ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVES: We conducted a study in order to assess the prevalence of extrapancreatic malignancies (EPMs) in a cohort of patients with intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) from northeastern Italy. METHODS: A study was conducted in hospital Santa Maria della Misericordia, Udine, Italy. Hospital records were screened in order to identify newly diagnosed IPMN cases in the period from January 1, 2009, to December 31, 2015. We searched for EPMs diagnosed previous to, synchronous to, or after the IPMN. The ratio of the observed (O) number of patients with EPMs to the expected (E) was calculated. RESULTS: We identified 72 EPMs in 63 (31.8%) of 198 patients included. Among them, 51 (70.8%) were diagnosed previous to, 17 (23.6%) synchronous to, and 4 (5.6%) after the IPMN. Most frequently diagnosed were colorectal (12 patients [6.1%]), breast (8 patients [6.8%, in females]), renal cell (8 patients [4.0%]), and prostate cancer (7 patients [8.6%, in males]). The O/E ratios for EPMs were significantly increased for cancer in general (3.66; 95% confidence interval [CI], 2.39-5.37), renal cell (9.62; 95% CI, 1.98-28.10), prostate (4.91; 95% CI, 1.59-11.45), and breast cancer (3.16; 95% CI, 1.03-7.37). CONCLUSIONS: We report an increased risk of EPMs in patients with IPMN, especially for renal cell, prostate, colorectal, and breast cancer.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND/AIM: In genetically engineered murine models of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas (PDAC), high levels of Runx3 increase the metastatic potential of cancer cells. In this study we evaluated the role of Runx3 in human pancreatic cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Runx3 was retrospectively assessed by immunohistochemistry in seventy-eight tumor samples of patients who underwent surgical resection for PDCA and were followed at least for 24 months. RESULTS: Thirty-two cases resulted completely negative for Runx3; forty-six showed highly variable expression. We established an optimal cut-off value of Runx3 in predicting distant metastasis equal to 0.04. The odds ratio (ORs) for development of distant metastases at multivariate analysis for patients having Runx3 ≥0.04 was 4.26 (p=0.043) and 4.68 (p=0.032) after adjusting for residual tumor and treatment, respectively; OR for development of metastases in multiple sites was 4.28 (p=0.025) for Runx3 ≥0.04. CONCLUSION: Our results support the ability of Runx3 to contribute to the dissemination of human PDAC thus confirming the observations from murine models.

3 Article Risk for Colorectal Adenomas Among Patients with Pancreatic Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms: a Prospective Case-Control Study. 2015

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND AND AIMS: It has been reported that patients with intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the pancreas are at an increased risk of colorectal cancer. The aim of our study was to investigate whether patients with intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms are at a higher risk of colorectal adenomas with respect to the general population, as this condition represents the precursor of sporadic colorectal cancer. METHODS: A case-control study was conducted at the Catholic University and University Sapienza, Rome, Italy. The cases were patients with intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms without history of colorectal cancer, who had underwent screening colonoscopy for the first time. The controls were individuals who had underwent first time colonoscopy for screening or evaluation of non-specific abdominal symptoms. Chi-square and Fisher tests were used to compare the distributions of categorical variables. RESULTS: We enrolled 122 cases and 246 controls. Colorectal polyps were found in 52 cases (42.6%) and 79 controls (32.1%) (p<0.05). In 29 cases (23.8%) and 57 controls (23.2%) histological examination disclosed adenomatous polyps (p=0.90). There was no difference between the groups in relation to the presence of polyps with low-grade (19.7% vs. 19.8%, p=0.98) and high-grade dysplasia (4.9% vs. 4.5%, p=0.85). CONCLUSION: Patients with intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the pancreas are not at an increased risk for the development of adenomatous colorectal polyps.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: The objectives of this study are to estimate prevalence and incidence of extrapancreatic malignancies (EPMs) among intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) of the pancreas, and to identify risk factors for their occurrence. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted multicentric cohort study in Italy from January 2010 to January 2011 including 390 IPMN cases. EPMs were grouped as previous, synchronous (both prevalent) and metachronous (incident). We calculated the observed/expected (O/E) ratio of prevalent EPMs, and compared the distribution of demographic, medical history and lifestyle habits. RESULTS: Ninety-seven EPMs were diagnosed in 92 patients (23.6%), among them 78 (80.4%) were previous, 14 (14.4%) were synchronous and 5 (5.2%) were metachronous. O/E ratios for prevalent EPMs were significantly increased for colorectal carcinoma (2.26; CI 95% 1.17-3.96), renal cell carcinoma (6.00; CI 95% 2.74-11.39) and thyroid carcinoma (5.56; CI 95% 1.80-12.96). Increased age, heavy cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption and first-degree family history of gastric cancer are significant risk factors for EPMs, while first-degree family history of colorectal carcinoma was borderline. CONCLUSION: We report an increased prevalence of EPMs in Italian patients with IPMN, especially for colorectal carcinoma, renal cell and thyroid cancers. A systematic surveillance of IPMN cases for such cancer types would be advised.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVES: To investigate environmental, personal, and hereditary risk factors associated with the occurrence of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the pancreas (IPMNs). METHODS: Multicentre case-control study. Risk factors were identified from a questionnaire collecting data on family and medical history, and environmental factors. Cases were prevalent IPMNs seen at the participating units within an 18-month timeframe. Matched controls were enrolled alongside patients seen at outpatient clinics. RESULTS: Three-hundred and ninety patients with IPMN and 390 matched controls (166 males, mean age 65 in each group) were enrolled. Of the IPMNs, 310 had branch-duct involvement and 80 main-duct involvement. The only cancer with a 1st degree family history significantly higher in IPMN was pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) (5.4% vs. 1.5%). Previous history of diabetes (13.6% vs. 7.5%), chronic pancreatitis (CP) (3.1% vs. 0.3%), peptic ulcer (7.2% vs. 4.3%), and insulin use (4.9% vs. 1.1%) were all more frequent with IPMNs. Logistic regression multivariate analysis revealed that history of diabetes (odds ratio (OR): 1.79, confidence interval (CI) 95%: 1.08-2.98), CP (OR: 10.10, CI 95%: 1.30-78.32), and family histories of PDAC (OR: 2.94, CI 95%: 1.17-7.39) were all independent risk factors. However, when analysis was restricted to diabetics who had taken insulin, risk of IPMN became stronger (OR: 6.03, CI 95%: 1.74-20.84). The association with all these risk factors seemed stronger for the subgroup with main duct involvement. CONCLUSIONS: A previous history of diabetes, especially with insulin use, CP, and family history of PDAC are all relevant risk factors for the development of IPMN. These results suggest an overlap between certain risk factors for PDAC and IPMN.
