Latest Pancreas Stories
Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is a highly sensitive diagnostic method for the detection of small pancreatic carcinomas.
GORDONSVILLE, Va., Nov.
MIT cancer biologists have identified a subpopulation of cells that can give rise to pancreatic cancer.
WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Repligen Corporation (Nasdaq: RGEN) reported today that it has completed patient treatment in its Phase 3 clinical trial of RG1068, synthetic human secretin, in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the pancreas.
BETHLEHEM, Pa., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Digestive Care, Inc. (DCI) announced today that the company has received a complete response letter from the U.S.
A tissue-repair-and-regeneration pathway in the human body, including wound healing, is essential for the early lung to develop properly. Genetically engineered mice fail to develop lungs when two molecules in this pathway, Wnt2 and Wnt2b, are knocked out.
Researchers have found a way in mice to convert another type of pancreas cell into the critical insulin-producing beta cells that are lost in those with type I diabetes. The secret ingredient is a single transcription factor, according to the report in the August 7th issue of Cell, a Cell Press journal.
Scientists identified a master regulator gene for embryonic development of the pancreas, putting researchers closer to a possible cure for type1 diabetes.
Scientists have identified a master regulator gene for early embryonic development of the pancreas and other organs, putting researchers closer to coaxing stem cells into pancreatic cells as a possible cure for type1 diabetes.
For years researchers have been searching for a way to treat diabetics by reactivating their insulin-producing beta cells, to no avail. Now, they may be one step closer.
The pancreas is a digestive and an endocrine organ with both endocrine and exocrine functions. It is about six inches long located in the upper portion of the abdominal cavity. The head of the pancreas lies within the indentation of the duodenum and is connected to it by the pancreatic duct. The uncinate process extends from the head and the neck connects to the body of the pancreas, which lies directly behind the stomach. The tail of the pancreas extends to the left side of the body and is...
