Jarnagin, M.D.: Pasireotide for Postoperative Pancreatic Fistula Although mortality after pancreatectomy has reduced to approximately 2 percent at high-volume centers, the operative morbidity after these methods has remained between 30 percent and 50 percent.1,2 Postoperative pancreatic fistula, leak, and abscess are complications that derive from leakage of pancreatic exocrine secretions at the anastomosis or closure of the pancreatic remnant.

The new hydrogel is more versatile than other 3-D gels utilized for developing glioma cells in part since it allows researchers to improve specific parameters – the gel's stiffness, for instance, or the current presence of molecular signals that may influence cancer growth – while minimally altering its other features, such as porosity. Being able to adjust these characteristics individually can help researchers tease out essential features associated with the initial development of a tumor in addition to its response to clinical therapies, stated University of Illinois chemical and biomolecular engineering professor Brendan Harley, who led the scholarly research with postdoctoral researcher Sara Pedron and undergraduate college student Eftalda Becka.
