  • defined pancreas
  • The panel recommends that imaging should include a pancreatic computed tomography (CT) scan performed according to a defined pancreas protocol, such as triphasic cross-sectional imaging and thin slices, and that PET scan may be considered useful if CT results are equivocal.

  • chemotherapy
  • Secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine (SPARC) overexpression in pancreatic stromal fibroblasts is considered one of the major causes of chemotherapy resistance. (cancernetwork.com)
  • enzyme
  • His serum pancreatic enzyme levels were elevated, as were his C-reactive protein levels and white blood cell count. (mja.com.au)
  • Treatment focuses on enzyme and nutritional supplementation, pain management, pancreatic diabetes, and local organ complications, such as pseudocysts, bile duct or duodenal obstruction. (wikipedia.org)
  • malignant
  • While each gland may not be secreting the same substance, as long as there is an exocrine function to the cell, it is considered glandular and its malignant form is therefore named adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • went on to suggest that loss of the DCC gene and of p53 result in a malignant adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • scan
  • The scan revealed a bulky pancreatic head with surrounding lymphadenopathy and multiple non-specific hypodensities in the liver. (mja.com.au)
  • arise
  • Adenocarcinomas can arise in many tissues of the body owing to the ubiquitous nature of glands within the body, and, more fundamentally, to the potency of epithelial cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • acinar cells
  • PTPkappa interacts by co-immunoprecipitation with E-cadherin, α-catenin and β-catenin in pancreatic acinar cells prior to the dissolution of adherens junctions in a rat model of pancreatitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • The authors suggest that the presence of PTPkappa at the plasma membrane in association with the cadherin/catenin complex is important for the maintenance of adherens junction in pancreatic acinar cells, much as it was suggested above in melanoma cells. (wikipedia.org)
