Gallstones, cholecystectomy and risk of cancers of the liver, biliary tract and pancreas. (1/338)

To examine the association between gallstones and cholecystectomy, we conducted a nationwide population-based cohort study in Denmark. Patients with a discharge diagnosis of gallstones from 1977 to 1989 were identified from the Danish National Registry of Patients and followed up for cancer occurrence until death or the end of 1993 by record linkage to the Danish Cancer Registry. Included in the cohort were 60 176 patients, with 471 450 person-years of follow-up. Cancer risks were estimated by standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) stratified by years of follow-up and by cholecystectomy status. Among patients without cholecystectomy, the risks at 5 or more years of follow-up were significantly elevated for cancers of liver (SIR = 2.0, CI = 1.2-3.1) and gallbladder (SIR = 2.7, CI = 1.5-4.4) and near unity for cancers of extrahepatic bile duct (SIR = 1.1), ampulla of Vater (SIR = 1.0) and pancreas (SIR = 1.1). The excess risk of liver cancer was seen only among patients with a history of hepatic disease. Among cholecystectomy patients, the risks at 5 or more years of follow-up declined for cancers of liver (SIR = 1.1) and extrahepatic bile duct (SIR = 0.7), but were elevated for cancers of ampulla of Vater (SIR = 2.0, CI = 1.0-3.7) and pancreas (SIR = 1.3, CI = 1.1-1.6). These findings confirm that gallstone disease increases the risk of gallbladder cancer, whereas cholecystectomy appears to increase the risk of cancers of ampulla of Vater and pancreas. Further research is needed to clarify the carcinogenic risks associated with gallstones and cholecystectomy and to define the mechanisms involved.  (+info)

Cancer risks in BRCA2 mutation carriers. (2/338)

BACKGROUND: Carriers of germline mutations in the BRCA2 gene are known to be at high risk of breast and ovarian cancers, but the risks of other cancers in mutation carriers are uncertain. We investigated these risks in 173 breast-ovarian cancer families with BRCA2 mutations identified at 20 centers in Europe and North America. METHODS: Other cancer occurrence was determined in a final cohort of 3728 individuals, among whom 681 persons had breast or ovarian cancer and 3047 persons either were known mutation carriers, were first-degree relatives of known mutation carriers, or were first-degree relatives of breast or ovarian cancer patients. Incidence rates were compared with population-specific incidence rates, and relative risks (RRs) to carriers, together with 95% confidence intervals (CIs), were estimated by use of a maximum likelihood approach. Three hundred thirty-three other cancers occurred in this cohort. RESULTS: Statistically significant increases in risks were observed for prostate cancer (estimated RR = 4.65; 95% CI = 3.48-6.22), pancreatic cancer (RR = 3.51; 95% CI = 1. 87-6.58), gallbladder and bile duct cancer (RR = 4.97; 95% CI = 1. 50-16.52), stomach cancer (RR = 2.59; 95%CI = 1.46-4.61), and malignant melanoma (RR = 2.58; 95% CI = 1.28-5.17). The RR for prostate cancer for men below the age of 65 years was 7.33 (95% CI = 4.66-11.52). Among women who had already developed breast cancer, the cumulative risks of a second, contralateral breast cancer and of ovarian cancer by the age of 70 years were estimated to be 52.3% (95% CI = 41.7%-61.0%) and 15.9% (95% CI = 8.8%-22.5%), respectively. CONCLUSIONS: In addition to the large risks of breast and ovarian cancers, BRCA2 mutations may be associated with increased risks of several other cancers.  (+info)

Time-resolved immunofluorometric assay of trypsin-1 complexed with alpha(1)-antitrypsin in serum: increased immunoreactivity in patients with biliary tract cancer. (3/338)

