The purpose of this study is to compare the incidence of post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) in chronic pancreatitis (CP) patients to that in biliary disease patients, to determine whether CP pat...
Primary objective: To describe and compare the safety and efficacy of treatment with AAT in chronic pancreatitis patients who undergo total pancreatectomy and islet autotransplantation (TP...
This randomized phase II trial studies how well simvastatin works in reducing pancreatitis (the inflammation of the pancreas) in patients with pancreatitis that occurs more than once (recu...
Dietary Soy Isoflavones in Chronic Pancreatitis: Investigating the Anti-inflammatory Effects of Food Innovation Science on Gastrointestinal Disease
Observational prospective study evaluating the developement of chronic pancreatitis based on imaging modalities as well as biochemical markers of inflammation, fibrosis and oxidative stres...
Chronic pancreatitis is a chronic condition characterized by pancreatic inflammation that causes fibrosis and the destruction of exocrine and endocrine tissues. Chronic pancreatitis is a progressive d...
Inroduction: The urgency of the problem of chronic pancreatitis is increasing due to the fact that in 70.0% - 90.0% of cases of diseases of the digestive system are accompanied by pathology of other o...
The aim of the present study was to investigate the natural history of chronic pancreatitis (CP); patients in the North American Pancreatitis Study2 (NAPS2, adults) and INternational Study group of Pe...
The pancreatic burnout hypothesis postulated an increasing absence of pain with simultaneous functional insufficiency in advanced stages of chronic pancreatitis (CP). However, the underlying data rema...
With an increasing number of hospital admissions, an average of 16-to 20 days in hospital per year, 34% of patients constantly taking pain medication, 57% in need of enzyme supplementation, and 29% w...
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.
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.
INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS that is characterized by recurring or persistent ABDOMINAL PAIN with or without STEATORRHEA or DIABETES MELLITUS. It is characterized by the irregular destruction of the pancreatic parenchyma which may be focal, segmental, or diffuse.
Cyst-like space not lined by EPITHELIUM and contained within the PANCREAS. Pancreatic pseudocysts account for most of the cystic collections in the pancreas and are often associated with chronic PANCREATITIS.
