Lobar decrease in 99mTc-GSA accumulation in hilar cholangiocarcinoma. (1/1182)

Hilar cholangiocarcinoma can obstruct hepatic ducts and involve the portal veins. Both biliary stasis and decrease in portal venous flow are known to reduce 99mTc-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid-galactosyl human serum albumin (GSA) accumulation. The specific relationship between these pathological conditions due to hilar cholangiocarcinomas and 99mTc-GSA accumulation has never been clarified. METHODS: Sixteen patients with hilar cholangiocarcinomas who underwent 99mTc-GSA liver scintigraphy were reviewed. The relationship between significant decrease in 99mTc-GSA accumulation and lobar biliary stasis, or decrease in the portal venous flow, was evaluated. Average counts of region of interest placed in both right and left lobes were compared in the same transaxial SPECT section. Count ratios of right and left lobes were calculated. RESULTS: Significant lobar decrease in 99mTc-GSA accumulation was observed in 6 of the 16 patients. Ipsilateral portal venous stenosis or obstruction was seen in all these 6 patients, whereas ipsilateral portal venous stenosis or obstruction was seen in only 1 of the other 10 patients. Symmetric bile duct dilatation was seen in 13 patients, and asymmetric bile duct dilatation was seen in 3. Lobar decrease in 99mTc-GSA accumulation correlated well with decrease in ipsilateral portal venous flow (P < 0.0005). The count ratio was significantly reduced when unilateral portal venous flow decreased (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: Using 99mTc-GSA liver scintigraphy, we can predict lobar decrease in ipsilateral portal venous flow and monitor hepatic functional lateralities in patients with hilar cholangiocarcinomas.  (+info)

Clinical value of K-ras codon 12 analysis and endobiliary brush cytology for the diagnosis of malignant extrahepatic bile duct stenosis. (2/1182)

Extrahepatic biliary stenosis can be caused by benign and malignant disorders. In most cases, a tissue diagnosis is needed for optimal management of patients, but the sensitivity of biliary cytology for the diagnosis of a malignancy is relatively low. The additional diagnostic value of K-ras mutational analysis of endobiliary brush cytology was assessed. Endobiliary brush cytology specimens obtained during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreaticography were prospectively collected from 312 consecutive patients with extrahepatic biliary stenosis. The results of conventional light microscopic cytology and K-ras codon 12 mutational analysis were compared and evaluated in view of the final diagnosis made by histological examination of the stenotic lesion and/or patient follow-up. The sensitivities of cytology and mutational analysis to detect malignancy were 36 and 42%, respectively. When both tests were combined, the sensitivity increased to 62%. The specificity of cytology was 98%, and the specificity of the mutational analysis and of both tests combined was 89%. Positive predictive values for cytology, mutational analysis, and both tests combined were 98, 92, and 94%, whereas the corresponding negative predictive values were 34, 34, and 44%, respectively. The sensitivity of K-ras mutational analysis was 63% for pancreatic carcinomas compared to 27% for bile duct, gallbladder, and ampullary carcinomas. K-ras mutational analysis can be considered supplementary to conventional light microscopy of endobiliary brush cytology to diagnose patients with malignant extrahepatic biliary stenosis, particularly in the case of pancreatic cancer. The presence of a K-ras codon 12 mutation in endobiliary brush cytology per se supports a clinical suspicion of malignancy, even when the conventional cytology is negative or equivocal.  (+info)

Villous adenoma of the bile ducts: a case report and a review of the reported cases in Korea. (3/1182)

Villous adenomas are benign epithelial lesions with malignant potential which can occur at any site in the gastrointestinal tract. They are usually encountered in the rectum and colon, less frequently in the small bowel and very rarely in the biliary trees. Nine cases of bile duct villous adenomas have been reported in the literature. However, 4 cases of bile duct villous adenomas have been reported in the Korean literature. Recently, we experienced a case of villous adenoma in the common hepatic duct in a 77-year-old man presenting with obstructive jaundice in which preoperative histologic diagnosis of villous adenoma played a critical role in managing this patient. Herein, we present a case report of bile duct villous adenoma and a review of the reported cases in Korea to help define and manage this rare disease entity in the bile ducts. In addition, confusing nomenclature of bile duct adenomas is discussed.  (+info)

Lymph node metastasis in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. (4/1182)

