The research roundup provides an overview of the past week’s research from Mayo Clinic Laboratories consultants, including featured abstracts and a complete list of published studies and reviews.
Precursors of pancreatic cancer arise in the ductal epithelium; markers exfoliated into pancreatic juice might be used to detect high-grade dysplasia (HGD) and cancer. Specific methylated DNA sequences in pancreatic tissue have been associated with adenocarcinoma. We analyzed these methylated DNA markers (MDMs) in pancreatic juice samples from patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas (PDACs) or intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) with HGD (cases), and assessed their ability to discriminate these patients from individuals without dysplasia or with IPMNs with low-grade dysplasia (IPMN-LGD) (controls).
