    Affected individuals may also exhibit diarrhea, excess fats in the stools (steatorrhea), and pale or clay-colored stools due to the suppression of bile flow (acholic stools[]

  • Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

    AIMS: The aim of our study was to analyse correlations between KRAS mutation status, chromosomal changes that affect KRAS status in cells from pancreatic tumours. METHODS: We collected 69 cases of surgically resected pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA) and seven cases of chronic pancreatitis (CP).[…][]
