Improving resectability and survival in patients with primary duodenal carcinoma

American Journal of Surgery
R DelcoreA S Hermreck


Of 35 patients with primary duodenal carcinoma (PDC), 13 were treated between 1960 and 1974 (group I) and 22 between 1975 and 1990 (group II). PDCs were found in the first 5 portions of the duodenum (14%), second 18 (51%), third 8 (23%), and fourth 4 (12%). Five patients (38%) in group I were deemed to have unresectable disease compared with only one patient (5%) in group II. Eight patients (62%) in group I underwent resection by either pancreatoduodenectomy (4) or segmental resection (4), and 20 patients (95%) in group II had pancreatoduodenectomy (17) or segmental resection (3). Operative mortality was 31% in group I and 0% in group II. Mean survival was 7 months (range: 0 to 22 months) in group I and 48 months (range: 6 to 218 months) in group II. None of the patients in group I survived for 2 years, whereas the 5-year survival for patients in group II was 62%. This experience suggests that resectability, operative mortality, and survival in patients with PDCs have improved markedly in recent years.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
