MiRNAs Acting in Concert Impede PDCD4 and Related Genes in Pancreatic Cancer

Writing a pancreatic cancer blog is interesting. Research questions seem limited only by the level of imagination of researchers. We have addressed in our Pancreatica Blog a small body of research related to MicroRNA (MiRNA) work primarily related to seeking patterns that may aid in the eventual earlier diagnosis or even screening for pancreatic cancer: […]

DNA Found in Exosomes in Cancer of the Pancreas – with Characteristic Mutations !

We recently commented (here) on the interesting properties of exosomes that were explored as possible messengers within the body including saliva in the context specifically of biomarkers in pancreatic cancer by Wong and dental colleagues at UCLA. Exosomes are tiny bubble type structures found in most biological fluids that contain proteins and other substances including […]

MiRNA Panels for the Diagnosis of Cancer of the Pancreas ?

A majority of cases of pancreatic cancer are diagnosed in advanced stage. The main reason is that early stage disease tends to have no symptoms, or vague symptoms.  And there is no good screening test for early pancreatic cancer, or a simple diagnostic indicator.  The two biomarkers most often used with pancreatic cancer are CA19-9 […]
