2017-01-11 03:38:21 | BioPortfolio


Severe acute pancreatitis is an acute and rapid progress of the digestive system disease.Most patients with severe pancreatitis associated with intestinal mucosal barrier dysfunction.Intestinal microflora,an important part of the intestinal mucosal barrier, play an important role in the development process in the course of severe acute pancreatitis. At this stage of the study that infection of pancreas and other organs is the leading cause of death in patients with severe acute pancreatitis,and the main pathogens from intestinal micro-organisms, but the intestinal flora changes did not be mentioned. Fecal Microbiota Transplantation that has been used for treatment of inflammatory bowel disease and Clostridium difficile infection may be a new technology for regulation of intestinal mucosal dysfunction and intestinal flora unbalance.


Patients with acute pancreatitis will be assessed depengding on APACHEII and CT score and all of them also will be separated into two parts depending on acception or refuse of FMT. Blood specimens from patients will be collected to analysis inflammatory factors,and fecal microbiota samples will be detection.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS. Pancreatitis is classified as acute unless there are computed tomographic or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographic findings of CHRONIC PANCREATITIS (International Symposium on Acute Pancreatitis, Atlanta, 1992). The two most common forms of acute pancreatitis are ALCOHOLIC PANCREATITIS and gallstone pancreatitis.

Acute or chronic INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS due to excessive ALCOHOL DRINKING. Alcoholic pancreatitis usually presents as an acute episode but it is a chronic progressive disease in alcoholics.

A severe form of acute INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS characterized by one or more areas of NECROSIS in the pancreas with varying degree of involvement of the surrounding tissues or organ systems. Massive pancreatic necrosis may lead to DIABETES MELLITUS, and malabsorption.

An inflammatory disease and serious complication of PANCREAS TRANSPLANTATION. It is caused by a premature activation of pancreatic proenzymes leading to autodigestion of the gland and can be attributed to immunological or nonimmunological causes.

The normal process of elimination of fecal material from the RECTUM.