BACKGROUND: Lymph node metastasis is a significant prognostic factor in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. This study was aimed at investigating lymph node metastasis in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma and to examine whether the extent of metastasis affects outcomes after surgery. METHODS: From 1980 through 1996, 70 patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma underwent hepatectomy, with a 50% curative resection rate. Lymph node dissection was performed in 51 patients, and the presence of lymph node metastasis was examined microscopically. The metastatic nodes were divided into groups N1, N2 or N3 using the classification proposed by the Liver Cancer Study Group of Japan. RESULTS: Twenty-three patients had lymph node metastasis. Metastasis was to N1 nodes in 10 patients, to N2 nodes in nine patients and to N3 nodes in four patients. Nineteen patients had metastatic nodes in the hepatoduodenal ligament, which was the most common metastatic site regardless of tumor location. The five-year survival rate in patients with lymph node metastasis (0%) was significantly lower (p < 0.0001) than that in patients without lymph node metastasis (51 %); however, five-year survival rates did not differ between patients with metastases to N1, N2 and N3 nodes. CONCLUSIONS: Lymph nodes in the hepatoduodenal ligament may be sentinel nodes for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, and outcomes after surgery for patients with lymph node metastasis are poor regardless of the sites of nodal metastasis.  (+info)

Promoting effects of 3-chloro-4-(dichloromethyl)-5-hydroxy-2(5H)-furanone on rat glandular stomach carcinogenesis initiated with N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine. (5/1182)

The modifying effects of 3-chloro-4-(dichloromethyl)-5-hydroxy-2(5H)-furanone (MX), a mutagenic by-product in chlorinated water, on the development of glandular stomach cancers were investigated in Wistar rats. A total of 120 males, 6 weeks of age, were divided into six groups. After initiation with 100 ppm N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (MNNG) solution and 5% NaCl diet for 8 weeks, 30 rats each in groups 1-3 were given MX in the drinking water at concentrations of 30, 10, or 0 ppm for the following 57 weeks. Ten animals each in groups 4-6 were administered the MX without prior carcinogen exposure. There were no statistical significant differences in final body weights between the groups. The incidences and multiplicities of adenocarcinomas in the glandular stomachs were significantly higher (P < 0.05) in the initiated 30 ppm MX group than those in the MNNG/NaCl group. The incidences of atypical hyperplasias in the glandular stomachs were also significantly increased (P < 0.05 or 0.01) by the MX treatments. With their multiplicity, the effects were clearly dose dependent. Interestingly, the 30 ppm MX alone itself induced atypical hyperplasias in the pylorus, although the incidences and severity were low. Moreover, MX showed a tendency to enhance the development of intrahepatic cholangiocellular tumors and thyroid follicular cell tumors in the MNNG-treated animals. The results of the present study thus indicate that MX exerts promoting effects when given during the postinitiation phase of two-stage glandular stomach carcinogenesis in rats.  (+info)

Detection of Helicobacter DNA in bile from bile duct diseases. (7/1182)

Several species of Helicobacter colonize the hepatobiliary tract of animals and cause hepatobiliary diseases. The aim of this study is to investigate Helicobacter found in the biliary tract diseases of humans. Thirty-two bile samples (15 from bile duct cancer, 6 from pancreatic head cancer, and 11 from intrahepatic duct stone) were obtained by percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage. Polymerase chain reaction analysis using Helicobacter specific urease A gene and 16S rRNA primers, bile pH measurement, and Helicobacter culture were performed. Helicobacter DNA was detected in 37.5%, and 31.3% by PCR with ureA gene, and 16S rRNA, respectively. The bile pH was not related to the presence of Helicobacter. The cultures were not successful. In conclusion, Helicobacter can be detected in the bile of patients with bile duct diseases. The possibility of pathogenesis of biliary tract diseases in humans by these organisms will be further investigated.  (+info)

Expression of p73, a novel protein related to the p53 tumour suppressor p53, and apoptosis in cholangiocellular carcinoma of the liver. (8/1182)

p73, the first homologue of the tumour suppressor protein p53, was recently discovered on chromosome 1p36 and has been shown to induce apoptosis in a p53-like manner. The present study was performed with the aim of investigating the expression of p53, its new homologue p73 and the occurrence of apoptosis in cholangiocellular carcinoma. Protein levels of p73 were examined in 41 patients with curatively (R0-) resected cholangiocellular carcinomas with an antiserum, raised against a peptide in the N-terminal domain of p73. The incidence of mutations in the p53 gene was analysed by direct sequencing and also immunohistochemically. Apoptotic cell death was assessed using in-situ end-labelling (ISEL) technique in combination with morphological criteria. The results obtained were correlated with patient survival. Immunostaining of p73 protein was detected in 17/41 carcinomas examined (41%). The immunoreactivity was confined to the cell nucleus. In 15/41 patients (37%), mutations of the p53 gene were observed. Eleven out of these 15 patients stained also positive for p73. In contrast, out of 26 patients without any detectable p53 mutation, only six exhibited p73 immunostaining. We failed to observe a correlation between p73 expression or p53 and apoptosis within a given tumour. Survival analysis including the parameters stage and grade of disease, p73 and p53, and also apoptosis, showed that tumour stage and grade as well as p53 and p73 were significantly related to prognosis. In Cox regression survival analysis, however, only extent of primary tumour and lymph node status had an independent prognostic impact. Our results with a high prevalence of p73 within tumours harbouring mutated p53 gene suggest that p73 could compensate for p53 function. We failed to establish p73 or p53 as independent prognostic factors in cholangiocellular carcinoma of the liver.  (+info)

