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 (ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas) 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 […]

Cell Surface Heparan Sulfate Proteoglycan for the Earlier Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

Yesterday, European researchers and those from MD Anderson Cancer Center/ University of Texas in Houston published an article in the prestigious journal, Nature, which carries the possibility of being a game-changer in the earlier diagnosis and consequent treatment of pancreatic cancer (ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas). It is difficult to overstate the potential for significant […]

Glycoprotein Biomarkers for Malignancy in Pancreatic Cysts

We speak of pancreatic cancer as if it is one thing, but there are many kinds of pancreatic cancer; one classification had this number at 17.  A frequent anatomic / physiologic action of the pancreas is that it tends to produce cysts (and sometimes even “pseudocysts” – pockets of fluid often seen as a result […]