BACKGROUND: Increased serum concentrations of trypsin immunoreactivity occur in patients with biliary tract cancer. To characterize this trypsin, we developed a sensitive time-resolved immunofluorometric assay for trypsin-1 complexed with alpha(1)-antitrypsin (AAT) and studied the concentrations of this complex in sera from healthy individuals (n = 130) and patients with benign biliary disease (n = 32), biliary tract cancer (n = 17), pancreatic cancer (n = 27), and hepatocellular cancer (n = 12). METHODS: We used a trypsin-1-specific monoclonal antibody on the solid phase and a europium-labeled polyclonal antibody to AAT as tracer. The detection limit was 0.42 microgram/L. The validity of the trypsin-1-AAT test for detection of biliary tract cancer was compared with trypsin-2-AAT and CA19-9. RESULTS: Increased concentrations of trypsin-1-AAT (>33 microgram/L) were found in 76% of patients with biliary tract cancer, and the concentrations were significantly higher than in those with benign biliary disease (P <0. 0001). The median concentration of trypsin-1-AAT in serum from patients with biliary tract cancer was 3.7-fold higher than in healthy controls, 2.6-fold higher than in patients with benign biliary tract disease, 1.7-fold higher than in patients with pancreatic cancer, and 2.0-fold higher than in patients with hepatocellular cancer. CONCLUSIONS: Of the markers studied, trypsin-1-AAT had the largest area (0.83) under the receiver operating curve in differentiating biliary tract cancer from benign biliary tract disease. Our results suggest that trypsin-1-AAT is a new potential marker for biliary tract cancer.  (+info)

Genetic detection for micrometastasis in lymph node of biliary tract carcinoma. (4/338)

The presence of regional lymph node metastasis is one of the most significant poor-prognosis factors in patients with biliary tract carcinoma. To establish a sensitive reverse transcription (RT)-PCR assay to detect micrometastases in lymph nodes of biliary tract carcinoma, we first investigated the optimal markers in biliary tract carcinoma. The expressions of the six candidates for a suitable RT-PCR marker [mammaglobin B, carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), cytokeratin (CK) 20, prostate-specific antigen, and melanoma antigens (MAGE-1 and MAGE-3)] were evaluated in two bile duct cancer cell lines and human biliary tract carcinoma tissues. Of 32 carcinoma tissues, mammaglobin B, CEA, prostate-specific antigen, MAGE-1, MAGE-3, and CK 20 were expressed in 28 (88%), 26 (81%), 4 (13%), 5 (16%), 7 (22%), and 9 (28%), respectively. Mammaglobin B and CEA were considered to be good markers of the six candidates. We then examined 209 lymph nodes obtained from 15 patients with biliary tract carcinoma by RT-PCR assay using both mammaglobin B and CEA and compared the results with those of histological examination. All of 20 histologically positive lymph nodes for metastasis displayed the PCR product(s) of marker genes. Of 189 histologically negative nodes, 24 (13%) nodes expressed mammaglobin B and/or CEA mRNA, suggesting the presence of micrometastasis. Our findings suggest that mammaglobin B and CEA could be useful RT-PCR markers for the detection of lymph node micrometastases in biliary tract carcinomas. Our RT-PCR assay allows accurate clinical staging necessary for patient stratification with respect to adjuvant therapy after surgery.  (+info)

Chemoprevention of biliary carcinogenesis in syrian hamsters by the novel carboxamide derivative IS-741 after initiation with N-nitrosobis(2-oxopropyl)amine (BOP). (5/338)

To elucidate the possible inhibitory effect of a novel carboxamide derivative (IS-741) on biliary carcinogenesis, Syrian hamsters were subjected to cholecystoduodenostomy and ligation of the distal end of the common duct, and then given a regular diet (group I) or a diet containing 200 p.p.m. of IS-741 (group II). All hamsters were subcutaneously injected with N-nitrosobis(2-oxopropyl)amine until 10 weeks after surgery, and continued to feed on their respective dietary regimen until termination of the experiment at 16 weeks after surgery. Biliary adenocarcinomas were evaluated histologically. Non-cancerous and cancerous hepatobiliary tract tissues were analyzed for phospholipase A(2) (PLA(2)) activity, myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, and the concentrations of prostaglandin (PG), i.e., prostaglandin E(2), 6-ketoprostaglandin F(1)alpha and thromboxane B(2). IS-741 significantly inhibited the development and multiplicity of hepatobiliary adenocarcinomas and reduced the proliferating cell nuclear antigen labeling indices in non-cancerous hepatobiliary tissues, compared with group I. The anti-cancerous effect of IS-741 was associated with a significant inhibition of PLA(2) and MPO levels in non-cancerous tissues of the extrahepatic biliary tract and the liver, and in cancerous tissue of the liver. Furthermore, IS-741 reduced the production of PGs in non-cancerous hepatobiliary tissues, compared with group I. Although the precise mechanism of action of IS-741 in preventing biliary tumorigenesis remains to be elucidated, it is likely to be related to modulation of arachidonic acid metabolism and/or suppression of neutrophil accumulation.  (+info)

