Lactated Ringers Without Rectal Indomethacin to Prevent Post-ERCP Pancreatitis

Post-ERCP pancreatitis is a well-known and sometimes life-threatening complication of ERCP. Both LR and rectal indomethacin have shown benefit in preventing post-ERCP pancreatitis. Despite...

COX-2 Inhibitor to Prevent Post-ERCP Pancreatitis

Acute pancreatitis is the most common and feared complication of ERCP, occurring after 1% to 30% of procedures. Since 2012, a multicenter RCT was published in NEJM, indomethacin use in hig...

Trial of Aggressive Hydration Versus Rectal Indomethacin for Prevention of Post-ERCP Pancreatitis

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a commonly performed endoscopic procedure used to treat pancreato-biliary pathology. Acute pancreatitis or post-ERCP pancreatitis (...

A Double-Blind Study to Determine if Intraduodenal Indomethacin Can Decrease the Incidence of Post-ERCP Pancreatitis

The purpose of this research study is to determine if indomethacin, an anti-inflammatory medication in a class of medications known at NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) can re...

Rectal Indomethacin in the Prevention of Post-Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) Pancreatitis in High Risk Patients

A Randomized Trial of Topical Epinephrine and Rectal Indomethacin for Preventing Post-Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography Pancreatitis in High-Risk Patients.

Rectal indomethacin and topical spray of epinephrine have separately shown efficacy in the prevention of post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography pancreatitis (PEP) in randomized controlled...

Rapid Progression of Acute Pancreatitis to Acute Recurrent Pancreatitis in Children.

Research is lacking on the natural history of acute pancreatitis (AP) progression to acute recurrent pancreatitis (ARP). The aim of this project was to study the progression from AP to ARP among pedia...

Organ Failure due to Systemic Injury in Acute Pancreatitis.

Acute pancreatitis may be associated with both local and systemic complications. Systemic injury manifests in the form of organ failure which is seen in approximately 20% of all cases of acute pancrea...

Current management of acute idiopathic pancreatitis and acute recurrent pancreatitis.

Acute pancreatitis is an entity of notable importance due to its high incidence and its non-negligible morbidity and mortality. Idiopathic acute pancreatitis is that in which the cause of the clinical...


OBJECTIVE Albiglutide, a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1RA), reduces glycated hemoglobin (HbA) with a low risk of hypoglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes. The relationship betwee...

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.

C-type lectins that restrict growth of bacteria in the intestinal epithelia and have bactericidal activity against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. They also regulate proliferation and differentiation of KERATINOCYTES following injury. Human pancreatitis-associated protein-1 (Reg3a) is overexpressed by pancreatic ACINAR CELLS in patients with CHRONIC PANCREATITIS. It is also highly expressed by pancreatic, bladder, and gastrointestinal cancer cells and may serve as a diagnostic biomarker.

Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
