Measuring MicroRNAs to Detect Pancreatic Cancer

Analysis of microRNAs improves cytologic analysis of pancreatic fine-needle aspirates, allowing for more accurate identification of patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), researchers report in the October issue of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology. This improvement could reduce the number of diagnostic procedures required for patients with pancreatic masses. Endoscopic ultrasound–guided fine-needle

A New Way to Detect Pancreatic Tumors?

Researchers have developed an ultrasound technique to image pancreatic tumors in mice, described in the October issue of Gastroenterology. This approach might useful in early detection of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). PDAC is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States. It is usually diagnosed at an