BACKGROUND/AIMS Mucin-hypersecreting bile duct tumor is rare, and has an unusual histologic characteristic of having various degrees of cellular atypia ranging from dysplasia to invasive carcinoma in the same specimen. To gain insight into the role of p16, p14 and p53 in the carcinogenic process of bile duct tumor, we analyzed the expression status of these proteins in mucin-hypersecreting bile duct tumor. METHODS Immunohistochemical staining of p16, p14 and p53 were performed in 34 paraffin embedded tissues obtained from 22 patients of mucin-hypersecreting bile duct tumor. RESULTS Thirty-four specimens were categorized into low-grade dysplasia (9), high-grade dysplasia (4), carcinoma in situ (CIS, 11) and invasive carcinoma (10) based on the degree of cytologic and structural atypia. p53 overexpressions were found in 6 (17.6%, 3 in CIS, 3 in invasive carcinoma) and more frequently observed in the advanced histologic stages (p|0.05). Loss of p16 staining was found only in 2 (6%) of low-grade

Cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) usually develops in the bile duct system that arises from the liver and bile ducts and ends at the small intestine. Cancer that develops in the section of bile ducts within and outside the liver is called as intrahepatic and hilar cholangiocarcinoma, respectively. Distal cholangiocarcinoma is developed in the bile section that is associated with small intestine. Prognostic factors of cholangiocarcinoma are highly disputable.
For cases of inoperable bile duct carcinoma, we perform intraluminal irradiation using an 192iridium wire following endoprostheses implantation. However, the effectiveness of this procedure is uncertain, and may lead to decreased patient quality of life in some cases. Therefore, we obtained samples of bile duct carcinoma either by percutaneous transhepatic cholangioscope (PTCS) or by surgery, and studied whether expression levels of Ki-67 and p53 in these tissues could predict the effectiveness of radiotherapy (RT). Immunohistochemistry was used to determine the expression of p53 and Ki-67 in 40 resected and 18 biopsy specimens. All biopsy specimens were stage IVA according to UICC classification. Labeling indices were calculated as percentage of positively stained tumor cell nuclei of total tumor cells counted. Samples were divided into two groups according to labeling index (LI). In the resected specimens, Ki-67 LI was significantly higher in cases positive for lymphatic invasion than in ...

Purpose: MEK inhibition has clinical activity against biliary cancers, and might therefore be successfully combined with gemcitabine; one of the most active chemotherapy agents for these cancers. As gemcitabine is active in S-phase, and the ERK pathway has a major role driving cell cycle progression, concurrent use of a MEK inhibitor could potentially antagonize the effect of gemcitabine. We therefore tested the sequence dependence of the combination of gemcitabine and the MEK inhibitor AZD6244 using a series of biliary cancer models. Experimental Design: Primary xenografts were established from patients with gallbladder and distal bile duct cancer, and grown in SCID mice at the subcutaneous site. Plasma and tumor drug levels, and the time course for recovery of ERK signaling and S-phase were measured in tumor-bearing mice treated for 48hr with AZD6244 and then monitored for 48hr off treatment. Based on these results, two different treatment schedules combining AZD6244 with gemcitabine were ...

