  1. Matsushita D, Kurahara H, Mataki Y, Maemura K, Higashi M, Iino S, et al. Pancreatic hamartoma: a case report and literature review. BMC Gastroenterol. 2016;16:3 pubmed publisher
    ..Beside on the above findings, we suggest that the term "well-demarcated solid and cystic lesion with chronological morphological changes" could be a clinical keyword to describe pancreatic hamartomas. ..
  2. Yonezawa S, Nakamura A, Horinouchi M, Sato E. The expression of several types of mucin is related to the biological behavior of pancreatic neoplasms. J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Surg. 2002;9:328-41 pubmed
    ..Our study of the mucin expression pattern in IDC and IPMN shows that this pattern may be related to the biological behavior of pancreatic tumors and their malignant potential. ..
  3. Yoshino Yasuda I, Kobayashi K, Akiyama M, Itoh H, Tomomura A, Saheki T. Caldecrin is a novel-type serine protease expressed in pancreas, but its homologue, elastase IV, is an artifact during cloning derived from caldecrin gene. J Biochem. 1998;123:546-54 pubmed
    ..Although both caldecrins were found to be chymotrypsin-type proteases, on the basis of their substrate and inhibitor specificities, they were not inhibited by TPCK, suggesting that caldecrin is a novel type of serine protease. ..
  4. Saitou M, Goto M, Horinouchi M, Tamada S, Nagata K, Hamada T, et al. MUC4 expression is a novel prognostic factor in patients with invasive ductal carcinoma of the pancreas. J Clin Pathol. 2005;58:845-52 pubmed
    ..ErbB2, p27, and MUC1 were not independent risk factors. This study shows that MUC4 expression in IDC is a new independent factor for poor prognosis and predicts the outcome of patients with IDC. ..
  5. Matsuda A, Higashi M, Nakagawa T, Yokoyama S, Kuno A, Yonezawa S, et al. Assessment of tumor characteristics based on glycoform analysis of membrane-tethered MUC1. Lab Invest. 2017;97:1103-1113 pubmed publisher
    ..Our approach provides the information to investigate novel glycodynamics in biology, for example, glycoalteration, as well as diseases related to not only MUC1 but also other membrane proteins. ..
  6. Kurahara H, Takao S, Kuwahata T, Nagai T, Ding Q, Maeda K, et al. Clinical significance of folate receptor ?-expressing tumor-associated macrophages in pancreatic cancer. Ann Surg Oncol. 2012;19:2264-71 pubmed publisher
    ..FR?+ macrophages may be promising a targeting therapy for pancreatic cancer. ..
