  • Stellate Cells And Pancreatic Cancer

    the relationship pancreatic cancer- PSC can be described by a pathological feedback loop that is not completely understood. Cancer cells stimulate stellate cells to secrete more vascular endothelial growth factor, but stellate cells contribute to the hypoxia of fibrotic tissue by increasing the endostatin production [11]. Although, several studies confirm that stellate cells contribute to tumor growth and metastasis, it is poorly understood the mechanism by with they do it. There is no evidence that the elimination of PSC mitigates the progression of cancer, yet the modulation of these ones might influence it [12]. Overall, it is uncertainty if SC are really partners in crime or some sort of double agent that also regulates spread of oncogene-initiated epithelium. My goal is to use a mechanistic approach to explore the apparatus of action of pancreatic stellate cells and the influence of its activation in their microenvironment and cancer cells. Consequently, this knowledge can provide a practical way to find novel therapeutic targets and improve patient’s quality of…

  • Two Types Of Pancreatic Cancer

    types of Pancreatic Cancer. One type is called exocrine pancreatic cancer. With this one there is a thing called adenocarcinomas.

Ampullary cancer is not technically a pancreatic cancer but…

  • Pancreatic Cancer In Unicellular Organisms

    In Unicellular organisms, the single cell constituting the organism functions independently and carries out all the functions needed for the survival of such organisms. However, for multicellular organisms, the cells are often independent and carry out specific functions and work together in order to sustain the needs for the organism to survive (Calabresi, 2008). Cancer and EDC exposure can cause many health issues for both the male and female population, as in developmental issues, to cancers…

  • Pancreatic Cancer: A Case Study

    When a person has pancreatic cancer, their alkaline phosphate, glucose, and bilirubin levels may be elevated. For a definite diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, a pancreatic biopsy is necessary. If the cancer causes a secondary pancreatitis, the patient’s lipase and amylase levels are also elevated. They may look at a patient’s blood clotting time because thrombophlebitis is a possible symptom.
