Acute pancreatitis is the most frequent (5-10%) and severe complication after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), that could require of surgical intervention and lead to death. A double- blind study designed to evaluate if the treatment with somatostatin in intravenous bolus before starting the ERCP procedure followed by a continuous infusion for 4 hours after endoscopic proof could prevent acute post-ERCP pancreatitis. Patients submitted to ERCP will be randomized in two groups of treatment, one will receive somatostatin and another placebo. The main aim of this study will be the incidence of acute post-ERCP pancreatitis and secondary objectives will be identify sub-groups of patient with high risk to develop post-ERCP pancreatitis, who could benefit of pharmacologic prophylaxis before the exploration. The study will include 510 patients submitted to an ERCP during a period of 3 years.

Various vasoactive drugs are recommended to use in combination with endoscopic variceal ligation (EVL) in treating acute esophageal variceal bleeding (EVB). The efficacy and drug choice of...
The aim of this study is to investigate peripheral effects of Somatostatin on glucose metabolism and growth hormone (GH) signalling in healthy men. Eight subjects will be enrolled. The hyp...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether somatostatin is more effective that octreotide in the prevention of post-pancreatectomy pancreatic fistula
In patients who are suspected to have variceal bleedings, pharmacologic therapy with vasoactive drugs such as terlipressin, somatostatin, and octreotide is recommended as soon as possible,...
A Ga-HA-DOTATATE PET/CT scan is a nuclear medicine test used to create pictures of the whole body that will show where somatostatin receptors are found, including on tumours. Somatosta...
Somatostatin-14 is a native neuropeptide with widespread functions in the body. Self-assembly of somatostatin-14 into amyloid-like nanofibrils has been previously demonstrated in aqueous media. We her...
Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is a rare disease characterized by recurrent severe hypoglycemia. In the diffuse form of CHI, pharmacotherapy is the preferred choice of treatment. Long-acting somatos...
Systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) prevention is key to severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) treatment and the assessment of high-volume hemofiltration (HVHF) for treating SAP accompanying mult...

Serum amylase is a traditional measure used to establish the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis (AP). The current study aimed to assess the predictors and clinical outcome of AP with low serum amylase.
Cell surface proteins that bind somatostatin and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. Somatostatin is a hypothalamic hormone, a pancreatic hormone, and a central and peripheral neurotransmitter. Activated somatostatin receptors on pituitary cells inhibit the release of growth hormone; those on endocrine and gastrointestinal cells regulate the absorption and utilization of nutrients; and those on neurons mediate somatostatin's role as a neurotransmitter.
A 28-amino acid peptide with the same biological activities of somatostatin-14 but with a 14-amino acid extension at the N-terminal. SRIF-28 is the major form of somatostatin in the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT.
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.
Endocrine cells found throughout the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT and in islets of the PANCREAS. D cells secrete SOMATOSTATIN that acts in both an endocrine and paracrine manner. Somatostatin acts on a variety of tissues including the PITUITARY GLAND; gastrointestinal tract; pancreas; and KIDNEY by inhibiting the release of hormones, such as GROWTH HORMONE; GASTRIN; INSULIN; and RENIN.
A SOMATOSTATIN-secreting tumor derived from the pancreatic delta cells (SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS). It is also found in the INTESTINE. Somatostatinomas are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS; CHOLELITHIASIS; STEATORRHEA; and HYPOCHLORHYDRIA. The majority of somatostatinomas have the potential for METASTASIS.
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...