Morphine plus bupivacaine vs. morphine peridural analgesia in abdominal surgery: the effects on postoperative course in major hepatobiliary surgery. (6/338)

Anaesthesia and surgical procedures lead to a reduction of intestinal motility, and opioids may produce a postoperative ileus, that might delay postoperative feeding. The aim of this prospective randomised study is to test whether or not different kinds of epidural analgesia (Group A: morphine 0.0017 mg/kg/h and bupivacaine 0.125%-0.058 mg/kg/h; Group B: morphine alone 0.035 mg/kg/12h in the postoperative period) allow earlier postoperative enteral feeding, enhance intestinal motility a passage of flatus and help avoid complications, such as nausea, vomiting, ileus, diarrhoea, pneumonia or other infective diseases. We included in the study 60 patients (28 males and 32 females) with a mean age of 61.2 years (range 50-70) and with an ASA score of 2 or 3. All patients had hepato-biliary-pancreatic neoplasm and were candidates for major surgery. We compared two different pharmacological approaches, i.e., morphine plus bupivacaine (30 patients, Group A) versus morphine alone (30 patients, Group B). Each medication was administered by means of a thoracic epidural catheter for the control of postoperative pain. In the postoperative course we recorded every 6 hours peristaltic activity. We also noted morbidity (pneumonia, wound sepsis) and mortality. Effective peristalsis was present in all patients in Group A within the first six postoperative hours; in Group B, after 30 hours. Six patients in Group A had bowel motions in the first postoperative day, 11 in the second day, 10 in the third day and 3 in fourth day, while in Group B none in the first day, two in the second, 7 in the third, 15 in the fourth, and 6 in the fifth: the difference between the two groups was significant (p<0.05 in 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th days). Pneumonia occurred in 2 patients of Group A, and in 10 of Group B (p < 0.05). We conclude that epidural analgesia with morphine plus bupivacaine allowed a move rapid return to normal gut activity and early enteral nutrition compared with epidural analgesia with morphine alone.  (+info)

Historical cohort study of 10 109 men in the North American vinyl chloride industry, 1942-72: update of cancer mortality to 31 December 1995. (7/338)

OBJECTIVES: To update and assess mortality from neoplasms to 31 December 1995 among 10 109 men employed in a job exposed to vinyl chloride for at least 1 year between 1942 and 1972 at any of 37 North American factories. Previous analyses indicated associations between employment in vinyl production and increased mortality risk from cancers of the liver and biliary tract, due to increased mortality from angiosarcoma of the liver, and brain cancer. METHODS: Standardised mortality ratio (SMR) analyses, overall and stratified by several work related variables, were conducted with United States and state reference rates. Cox's proportional hazards models and stratified log rank tests were used to further assess occupational factors. RESULTS: 895 of 3191 deaths (28%) were from malignant neoplasms, 505 since the previous update to the end of 1982. Mortality from all causes showed a deficit (SMR 83, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 80 to 86), whereas mortality from all cancers combined was similar to state referent rates. Mortality from cancers of the liver and biliary tract was clearly increased (SMR 359, 95% CI 284 to 446). Modest excesses of brain cancer (SMR 142, 95% CI 100 to 197) and cancer of connective and soft tissue (SMR 270, 95% CI 139 to 472) were found. Stratified SMR and Cox's proportional hazard analyses supported associations with age at first exposure, duration of exposure, and year of first exposure for cancers of the liver and soft tissues, but not the brain. CONCLUSIONS: Excess mortality risk from cancer of the liver and biliary tract, largely due to angiosarcoma, continues. Risk of mortality from brain cancer has attenuated, but its relation with exposure to vinyl chloride remains unclear. A potentially work related excess of deaths from cancer of connective and soft tissue was found for the first time, but was based on few cancers of assorted histology.  (+info)

