Background. Serine and glycine play an important role in the folate-dependent one-carbon metabolism. The metabolism of serine and glycine has been shown to be associated with cancer cell proliferation. No prior epidemiologic study has investigated the associations for serum levels of serine, glycine and their related-metabolites with pancreatic cancer risk. null Methods. Two parallel nested case-control studies derived from the Shanghai Cohort Study (with 129 cases and 258 controls) and from the...

Background. Dietary quality index represents a long-term dietary intake of nutritive and non-nutritive compounds. Therefore, it would be more informative for evaluating the association between dietary intake and health outcomes, including pancreatic cancer, in different populations with distinct dietary habits and patterns. Limited research has been conducted on the effect of dietary quality index (DQI) on pancreatic cancer risk in Asian populations. null Methods. Using data from Singapore Chine...

Background and study aims Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided tissue sampling is the standard of care for diagnosing solid pancreatic lesions. While many two-way comparisons between needle types have been made in randomized controlled trials (RCTs), it is unclear which size and type of needle offers the best probability of diagnosis. We therefore performed a network meta-analysis (NMA) to compare different sized and shaped needles to rank the diagnostic performance of each needle. Methods We sear...

INTRODUCTION Existing laboratory markers and clinical scoring systems have shown suboptimal accuracies for early prediction of persistent organ failure (POF) in acute pancreatitis (AP). We used information theory and machine learning to select the best-performing panel of circulating cytokines for predicting POF early in the disease course and performed verification of the cytokine panel's prognostic accuracy in an independent AP cohort. METHODS The derivation cohort included 60 subjects with AP...

BACKGROUND Persistent organ failure (POF) is the strongest determinant of mortality in acute pancreatitis (AP). There is a paucity of data regarding the impact of different POF attributes on mortality and the role of different characteristics of systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) in the risk of developing POF. OBJECTIVE We aimed to assess the association of POF dynamic features with mortality and SIRS characteristics with POF. METHODS We studied 1544 AP subjects prospectively enrolle...

BACKGROUND AND AIM The primary aim was to validate the Pancreatitis Activity Scoring System (PASS) in a multicenter prospectively ascertained acute pancreatitis (AP) cohort. Second, we investigated the association of early PASS trajectories with disease severity and length of hospital stay (LOS). METHODS Data were prospectively collected through the APPRENTICE consortium (2015-2018). AP severity was categorized based on revised Atlanta classification. Delta PASS (ΔPASS) was calculated by subtrac...
