DNA content of pancreatic duct hyperplasia and carcinoma.

Abstract

The DNA content of epithelial nuclei of hyperplastic and carcinomatous ducts of the pancreas was examined cytophotometrically. The materials were obtained from 2 cases of nonpapillary hyperplasia, 3 of papillary hyperplasia, 2 of atypical hyperplasia and 2 of tubular adenocarcinoma, which were selected by reviewing the pancreata of about 1,600 human autopsy cases. A gradual shift was observed in the DNA content from the normal level to a carcinomatous level through various stages of hyperplasia. Based on these findings, the hypothesis that pancreatic duct hyperplasia is a potent precursor of pancreatic carcinoma is discussed.