A necessary and sufficient condition of comparability for using standardized mortality ratio (SMR). (8/338)

A necessary and sufficient condition of comparability for using SMR was studied mathematically by considering the equivalence between SMR and CMF, as CMF was a perfectly comparable index. This condition was expressed by either proportionality of mortality vectors or proportionality of projected person-years to the plane spanned by mortality vectors of reference and index groups. We could obtain another expression of the condition, in which affect of distortions were easily understood, which consist of three factors: distortion of proportionality of mortality, distortion of person-years and similarity of distortions. Our results were applied to study the mortality of biliary tract cancer in Ibaraki Prefecture. Places where absolute difference between CMF and SMR exceeds some criterion (say, 0.15) were Satomi, Ushiboiri, Nihari in males and Gozenyama, Suifu and Asahi in females. All three distortion indices exceeded their upper 95% percentiles in Satomi in males.  (+info)

The purpose of this study is to test an investigational combination of drugs for bile duct or gallbladder cancers.. Gemcitabine and cisplatin are two forms of chemotherapy commonly used in combination to treat bile duct and gallbladder cancers. We are looking to improve treatment results. We will attempt to do so by adding sorafenib (a type of monoclonal antibody) to your treatment plan. Sorafenib acts by attaching to blocking specific targets on cells. These targets may help the cancer cells grow and divide. This study will help answer the question of whether sorafenib is a helpful drug in patients with bile duct or gallbladder cancers when given with gemcitabine and cisplatin.. This study is a phase 2 study. The purpose of a phase 2 study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, sorafenib in combination with gemcitabine and cisplatin has on advanced bile duct and gallbladder cancers. ...
Objectives: The prognosis for patients with unresectable biliary tract cancer is poor and existing chemotherapy is relatively ineffective. Therefore, a need exists for new, effective chemotherapeutic regimens. The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy and safety profile of gemcitabine plus cisplatin in patients with unresectable biliary tract cancer (cholangiocarcinoma) and gall bladder cancer. Methods: From December 2000 to July 2002, 43 patients received gemcitabine 1250mg/m 2 in a 30-min i.v. infusion on d1, 8 and cisplatin 75 mg/m 2 in a 2-h i.v. infusion on d1 (with appropriate hydration), every 3 weeks. Eligibility: Normal hematologic parameters and creatinine levels; serum bilirubin ,5 mg/dl. Results: Forty-three patients enrolled; 40 were assessable (three patients were not assessable due to incomplete treatment; they chose to discontinue chemotherapy after the first cycle). There were 23 males and 17 females, median age 50 years (range 31-69), median Karnofsky PS 80%. Tumor ...
This study evaluates the combination chemotherapy with gemcitabine, irinotecan and panitumumab in patients with advanced biliary cancer.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine hydrochloride and oxaliplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Erlotinib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving gemcitabine hydrochloride and oxaliplatin together with erlotinib hydrochloride may kill more tumor cells.. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of erlotinib hydrochloride when given together with gemcitabine hydrochloride and oxaliplatin in treating patients with advanced biliary tract cancer, pancreatic cancer, duodenal cancer, or ampullary cancer. ...
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), ...
Study Details. The study involved 2,934 adult patients diagnosed with biliary tract cancer between 1990 and 2017 identified from the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink electronic medical record database. Use of postdiagnosis aspirin was defined as one or more prescription at or after biliary tract cancer diagnosis or receipt of an aspirin prescription within 30 days of diagnosis.. Analysis was adjusted for age at diagnosis, sex, comorbidities, statin use at diagnosis, indicators of a healthy lifestyle, and year of diagnosis. Among the 2,934 patients, 667 (23%) had gallbladder cancer, 1,159 (53%) had cholangiocarcinoma, 224 (8%) had ampulla of Vater cancer, and 484 (16%) had overlapping biliary tract cancer lesions.. Results. Death occurred in a total of 2,415 patients (82%), with a reported median overall survival of 5.8 months. In total, 256 patients (9%) were aspirin users at baseline, and an additional 349 (12%) initiated aspirin use after diagnosis; 96% of aspirin users were prescribed a ...
Background: Advanced biliary tract cancer (ABTC) is highly aggressive malignancy, with 5 year overall survival of ,10%. Chemotherapy improves survival and quality of life in patients with ABTC, with gemcitabine/cisplatin the current standard first line treatment. In the second-line setting, evidence is limited to non-randomised phase II trials and retrospective reviews, with best supportive care the current standard of care. As this has been a traditionally difficult patient population to recruit for clinical trials, we undertook a pilot study to assess the feasibility of a phase II trial using capecitabine with nab-paclitaxel in patients with ABTC after failure of gemcitabine/cisplatin.. Methods: Patients with histologically proven, unresectable biliary tract cancer, good performance status (ECOG 0-1), and progression on gemcitabine and a platinum were eligible. This is a single arm, open label, multicentre trial, with all patients receiving capecitabine (825mg/m2 bd PO D1-14 q21d) and ...
Biliary tract cancers (BTC) comprise a group of rare and heterogeneous poor-prognosis tumours with the incidence of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma increasing over recent years. Combination chemotherapy with gemcitabine and cisplatin is the established first-line treatment for advanced BTC with a significant but modest survival advantage over monotherapy. There remains no accepted standard treatment in the second-line setting, although recent results from a randomised study have shown a survival benefit with 5-fluorouracil and oxaliplatin chemotherapy. Historically, clinical trials investigating targeted therapies in unselected BTC have failed to demonstrate significant clinical benefit. More recently, advancement in molecular exploration of BTC has shed light on the complex biological heterogeneity within these tumours and has also identified actionable genomic aberrations, such as fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) gene fusions, isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) and BRAF mutations, which ...

