- miR-320c regulates gemcitabine-resistance in pancreatic cancer via SMARCC1. Iwagami, Y; Eguchi, H; Nagano, H; Akita, H; Hama, N; Wada, H; Kawamoto, K; Kobayashi, S; Tomokuni, A; Tomimaru, Y; Mori, M; Doki, Y // British Journal of Cancer;7/23/2013, Vol. 109 Issue 2, p502
Background:Gemcitabine-based chemotherapy is the standard treatment for pancreatic cancer. However, the issue of resistance remains unresolved. The aim of this study was to identify microRNAs (miRNAs) that govern the resistance to gemcitabine in pancreatic cancer.Methods:miRNA microarray...
- Salivary MicroRNA in Pancreatic Cancer Patients. Humeau, Marine; Vignolle-Vidoni, Alix; Sicard, Flavie; Martins, Frédéric; Bournet, Barbara; Buscail, Louis; Torrisani, Jérôme; Cordelier, Pierre // PLoS ONE;Jun2015, Vol. 10 Issue 6, p1
Background: Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in Western countries, with the lowest 1-year survival rate among commonly diagnosed cancers. Reliable biomarkers for pancreatic cancer diagnosis are lacking and are urgently needed to allow for curative surgery. As...
- â€˜One also needs a bit of trust in the doctor â€¦ â€™: a qualitative interview study with pancreatic cancer patients about their perceptions and views on information and treatment decision-making. Schildmann, J.; Ritter, P.; Salloch, S.; Uhl, W.; Vollmann, J. // Annals of Oncology;Sep2013, Vol. 24 Issue 9, p2444
Background Information about diagnosis, treatment options and prognosis has been emphasized as a key to empower cancer patients to make treatment decisions reflecting their values. However, surveys indicate that patients' preferences regarding information and treatment decision-making differ. In...
