The article reports that the activation of nuclear factor #x03BA;B; in acinar cells as not provoking acute pancreatitis. The author reflects that acute pancreatitis does not result from the activation of nuclear factor #x03BA;B; in the pancreas. He cites experimental approaches wherein the activation of nuclear factor #x03BA;B; in acinar cells did not affect the pancreas. He suggests that the key question is whether it could be of some benefit in acute pancreatitis.

    Activation of the inhibitor of NF-B kinase/NF-B (IKK/NF-B) system and expression of proinflammatory mediators are major events in acute pancreatitis. However, the in vivo consequences of IKK activation on the onset and progression of acute pancreatitis remain unclear. Therefore, we modulated IKK...

    Pancreatic cancer is resistant to almost all cytotoxic drugs. Currently, gemcitabine appears to be the only clinically active drug but, because of pre-existing or acquired chemoresistance of most of the tumor cells, it failed to significantly improve the outcome of pancreatic carcinoma patients....

    OBJECTIVE--SIRT1, a class III histone/protein deacetylase, is known to interfere with the nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) signaling pathway and thereby has an anti-inflammatory function. Because of the central role of NF-κB in cytokine-mediated pancreatic β-cell damage, we postulated that...

    Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is an aggressive subtype of B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and accounts for 30% to 40% of NHL. Molecules targeting nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) are expected to be of therapeutic value in those tumors where NF-κB seems to play a unique survival role...