Combinations of gemcitabine and platinum chemotherapy (gemcitabine and platinum-based therapy [GP]) form the standard approach for treating advanced BTC. To characterize the spectrum of mutations and to identify potential biomarkers for a GP response in BTC, this study evaluated the genomic landscape and assessed whether mutations affecting DNA repair were associated with GP resistance. METHODS: Pretreatment, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded samples from 183 BTC patients treated with GP were analyzed. ...
(HealthDay) -- For patients with biliary tract cancers, postresection adjuvant therapy with chemotherapy or chemoradiotherapy appears to be beneficial in treating patients with biliary tract cancers, with significant improvement ...
Gallbladder carcinoma and carcinoma of the bile ducts are relativelyrare cancers in the United States. These cancers are often diagnosedin an advanced stage due to their nonspecific symptomatologyand until recently have been associated with a dismal prognosis. Recentadvances in imaging and surgical techniques along with emergingoptions in palliative chemotherapy have improved the outlook inthese cancers. While complete surgical resection remains the only hopeof cure in both these cancers, palliative biliary decompression and chemotherapyresult in substantial improvement in quality of life. Part 1 ofthis review, which appeared in last months issue, provided a relevantand comprehensive update of molecular pathology, imaging modalities,and surgical care. In part 2, we examine palliative care and systemictherapy in gallbladder and biliary tract carcinomas, as well asthe use of liver transplantation in the treatment of cholangiocarcinomas.These strategies are of relevance to internists as well as

Background Biliary tract cancers (BTCs) are relatively rare neoplasms encompass both cholangiocarcinoma (CC). The role of routine lymphadenectomy at the time of surgical resection remains poorly defined. We sought to identify factors associated with outcome following and examine the impact of lymph node (LN) assessment on survival.. Methods 43 patients who underwent curative intent surgery between 2000-2010 were identified from a database. We calculated prognostic factors and impact lymph node (LN) assessment for survival.. Results A total of 43 patients were identified with no metastatic BTCs. The median age was 65 years (29-82 years); performance status of 0 in 33/43 (76%); PS1 in 8/43 (19%) and PS2 in 2/43 (5%) pts. A histological diagnosis of adenocarcinoma was confirmed in 100%. Surgical resection was performed in all patients. After resection 42% (18/43) had positive nodes.Adjuvant chemotherapy had 31/43(72%), preferred with gemcitabine and a median number of cycles 6. Grade 3 or 4 ...
UNLABELLED: Obesity and associated metabolic disorders have been implicated in liver carcinogenesis; however, there are little data on the role of obesity-related biomarkers on liver cancer risk. We studied prospectively the association of inflammatory and metabolic biomarkers with risks of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), intrahepatic bile duct (IBD), and gallbladder and biliary tract cancers outside of the liver (GBTC) in a nested case-control study within the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition. Over an average of 7.7 years, 296 participants developed HCC (n=125), GBTC (n=137), or IBD (n=34). Using risk-set sampling, controls were selected in a 2:1 ratio and matched for recruitment center, age, sex, fasting status, and time of blood collection. Baseline serum concentrations of C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), C-peptide, total high-molecular-weight (HMW) adiponectin, leptin, fetuin-a, and glutamatdehydrogenase (GLDH) were measured, and incidence rate ratios (IRRs

