  • immune system
  • Consuming food containing gluten is dangerous for people with this disease: Intestinal villi help to absorb nutrients from food, but when gluten is consumed, the immune system attacks these villi as a result. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • The vast majority of cases (about 99%) occur in the part of the pancreas which produces digestive enzymes, known as the exocrine component. (wikipedia.org)
  • gastrointestinal
  • citation needed] Stomach rumbles can form further along the gastrointestinal system when air is swallowed while talking, eating, and drinking. (wikipedia.org)
  • The various kinds of cells that can give rise to NETs are present in endocrine glands and are also diffusely distributed throughout the body, most commonly Kulchitsky cells or similar enterochromaffin-like cells, that are relatively more common in the gastrointestinal and pulmonary systems. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • Although there are many kinds of NETs, they are treated as a group of tissue because the cells of these neoplasms share common features, such as looking similar, having special secretory granules, and often producing biogenic amines and polypeptide hormones. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is despite the fact that the tissue from which it arises - the pancreatic ductal epithelium - represents less than 10% of the pancreas by cell volume, because it constitutes only the ducts (an extensive but capillary-like duct-system fanning out) within the pancreas. (wikipedia.org)
  • brain
  • Around two hours after the stomach has been emptied, it sends signals to the brain, which tells the digestive muscles to restart peristalsis in a wave called the migrating motor complex. (wikipedia.org)
  • common
  • With the intent to be clinically useful, a prognostic system must achieve not only the most common performance metrics, such as discrimination and calibration, but also an adequate coverage of the population in which it would be applied. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • addition
  • Last but not least, a prognostic system should also provide for an individual prediction in addition to risk-stratification, with the intent to offer personalized prognostication for each different patient. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • classification
  • In this classification system, cases of DPAM were characterized by peritoneal lesions composed of abundant extracellular mucin containing scant simple to focally proliferative mucinous epithelium with little cytologic atypia or mitotic activity (in other words, most cells looked fairly normal and there was no evidence of mitosis which would indicate that cells were rapidly dividing), with or without an associated appendiceal mucinous adenoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • Class R: Medicine is a classification used by the Library of Congress Classification system. (wikipedia.org)
  • multiple
  • Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology. (icd10data.com)
  • At the other end of this spectrum, detection of the myeloid protein indicates the presence of a hematological malignancy, i.e. multiple myeloma, Waldenström's macroglobulinemia, or other B cell-associated neoplasm, that derives stepwise from its MGUS precursors. (wikipedia.org)
