Surgery, Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER), Puducherry, IND.

Central pancreatectomy (CP) is a well-described procedure done for neck and proximal body tumors of the pancreas. It can be done for benign lesions where an adequate length of normal distal pancreas will be left leading to organ preservation. The currently described benefit of the procedure is decreased long-term morbidity due to retention of both the spleen and the preservation of functioning pancreas. Read More

Utilization of spectrins βI and βIII in diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma.

Ann Diagn Pathol 2019 Feb 15;39:86-91. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of Pathology, Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY 10467, United States of America. Electronic address:

Spectrins are a group of cytoskeletal proteins which participate in many important cellular functions. It has been suggested that loss of spectrin isoforms may be associated with tumorigenesis of lymphoma, leukemia, gastric cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We recently reported that βI spectrin expression was present in normal hepatocytes but lost in HCC cells, which suggested that spectrins may be helpful markers in diagnosis of HCC. Read More

Loss of PTEN and Increased pAKT Expression Distinguishes Aggressive Low-grade Neuroendocrine Tumors.

Ann Clin Lab Sci 2018 Sep;48(5):565-572

Department of Pathology, SUNY Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY, USA

A major problem in neuroendocrine pathology is the identification and separation of aggressive low-grade neuroendocrine tumors (LGNETs) from those with a benign or more indolent behavior. Presently there are no known morphologic or molecular parameters which can predict how localized LGNETs will behave. The phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) gene negatively regulates the PI3K-AKT-mTOR pathway and inhibits neoplastic cell survival and proliferation and has recently been identified as a neuroendocrine tumor differentiation marker.

Safety and efficacy of a minimally invasive cell sampling device ('Cytosponge') in the diagnosis of esophageal pathology: a systematic review.

Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol 2018 11;30(11):1261-1269

Department of Medicine.

Esophageal adenocarcinoma is an increasingly common cause of morbidity and mortality in developed countries. Most cases are considered the consequence of chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease, with subsequent Barrett's metaplasia and dysplasia. Because progression from Barrett's metaplasia to cancer occurs over many years, endoscopic screening and surveillance programs have been established, albeit with little or no consideration for cost-effectiveness.