The molecular pathogenesis of biliary tract cancers is poorly understood. By performing immunohistochemical analysis of more than 125 surgically resected cases of biliary tract carcinoma, we have previously shown altered cell cycle regulatory protein expression in biliary tact cancers [13]. Our current findings also show mutated expression of a large number of cell cycle regulators including UBD, BCL2L2, CDC2, MCM2, and CDKN1C in all subtypes. Similarly, Kang et al. [15] found that expression of G1-S modulators were commonly mutated in 42 cases of IHC. Total loss of p16, p27, and Rb were detected at rates of in 36%, 31%, 12%, respectively, in cancer specimens. Furthermore, in the above study, even in 7 of 13 cases of biliary dysplasia, without frank carcinoma, abnormal expression of p53, cyclin D1 or p16 was detected. Kim et al. [16] reported that the mutation of the p53, p16, and K-ras genes occurred at rates of 36%, 31% and 20%, respectively, in GBC. A further finding of the above study was ...

Cancers of the biliary tract include cholangiocarcinoma (cancers arising from the bile duct epithelium), ampulla of Vater cancer, and gallbladder cancer. All subtypes of biliary tract cancers are rare and have an overall poor prognosis.
The biliary tract refers to the path by which bile is secreted by the liver then transported to the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. A structure common to most members of the mammal family, the biliary tract is often referred to as a tree because it begins with many small branches which end in the common bile duct, sometimes referred to as the trunk of the biliary tree. The duct, the branches of the hepatic artery, and the portal vein form the central axis of the portal triad. Bile flows in the direction opposite to that of the blood present in the other two channels. The system is usually referred to as the biliary tract or system, [2]and can include the use of the term hepatobiliary when used to refer just to the liver and bile ducts.[3] The name biliary tract is used to refer to all of the ducts, structures and organs involved in the production, storage and secretion of bile.[4] The tract is as follows: ...

The biliary tract, (biliary tree or biliary system) refers to the liver, gall bladder and bile ducts, and how they work together to make, store and secrete bile. Bile consists of water, electrolytes, bile acids, cholesterol, phospholipids and conjugated bilirubin. Some components are synthesised by hepatocytes (liver cells), the rest are extracted from the blood by the liver. Bile is secreted by the liver into small ducts that join to form the common hepatic duct. Between meals, secreted bile is stored in the gall bladder. During a meal, the bile is secreted into the duodenum to rid the body of waste stored in the bile as well as aid in the absorption of dietary fats and oils. The biliary tract refers to the path by which bile is secreted by the liver then transported to the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. A structure common to most members of the mammal family, the biliary tract is often referred to as a tree because it begins with many small branches which end in the common ...
Damage of the biliary tract at the end of a period of hepatic preservation prior to liver transplantation has been observed in man. This damage may be important in the development of early biliary complications. A model of hepatic biliary ischaemia in the pig has been developed which permits comparison between the influences of warm and cold ischaemic damage on the biliary tract. The major damage to the biliary tract in the pig in this model appears to occur after prolonged cold preservation.

