Background: There are a limited number of studies investigating the type of serum proteins capable of differentiating intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms from benign or malignant diseases of the pancreas. Aims: To select proteins able to differentiate intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms from benign and malignant pancreatic disease using semiquantitative proteomics. Methods: Serum samples were obtained from 74 patients (19 with type II intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms, 8 with type I/III intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms, 24 with chronic pancreatitis, 23 with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas) and 21 healthy subjects. Small proteins and peptides were assayed by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization for the detection of differentially abundant species possibly related to tumor onset. Serum pancreatic amylase, lipase, carcinoembryonic antigen and carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA 19-9) were also assayed. Results: Twenty-six of 84 peaks detected were dysregulated (7 more abundant and 19 less abundant in the type II intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms, p < 0.05). Of the differentially abundant peaks, 17 were commonly dysregulated (3 peaks more abundant and 13 less abundant in type II intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms, and one at m/z = 9961 at variance), indicating a protein fingerprint shared by types I/III and type II intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms and pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas. Conclusions: These results suggest that our approach can be used to differentiate type II intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms from type I/III neoplasms, and type II intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms from pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas.
