    Polycystic liver disease (PCLD) is an inherited disorder caused by mutations in either PRKCSH (hepatocystin) or SEC63 (Sec63p). However, expression patterns of the implicated proteins in diseased and normal liver are unknown. We analyzed subcellular and cellular localization of hepatocystin and...

    Gallbladder carcinomas can be highly lethal neoplasms. Relatively little is known about the genetic abnormalities that underlie these tumors, particularly with respect to their timing in neoplastic progression. The authors evaluated 5 noninvasive dysplasias and 33 invasive gallbladder carcinomas...

    Mucin-producing tumor in the bile duct is referred to clinically as mucin-producing bile duct tumor (MPBT). Intraductal papillary neoplasm of the biliary tract that resembles an intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) of the pancreas is a rare category of MPBT and is not well...

    Background: Unresectable biliary tract carcinoma is known to demonstrate a poor prognosis. We conducted a single arm phase II study of LFP therapy (5-FU (5-fluorourasil) continuous infusion (CVI) and Low-dose consecutive (Cisplatin) CDDP) for advanced biliary tract malignancies basically on an...

    Malignant obstructive jaundice is caused by tumors arising from the head of the pancreas and biliary tree, or seen due to secondary metastases in the porta hepatis lymph nodes. Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that can be used for imaging...

    Background: The standard surgical procedure for intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasm of the pancreatic head is pylorus-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy. A less extensive resection may be justified because most intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasms are benign or of low-grade malignancy....
