Saliva, Exosomes and MicroRNA for Pancreatic Cancer Detection – what’s not to like !

Dental research for pancreatic cancer has seemed to fall largely into two categories: specific bacterial overgrowth that may be associated in some manner with increased ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas (pancreatic cancer), and that related to exosomes, the free-floating “bubbles” found in saliva that we now know contains genetic materials (DNA and RNA) including mutations […]

Elements of Protein Breakdown Found in Serum Long Before Pancreatic Cancer Diagnosis

In two separate studies, Boston researchers (primarily) have discovered and begun to characterize the intriguing and likely important finding that protein metabolites found in human serum are elevated typically years before the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer (adenocarcinoma) is established. The implications of this discovery have cast a new light on the early development of pancreatic […]

Inexpensive Urine Protein Array for the Early Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

At one point several years back, we at Pancreatica looked at the number of studies in pancreatic cancer that dealt with early detection versus those aimed at treatment. We found that less than 3% were aimed at the detection of pancreatic cancer. This rate has since increased, but when interesting studies related to the early […]
