the pancreas is highly variable and should be taken into consideration during surgery.
Delivery of therapeutic agents and cells to pancreatic islets: Towards a new era in the treatment of diabetes.
The latest strategies for targeted delivery of therapeutic agents and imaging reagents to pancreatic islet cells are discussed, including liposomes, lipid-assisted nanocarriers, and cationic polymers can be bioengineered to be immune-evasive, and their advantages to transport cargos into target cells make them appealing for pancreati islet-targeted delivery.
Autologous bone marrow mononuclear cell infusion and hyperbaric oxygen therapy in type 2 diabetes mellitus: an open-label, randomized controlled clinical trial.
BM-MNC infusion for type 2 diabetes mellitus improves islet function and metabolic control, with mild adverse effects, and HOT does not synergize with BM-M NC infusion.
Clinical effectiveness of combined interventional therapy as a salvage modality for unresectable pancreatic carcinoma.
The CIT group exhibited a significantly higher overall survival rate for patients with unresectable metastatic pancreatic cancer compared with the TACE and control groups, which suggests that a combination of different interventional techniques increases the survival of patients with unsectable pancreatic cancers.
Umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stromal Cell With Autologous Bone Marrow Cell Transplantation in Established Type 1 Diabetes: A Pilot Randomized Controlled Open-Label Clinical Study to Assess Safety and Impact on Insulin Secretion
Transplantation of UC-MSC and aBM-MNC was safe and associated with moderate improvement of metabolic measures in patients with established type 1 diabetes, and the treatment was well tolerated.
Splenic and Pancreatic Abscesses Associated with In Situ Thrombosis of Splenic Artery.
A 65-year-old man who was found to have acute complete splenic and distal pancreatic infarction and abscess formation attributable to in situ thrombosis of splenic artery is presented.


Multislice CT study of pancreatic head arterial dominance.
MS-CT images of vascular architecture enable evaluation from any angle, which is not possible with conventional angiography, making MS-CT a useful diagnostic imaging technique for understanding the vascular anatomy of the pancreatic head prior to conducting pancreatoduodenectomy for diseases of the Pancreas region.
The arterial blood supply of the pancreas: a review. V. The dorsal pancreatic artery
The authors underline the discordant opinions still existing regarding the incidence of the different ways the dorsal pancreatic artery arises, and discuss its uncertain embryologic development and surgical relevance.
Optimization of scan delay for routine abdominal 64-slice CT with body weight-adapted application of contrast material.
This data suggests an optimal scan delay for routine abdominal 64-slice CT of 85 sec regardless of scan direction.
Systemic administration of multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells reverts hyperglycemia and prevents nephropathy in type 1 diabetic mice.
Preclinical results suggest bone marrow-derived MSC transplantation as a cell therapy strategy to treat type 1 diabetes and prevent diabetic nephropathy, its main complication.
The Dynamic in vivo Distribution of Bone Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells after Infusion
Rat marrow-derived MSCs were ex vivo culture-expanded, labeled with 111In-oxine, and infused into syngeneic rats via intra-artery, intravenous and intraperitoneal cavity infusions, indicating multiple homing sites for injected M SCs and that the distribution of MSCS can be influenced by administration of vasodilator.
Multipotent stromal cells from human marrow home to and promote repair of pancreatic islets and renal glomeruli in diabetic NOD/scid mice
The results raised the possibility that hMSCs may be useful in enhancing insulin secretion and perhaps improving the renal lesions that develop in patients with diabetes mellitus.
Intra-arterial infusion of 5-fluorouracil, leucovorin, epirubicin and carboplatin (FLEC regimen) in unresectable pancreatic cancer: results of a ten-year experience.
The FLEC regimen given intra-arterially for unresectable pancreatic cancer (UPC) is well-tolerated and effective in patients with UPC.
Dynamic of Distribution of Human Bone Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells After Transplantation into Adult Unconditioned Mice
The results suggest that human MSC transplantation into unconditioned recipients represents an option for providing cellular therapy and avoids the complications associated with drugs or radiation conditioning.
Immunomodulatory Function of Bone Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Experimental Autoimmune Type 1 Diabetes1
Bone marrow-derived murine MSC is characterized for their ability to modulate immune responses in the context of type 1 diabetes, as represented in NOD mice, to provide important preclinical data supporting the basis for further development of allogeneic MSC-based therapies for T1D and, potentially, for other autoimmune disorders.
Fluorouracil vs gemcitabine chemotherapy before and after fluorouracil-based chemoradiation following resection of pancreatic adenocarcinoma: a randomized controlled trial.
The addition of gemcitabine to adjuvant fluorouracil-based chemoradiation was associated with a survival benefit for patients with resected pancreatic cancer, although this improvement was not statistically significant.
