  • Stroma-regulated HMGA2 is an independent prognostic marker in PDAC and AAC. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: This study identifies HMGA2 expression in tumour cells as an independent prognostic marker in PDAC and AAC. Correlative data analysis gives novel tissue-based evidence for a heterotypic cross-talk with stroma cells as a possible mechanism for HMGA2 induction, which is further supported by experimental models.
  • Reporting the margin in pancreaticoduodenectomies: R0 versus R1. [Journal Article]
  • IJIndian J Gastroenterol 2017; 36(2):81-87

  • CONCLUSIONS: Tumors originating from the pancreatic head, ampulla, terminal CBD, and duodenum showed a consistent increase in their R1 incidence, post-protocol. Ampullary tumors showed the greatest upward change in R1 positivity. The highest incidence of margin positivity was seen in pancreatic head adenocarcinomas (80%), then distal CBD tumors (60%), and finally the ampullary tumors (39%). In pancreatic head adenocarcinomas, R1 increased from 55% to 80%, distal CBD from 50% to 60%, and ampullary from 17% to 39%. Duodenal adenocarcinomas had no R1 in both pre- and post-protocol groups. The tumors also had different patterns of margin involvement. Ampullary tumors involved only the posterior margin, pancreatic adenocarcinomas involved the superior mesenteric vein (SMV) groove more often than the posterior margin, and distal CBD tumors involved the posterior margin and SMV groove equally. The size of the tumor made a significant difference in pancreatic head carcinomas with tumor size less than or equal to 2 cm, showing an R1 incidence of 38%, while those above 2 cm had an R1 incidence of 68%.
