The purpose of the study is to evaluate the enzyme activity and safety of pancrelipase in patients with severe Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI)
This study will assess the effect of pancrelipase delayed release 12,000 unit capsules on fat and nitrogen absorption in subjects 7 - 11 with pancreatic exocrine insufficiency due to Cysti...
Does pancreas enzyme replacement (PERT) decrease weight loss and improve quality of life in patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer?
The study purpose is to characterize the effect of pancreatic enzyme supplementation on chronic pancreatitis type pain.
This study will assess the safety and tolerability of pancrelipase delayed release capsules in subjects up to 6 years of age with PEI due to Cystic Fibrosis.
A diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in a first-degree relative increases an individuals' risk of this cancer. However, it is not clear whether this cancer risk increases in individuals with pancreatic cy...
Pancreatic cancer is the fifth most common cause of cancer death in the UK. This disease often remains undiagnosed until it is at a late stage, resulting in the majority of tumours being unsuitable fo...
Pancreatic cancer is considered as one of the most lethal types of cancer due to its poor prognosis and lack of effective therapeutic approaches. Although many studies have been done on pancreatic can...
Currently, there are no effective preventive strategies for pancreatic cancer. Obesity has been increasingly recognized as a strong but modifiable risk factor of pancreatic cancer. In this article, we...
To analyze the expression of micro-RNA 143 (miRNA-143) in the patients with pancreatic cancer and to explore the influence of overexpression of miRNA-143 on pancreatic cancer cells.
A preparation of hog pancreatic enzymes standardized for lipase content.
Tumors or cancer of the PANCREAS. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: GLUCAGON from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (INSULINOMA).
Star-shaped, myofibroblast-like cells located in the periacinar, perivascular, and periductal regions of the EXOCRINE PANCREAS. They play a key role in the pathobiology of FIBROSIS; PANCREATITIS; and PANCREATIC CANCER.
A 36-amino acid pancreatic hormone that is secreted mainly by endocrine cells found at the periphery of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS and adjacent to cells containing SOMATOSTATIN and GLUCAGON. Pancreatic polypeptide (PP), when administered peripherally, can suppress gastric secretion, gastric emptying, pancreatic enzyme secretion, and appetite. A lack of pancreatic polypeptide (PP) has been associated with OBESITY in rats and mice.
Extracts prepared from pancreatic tissue that may contain the pancreatic enzymes or other specific uncharacterized factors or proteins with specific activities. PANCREATIN is a specific extract containing digestive enzymes and used to treat pancreatic insufficiency.
