Pancreatic exocrine insufficiency is known to impair nutrient absorption, especially fat, but few data exist about protein absorption. We aimed to investigate this question and assess the enzyme substitution efficiency using a sensitive method.

Faecal elastase is an enzyme test used to identify the presence of pancreatic exocrine insufficiency. This condition manifests with symptoms of diarrhea, weight loss, causing potential imp...
The objective is to evaluate the dietary nitrogen assimilation and metabolic utilisation capability of patients with chronic pancreatitis.
The study purpose is to characterize the effect of pancreatic enzyme supplementation on chronic pancreatitis type pain.
This study will provide efficacy data for Creon 25000 MMS in PS patients as well as long-term safety data. During the long-term treatment with Creon 25000 nutritional parameters will be as...
The study investigates the effect of pancreatic enzymes on steatorrhea in HIV patients.
Chronic pancreatitis (CP) can lead to severe pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (PEI). Pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) is well established, but knowledge of the physiological response to i...
Chronic pancreatitis has been considered over the past years as a single disease, alcohol-induced and different from acute pancreatitis, in terms of etiology and prognosis. Actually, the introduction ...
Step-up therapy is the recommended therapy for infected necrotizing pancreatitis (INP). However, the most appropriate secondary therapy for use after initial drainage has not been fully determined. Th...
Acute pancreatitis in children acute lymphoblastic leukemia is commonly caused by drugs, for example, L-Asparaginase, pegapargase, steroids. The incidence of this complication is estimated at 6.7% to ...
To describe the epidemiology and clinical features of acute pancreatitis and recurrent acute pancreatitis in children.
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.
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.
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.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
Therapeutic replacement or supplementation of defective or missing enzymes to alleviate the effects of the enzyme deficiency (e.g., GLUCOSYLCERAMIDASE replacement for GAUCHER DISEASE).
Pancreatitis Acute pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas caused by the release of activated pancreatic enzymes. Common triggers are biliary tract disease and chronic heavy alcohol intake. Diagnosis is based on clinical presentation...
Enzymes are proteins that catalyze (i.e., increase the rates of) chemical reactions. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process, called substrates, are converted into different molecules, called products. Almost all chemical re...
