    Pancreatic cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related death in the world. It is very urgent to find new therapeutic targets and improve the treatment. Cyclooxygenase 2 (Cox2), a regulator of inflammation signaling, has been found to be involved in tumorigenesis of various tumor types....

    Background: Bmi1 is an integral component of the Polycomb Repressive Complex 1 (PRC1) and is involved in the pathogenesis of multiple cancers. It also plays a key role in the functioning of endogenous stem cells and cancer stem cells. Previous work implicated a role for cancer stem cells in the...

    Pancreatic stellate cells (PaSCs) are myofibroblast-like cells found in the areas of the pancreas that have exocrine function. PaSCs are regulated by autocrine and paracrine stimuli and share many features with their hepatic counterparts, studies of which have helped further our understanding of...

    The omentum is a sheet-like tissue attached to the greater curvature of the stomach and contains secondary lymphoid organs called milky spots. The omentum has been used for its healing potential for over 100 years by transposing the omental pedicle to injured organs (omental transposition), but...

    The article focuses on a research conducted on the pancreatic stellate cells (PSCs). PSCs play an important role in the cellular and molecular mechanisms of pancreatic fibrogenesis. Fibrosis in the pancreas takes place due to necrosis or apoptosis, inflammation or duct obstruction. The initial...

  • Serum markers for predicting the severity of acute pancreatitis. Manabe, Tadao; Okada, Yuji // Journal of Gastroenterology;2004, Vol. 39 Issue 5, p504 

    Acute pancreatitis is an inflammatory disease that leads to acinar cell damage, interstitial edema, hemorrhaging, and migration of neutrophils into damaged pancreatic glands. Some patients develop severe acute pancreatitis that results in multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. The pathogenesis of...

    We show that transplantation of adult bone marrow-derived cells expressing c-kit reduces hyperglycemia in mice with streptozotocin-induced pancreatic damage. Although quantitative analysis of the pancreas revealed a low frequency of donor insulin-positive cells, these cells were not present at...