Findings Show Anti-Tumor Activity for KEYTRUDA in Two Gastrointestinal Cancers. 27/09/2015 - KENILWORTH, N.J. - (BUSINESS WIRE). MSD, known as Merck (NYSE:MRK) in the United States and Canada, today announced new findings from the KEYNOTE-028 Phase 1b study, the clinical trial investigating the use of the companys anti-PD-1 therapy, KEYTRUDA® (pembrolizumab) in multiple, difficult-to-treat cancers. Data from this trial, to be presented at the European Cancer Congress (ECC) in Vienna, Austria, Sept. 25-29, include the first-time findings for KEYTRUDA in two gastrointestinal cancers, advanced anal cancer and advanced biliary tract cancer, and add to MSDs growing body of clinical data for KEYTRUDA.. KEYNOTE-028 is an ongoing multi-cohort, non-randomized Phase 1b basket trial - a trial design that allows for the study of multiple sub-populations of different tumor or histological types within one study. The study is evaluating the safety, tolerability, and anti-tumor activity of KEYTRUDA ...
After integrating MPV and PDW/PCT into the multivariable Cox model, we developed a new prognostic model and a novel staging system. The OS of patients belonging to different stages were significantly different, either limited to specific types of BTC or the entire BTC cohort. Meanwhile, the AJCC 7th TNM staging system presented modest prognostic power in patients with ECC (Fig. 3H), and has been shown to have poor prognostic performance in several subsets of patients with BTC [25]. The C-index of our novel prognostic model was 0.703 in the training cohort and 0.728 in the validation cohort. Compared to the AJCC TNM stage, with a C-index of 0.561 and 0.618, our prognostic model has superior discrimination to the AJCC TNM stage. DCA also implied increased clinical benefits with the utility of our new staging system. Based on these results, we can conclude that our new prognostic model outperformed the AJCC TNM staging system in many aspects. An obvious advantage of our new prognostic model is the ...
Based on a review of patients recruited to-date and discussions with key investigators, it was agreed that a protocol amendment should be submitted to local authorities to modify enrolment criteria and to ensure the study will provide an accurate evaluation of varlitinibs efficacy. Review and implementation of the voluntary amendment is expected to take approximately 4 months. In the interim, ASLAN will continue to recruit patients into the study and provide a further update on study timelines in early 2019.. ASLANs global pivotal study in second line BTC, TREETOPP, remains on track to complete patient enrolment in early 2019. TREETOPP is a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial in second line BTC comparing varlitinib and capecitabine to placebo and capecitabine. If positive, data from the TREETOPP study will be used in regulatory approval submissions for varlitinib globally.. Patients enrolled into the second line study in China appear to have performed significantly ...
Hendrik-Tobias Arkenau, MD, PhD of the Sarah Cannon Research Institute, Nashvile, TN, talks about one of the highlights from the gastrointestinal cancer session the ASCO 2017 meeting. The study, called the BILCAP study (ISRCTN72785446), looked at the whether patients with gallbladder colloidal carcinoma need to receive adjuvant chemotherapy or just supportive care, after their tumor is resected. This large phase III randomized study compared supportive care against capecitabine. This was the first large study to show that adjuvant chemotherapy leads to a better overall survival, with capecitabine resulting in a 15 months better overall survival compared to supportive care. Recorded at the American Society of Oncology (ASCO) 2017 Annual Meeting held in Chicago, IL
This phase III trial studies how well gemcitabine hydrochloride and cisplatin given with or without nab-paclitaxel work in treating patients with newly diagnosed biliary tract cancers that have spread to other places in the body. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine hydrochloride, cisplatin, and nab-paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not known if giving gemcitabine hydrochloride and cisplatin with or without nab-paclitaxel may work better at treating biliary tract cancers ...

Spontaneous perforations of the biliary tract are rare in adults and even more so during pregnancy. Perforation of the gall bladder is a potentially fatal complication of cholecystitis. The infrequency of perforation in the setting of calculous disease of the gall bladder is probably due to the thickened wall of the organ that has long been the seat of chronic inflammation. Common bile duct perforations have been reported in adults most commonly in association with choledocholithiasis. The diagnosis of biliary tract perforations is often delayed due to their non specific symptoms, which results in high morbidity. Early diagnosis and aggressive therapy are mandatory to alleviate this condition. Delayed diagnoses and treatment may have more serious consequences for pregnant women than for other patients. Very few cases of biliary tract perforations have been reported in pregnant women. We report two such cases in pregnancy: first of a gall bladder perforation associated with cholelithiasis and the second

