ABSTRACT: Manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) expression has been found to be low in human pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). Previously, we have reported that microRNA-301a (miR-301a) was found being upregulated via nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) feedback loop in human PDAC. In this study, we investigate whether the miR-301a expression level is associated with MnSOD expression in human PDAC. We established a xenograft PDAC mouse model using transfected PanC-1 cells (miR-301a antisense or scrambled control) to investigate tumor growth and the interaction between MnSOD and miR-301a. The animal study indicated that miR-301a antisense transfection could significantly decrease the growth rate of inoculated PDAC cells, and this decrease in tumor growth rate is associated with increased MnSOD expression. To evaluate the MnSOD-miR-301a correlation in human PDAC, we have analyzed a total of 60 PDAC specimens, along with 20 normal pancreatic tissue (NPT) specimens. Human specimens confirmed a significant decrease of MnSOD expression in PDAC specimens (0.88±0.38) compared with NPT control (2.45±0.76; P<0.05), whereas there was a significant increase in miR-301a levels in PDAC specimens (0.89±0.28) compared with NPT control (0.25±0.41; P<0.05). We conclude that MnSOD expression is negatively associated with miR-301a levels in PDAC tissues, and lower miR-301a levels are associated with increased MnSOD expression and inhibition of PDAC growth.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE: To study the correlation between characteristics of lymph node metastases and prognosis in pancreatic cancer treated with pancreaticoduodenectomy. METHODS: The clinicopathological data of consecutive series of 122 patients who underwent resection for adenocarcinoma of the pancreas with lymphadenectomy in our hospital were reviewed in this study. The number of metastatic lymph nodes, lymph node metastasis ratio, lymph node levels, and other clinocopathological factors were analyzed by Kaplan-Meier method and Cox proportional hazard model, and their correlation with prognosis was also analyzed. RESULTS: 122 patients met the inclusion criteria and entered the study. There were 90 patients (73.8%) with lymph node metastases. Median (range) metastatic lymph node number was 7 (1-28) for the entire cohort, and median (range) metastatic lymph node ratio was 21.1% (3.6%-62.2%). The numbers of patients with lymph nodes metastases to levels 1, 2, 3 were 39 (43.3%), 40 (44.4%), and 11 (12.2%), respectively. Univariate analysis suggested that the maximum diameter of tumor, lymph node metastases, number, ratio, level, distant metastases and adjuvant chemotherapy were significantly related to survival in the entire cohort (P < 0.05). The maximum diameter of tumor, lymph node metastasis number, ratio, level, and adjuvant chemotherapy were significantly related to the survival in node-positive patients (P < 0.05). Multivariate analysis suggested that the diameter of tumor >2 cm, lymph node metastases, metastatic lymph node number >2, ratio >20%, level >1, and without adjuvant chemotherapy were independent risk factors of survival in the entire cohort (P < 0.05). The maximum diameter of tumor >2 cm, metastatic lymph node number >2, ratio >20%, level >1 and without adjuvant chemotherapy were independent risk factors of survival in node-positive patients (P < 0.05 for all). CONCLUSIONS: The three indexes, metastatic number, ratio and extent of lymph nodal involvement are statistically significant prognostic factors in pancreatic cancer, which can complement the existing lymph node metastasis staging. The standardized pancreaticoduodenectomy combined with proper lymphodenectomy provides an important basis for a correct prognostic evaluation.