Slug is an E-cadherin repressor and a suppressor of PUMA (p53 upregulated modulator of apoptosis) and it has recently been demonstrated that Slug plays an important role in controlling apoptosis. In this study, we examined whether Slugs ability to silence expression suppresses the growth of cholangiocarcinoma cells and/or sensitizes cholangiocarcinoma cells to chemotherapeutic agents through induction of apoptosis. We targeted the Slug gene using siRNA (Slug siRNA) via full Slug cDNA plasmid (Slug cDNA) transfection of cholangiocarcinoma cells. Slug siRNA, cisplatin, or Slug siRNA in combination with cisplatin, were used to treat cholangiocarcinoma cells in vitro. Western blot was used to detect the expression of Slug, PUMA, and E-cadherin protein. TUNEL, Annexin V Staining, and cell cycle analysis were used to detect apoptosis.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Carcinoma of the extrahepatic bile ducts. AU - Wei, T. C.. AU - Wei, P. L.. AU - Yu, S. C.. AU - Lee, P. H.. AU - Hsu, S. C.. PY - 1995. Y1 - 1995. N2 - Fifty-two patients with carcinoma of the extrahepatic bile ducts were reviewed. There were 28 men and 24 women whose ages ranged from 31 to 78 years, with a mean age of 58 years. Symptoms, signs and laboratory results were primarily the result of bile duct obstruction. The most valuable diagnostic procedures were percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. In 28 patients the tumor was located in the upper, 9 in the middle and 12 in the lower common bile duct. In the other three patients the tumor was diffuse. The resectability rate was 21.2% (11/52). Of the remaining patients, 10 (19.2%) had T-tube drainage, 5 (9.6%) had biliary digestive anastomosis, 18 (34.6%) had percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage and 8 (15.4%) had biopsy only. The histologic diagnosis was sclerosing in ...

Background and Aims: It is a challenge to collect samples from bile duct strictures to diagnose patients with cholangiocarcinoma. We investigated the utility of the Spyglass Spyscope, a single-operator endoscope that is used to perform cholangiopancreatoscopy, to identify extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma in patients who were not diagnosed with this disorder by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) cytology or endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) analyses. Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis of data from 30 patients (median age, 67 years; 67percent male) with indeterminate extrahepatic biliary strictures who were ultimately diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma but had inconclusive results from initial biliary ductal brush cytology and EUS-FNA analyses. Patients then underwent cholangioscopy by using the Spyglass Spyscope and intraductal biopsy analysis. None of the patients had a definitive mass in abdominal imaging or EUS analyses. Results: The ...

Diabetes drugs in dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor class can double risks of developing bile duct cancer, also known as cholangiocarcinoma
Cholangiocarcinoma is a malignant tumor that originates from the bile duct epithelium (Roberts et al., 1997). Based on its anatomical location in the biliary tree, cholangiocarcinoma is conventionally classified by the World Health Organization as an intrahepatic (ICC) or extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ECC) (Bosman et al., 2010; Patel, 2011). ICC and ECC are biologically distinct, and therefore manifest substantial differences in terms of incidence, mortality, and risk factors (Cardinale et al., 2010). Cholangiocarcinoma has a poor prognosis because it is notoriously difficult to diagnose due to its late clinical presentation, and is refractory to conventional chemotherapy and radiation therapy (Blechacz and Gores, 2008; Blechacz et al., 2011; Khan et al., 2012). Gemcitabine and cisplatin has become the standard regimen for patients with advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma (Ramirez-Merino et al., 2013; Valle et al., 2010). However, response to the combination chemotherapy in ...
Bile duct cancer. Coloured angiogram (X-ray) of a patients common bile duct (dark red, centre right) that has been blocked by cancer. The cancer (not seen) has caused a narrowing, or stricture, of the duct. A stent (fine mesh tube, lower frame) has been permanently inserted into the duct to correct the stricture. A tube (catheter) inside the stent will be removed when fluid has drained from the duct. Bile fluid, secreted by the liver cells, emulsifies ingested fats. It drains into the small intestine through the common bile duct when food enters the intestine. A contrast medium injected into the duct makes it visible on X-ray. - Stock Image M134/0418
Bile duct strictures are either benign or malignant. Malignant strictures are usually short and irregular with shouldering margins, as in this case. This suggests the diagnosis of hilar cholangiocarcinoma (Klatskin tumor), but there is no pathol...

p16Ink4 and p15Ink4B are cyclin-dependent kinase 4 inhibitors and link to the regulation of cell cycle in mammalian cells. The genes encoding these inhibitors are located at 9p21, which is a frequent site of allelic loss in various types of tumors. Twenty-five primary biliary tract cancers were examined for somatic mutations in p16Ink4/CDKN2, p15Ink4B/MTS2, p53, and K-ras genes and allelic loss of 9p21 by microsatellite analysis. Four biliary tract cancer cell lines were analyzed for homozygous deletions and point mutations. We found frequent homozygous deletions in p16Ink4/CDKN2 and p15Ink4B/MTS2 genes in the biliary tract cancer cell lines. Each cancer cell line had alteration of either p16Ink4/CDKN2, p15Ink4B/MTS2, or p53 genes. In primary tumors, 16 of 25 (64%) biliary tract cancers had point mutations in the p16Ink4/CDKN2 gene. These include 14 missense and 2 silent mutations. The frequency of mutations in gall bladder cancer and hilar bile duct cancer were 80% (8 of 10) and 63% (5 of 8), ...

