Improving survival in adenocarcinoma of the duodenum

American Journal of Surgery
D R JoestingL H Weiland


The records of 104 patients with primary adenocarcinoma of the duodenum were reviewed. All patients were followed up to the date of this report, 91 for at least 5 years. Melena was an ominous preoperative finding. Survival was directly related to nodal status, the grade of the lesion, and the ability of the surgeon to minimize or eliminate operative mortality. Fifty percent of the lesions were resectable for cure, and the 5 year survival rate for patients with resectable lesions was 46 percent. All eight patients treated with segmental resections for lesions in the third and fourth portions of the duodenum survived at least 5 years. These data are a great improvement over those in previous reports and suggest that this disease may be much more treatable than previously believed.

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.

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.
