Ocimum Sanctum Leaves for Pancreatic Cancer Treatment?

In a study involving alternative therapy, researchers including SK Batra and colleagues from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center studied the effects on pancreatic cancer cells (ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas) of ocimum sanctum, a traditional medicine from India known more commonly as “Holy Basil,” that has been […]

Spectrometry Model as a Diagnostic Marker for Pancreatic Cancer

Japanese researchers including Yoshida and colleagues from the Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine used a specific lab method (gas chromatography mass spectrometry) on certain serum metabolite levels in patients with known pancreatitis, diagnosed pancreatic cancer (ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas), and healthy subject volunteers. The results of this study were published this month in […]

MicroRNAs as markers for IPMNs (early pancreatic cancer?)

Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) are not fully understood, but are felt by many to be precursor tumors to full blown pancreatic cancer (ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas). Thus, an interesting study was recently published by Italian researchers including Giovannetti and colleagues from the University of Pisa in the Annals of Oncology (the official journal of the […]