Evidence on the association between physical activity and risk of hepatobiliary cancers is inconclusive. We examined this association in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition cohort (EPIC). We identified 275 hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cases, 93 intrahepatic bile duct cancers (IHBCs), and 164 non-gallbladder extrahepatic bile duct cancers (NGBCs) among 467,336 EPIC participants (median follow-up 14.9 years). We estimated cause-specific hazard ratios (HRs) for total physical activity and vigorous physical activity and performed mediation analysis and secondary analyses to assess robustness to confounding (e.g. due to hepatitis virus infection). In the EPIC cohort, the multivariable-adjusted HR of HCC was 0.55 (95% CI 0.38-0.80) comparing active and inactive individuals. Regarding vigorous physical activity, for those reporting ,2 hours/week compared to those with no vigorous activity, the HR for HCC was 0.50 (95% CI 0.33-0.76).

Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is a highly lethal malignant tumor arising from the biliary tract epithelium. that this Nes overexpression of IL-6 in CCA effectively suppresses the expression of miR-370 from your maternal allele, lending support to the theory that miR-370 silencing in human CCA follows a classic two-hit mechanism. Introduction Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is an Arry-380 aggressive tumor of the biliary tract [1]. CCAs are usually diagnosed late in their progression, and the patient survival is usually measured in months [2]. Molecular characterization of CCAs further suggested that inflammation and cholestasis, through modulation of genes involved in DNA damage repair, promote cancer development [1]. IL-6 is usually a recognized mitogen and survival factor in human CCA and can contribute to tumor pathogenesis or progression [3]. Therefore, it appears that elucidation of pathways downstream of IL-6 merits further investigation. DNA methylation refers to the addition of a methyl group to a ...
Objective: The study aimed to identify potential cell signaling pathways and protein targets of actions of atractylodin and β-eudesmol in cholangiocarcinoma, the two active compounds isolated from Atracylodes lancea using proteomics approach. Method: The cholangiocarcinoma cell line, CL-6, was treated with each compound for 3 and 6 hours, and the proteins from both intra- and extracellular components were extracted. LC-MS/MS was applied following the separation of the extract proteins by SDS-PAGE and digestion with trypsin. Signaling pathways and protein expression were analyzed by MASCOT and STITCH software. Results: A total of 4,323 and 4,318 proteins were identified from intra- and extracellular components, respectively. Six and 4 intracellular proteins were linked with the signaling pathways (apoptosis, cell cycle control, and PI3K-AKT) of atractylodin and β-eudesmol, respectively. Four and 3 extracellular proteins were linked with the signaling pathways (NF-κB and PI3K-AKT) of atractylodin and

Safety Profile. The most common treatment-related adverse events among all patients who received ivosidenib (including after crossover) included nausea (32.1%), diarrhea (28.8%), fatigue (23.7%), cough (19.2%), abdominal pain (18.6%), ascites (18.6%), decreased appetite (17.3%), anemia (16.0%), and vomiting (16.0%). Grade 3 adverse events were reported in 46% of patients treated with ivosidenib compared to 36% of patients treated with placebo. More of the placebo arm (8.5% vs. 5.8%) discontinued treatment due to toxicity, and ivosidenib was associated with better physical and emotional functioning on quality-of-life measures.. These pivotal data demonstrate the clinical relevance and benefit of ivosidenib in patients with IDH1-mutated cholangiocarcinoma and establish the role for genomic testing in this rare cancer with a high unmet need, Dr. Abou-Alfa said. All patients with cholangiocarcinoma should be tested for the IDH1 mutation, he maintained.. FIGHT-202. FIGHT-202 was a global, ...

ROS1 is one of 58 receptor tyrosine kinases, and one of two orphan receptor tyrosine kinases where its ligand is unknown. ROS1 is evolutionarily related to ALK. ROS1 rearrangement was discovered in glioblastoma in 1987, in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in 2007, and in cholangiocarcinoma in 2011. While the clinicopathologic characteristics of ROS1-rearranged glioblastoma and cholangiocarcinoma patients remain to be defined, the clinicopathologic characteristics of ROS1-rearranged NSCLC patients have recently been described. Although ROS1 shares only 49% amino acid sequence homology with ALK in the kinase domains, several ALK inhibitors have demonstrated in vitro inhibitory activity against ROS1. With the recent US approval of crizotinib, a multi-targeted ALK/MET kinase inhibitor, for the treatment of ALK-rearranged NSCLC, attention has turned to ROS1-rearranged tumors, especially NSCLC. The next few years should witness a rapid pace of clinical research in ROS1-rearranged tumors utilizing available
