To develop a new standardized multimodal diagnostic approach to CP considering fat in faeces, imaging and functional testing; the combination of tests has to be easy to practice, should take as little time as possible and discomfort for the patient has to be minimized
To evaluate the reliability and feasibility of these novel methods in healthy volunteers; AND
To compare findings in known severe CP patients and different stages of pancreatic insufficiency in patients with CP.

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
Chronic pancreatitis is a progressive inflammatory disease resulting in slow destruction of the pancreas. This chronic inflammation can lead to chronic abdominal pain which can last for ma...
Chronic pancreatitis (CP) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the pancreas. This study aimed to compare the natural course of alcoholic chronic pancreatitis (ACP) and idiopathic chronic pancreatitis ...
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 ...
The significance of pancreas divisum (PD) as a risk factor for pancreatitis is controversial. We analyzed the characteristics of children with PD associated with acute recurrent or chronic pancreatiti...
Pancreatitis is an inflammatory disease characterized by the induction of several pro-inflammatory cytokines like interleukin (IL)-6, IL-8, IL-1β, and IL-1. Recently, a multifunctional innate cytokin...
Introduction: The relevance of study, assessment and prediction of the life quality of patients with chronic pancreatitis to improve the provision of medical care and rehabilitation is high, since it ...
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
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...
