Research Interests:

  1. On the ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas we are mainly carrying out two research lines: the first involves a randomized controlled trial on neoadjuvant chemotherapy and surgery versus surgery alone in ductal adenocarcinomas thought to be preoperatively resectable; the second concerns the safety and efficacy of radiofrequency use in locally advanced, non-resectable, non-metastatic ductal adenocarcinoma.
  2. On cystic tumors we have an observational study on incidental cystic lesions.
  3. A national multicenter observational study is underway on pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
  4. On the left resections of the pancreas, a multicentric, national RCT study on the use of biological materials is underway.
  5. Ministry of Education, University and Research - Scientific Research Programs of significant national interest (PRIN 2010)
  6. Research title: New therapies for pancreatic adenocarcinoma (5 research units involved)
  7. Specific title of our Research Unit: Genomic analysis of the neoadjuvant chemo radiotherapy response in the treatment of resectable and locally advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
  8. A multi-center, national RCT study on the use of SNG is underway on gastrorenections.
  9. Analysis and functions of the bio-humoral factors of inflammation in the postoperative ileum. Study protocol approved by the Ethics Committee of the S. Orsola-Malpighi Polyclinic on 15/05/2012, duration 12 months (POI-Proj / 2012 code).
  10. Prospective randomized study on the margin of the surgical piece after duodenocefalopancreasectomy for periampollar malignant neoplasia: polychromatic vs. monochromatic margination "Study protocol approved by the Ethics Committee of the S. Orsola-Malpighi Polyclinic on 15/07/2012.