Circulating standard AA, biogenic amines and hexoses were measured (Biocrates AbsoluteIDQ-p180Kit) in a case-control study nested within a large prospective cohort (147 HCC, 43 IHBC and 134 GBTC cases). Liver function and hepatitis status biomarkers were determined separately. Multivariable conditional logistic regression was used to calculate odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals (OR; 95%CI) for log-transformed standardised (mean=0, SD=1) serum metabolite levels and relevant ratios in relation to HCC, IHBC or GBTC risk. Fourteen metabolites were significantly associated with HCC risk, of which seven metabolites and four ratios ...
Dublin, Ireland: Patients with rare, but incurable cancers of the digestive tract have responded well to a combination of two drugs that block the MEK and BRAF pathways, which drive the disease in some cases. They have survived for longer without the disease progressing than the usual average time of less than five months, even though their cancer was advanced and had not responded to previous therapies.. In a late-breaking presentation to the 30th EORTC-NCI-AACR [1] Symposium on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics in Dublin, Ireland, Dr Zev Wainberg reported on results from a phase II international clinical trial of dabrafenib plus trametinib in 36 patients with biliary tract cancer (BTC) and adenocarcinoma of the small intestine (ASI). These patients had one of the most common mutations in the BRAF gene -BRAF V600E - which is implicated in a number of cancers and in about 15% of BTC and ASI cancers.. He reported that cancers in 13 out of 32 patients (41%) with BTC and two out of the ...
Cholangiocyte cytokines stimulate inducible nitric oxide synthase (NOS2) to produce nitric oxide (NO), a known DNA mutagen linked to malignant transformation (5, 13). The generation of NO is also important for bile duct development because it induces Notch1 expression (14, 15). The four Notch genes identified in mammals (Notch 1-4) are expressed in a wide variety of cells and play a significant role in cellular differentiation. The activation of Notch by cell-to-cell interaction causes a transcriptional silencing effect that inhibits differentiation in some cells but not in others (16-18). While the Notch pathway is known to be associated with pancreatic carcinogenesis in rats and humans (19), this same pathway may also have a role in cholangiocarcinogenesis via NOS2.. Cyclooxygenase-2 (prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 2, PTGS2) is also implicated in the initiation of malignant cholangiocytes (20). PTGS2 is up-regulated in murine and rat models of biliary adenocarcinoma, while the antisense ...
ABSTRACT: Asymptomatic microscopic hematuria is an important clinical sign of urinary tract malignancy. Asymptomatic microscopic hematuria has been variably defined over the years. In addition, the evidence primarily is based on data from male patients. However, whether the patient is a man or a woman influences the differential diagnosis of asymptomatic microscopic hematuria, and the risk of urinary tract malignancy (bladder, ureter, and kidney) is significantly less in women than in men. Among women, being older than 60 years, having a history of smoking, and having gross hematuria are the ... ...

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 ...
Alcoholic drinks are well known to have carcinogenic properties, and several possible mechanisms have been postulated to explain this. In general terms ethyl alcohol slows down protein synthesis. One obvious consequence of this is that cell repair mechanisms will be inhibited, which could lead to malignant changes. A synergy between alcohol and smoking is also well documented: heavy smokers who also drink heavily are many times more likely to develop oesophageal cancer than non-smokers who drink. In this case the harmful cellular effects of the chemicals and free radicals that are present in cigarette smoke are potentiated if the cells have already been damaged by chronic exposure to alcohol. But perhaps a more interesting question is why beer and spirits are strongly associated with upper digestive tract malignancies, whereas wine is apparently not. One hypothesis involves the action of nitrosamines. These are substances that are found in most alcoholic drinks and which become carcinogenic when ...
Computed tomography (CT or CAT scan) is a noninvasive diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of X-rays and computer technology to produce cross-sectional images (often called slices), both horizontally and vertically, of the body. A CT scan shows detailed images of any part of the body, including the bones, muscles, fat, and organs. CT scans are more detailed than standard X-rays.. In standard X-rays, a beam of energy is aimed at the body part being studied. A plate behind the body part captures the variations of the energy beam after it passes through skin, bone, muscle, and other tissue. While much information can be obtained from a standard X-ray, a lot of detail about internal organs and other structures is not available.. In computed tomography, the X-ray beam moves in a circle around the body. This allows many different views of the same organ or structure. The X-ray information is sent to a computer that interprets the X-ray data and displays it in a two-dimensional (2D) ...
