  • Infection
  • This study will compare different ways of giving the drugs ganciclovir and valganciclovir to kidney or kidney and pancreas transplant recipients to determine the most effective dose of valganciclovir for protecting against cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in these patients. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This study evaluated that strict control of perioperative blood glucose following pancreatic resection by using an artificial pancreas would improve postoperative surgical site infection. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • pathway
  • These data indicate that the Delta-Notch pathway, which controls embryonic development of the mouse endocrine pancreas, can also operate in adult human duct cells driving them to a neuroendocrine phenotype with the formation of insulin-expressing cells. (semanticscholar.org)
  • duct
  • The present study demonstrates that adult human pancreatic duct cells can be converted into insulin-expressing cells after ectopic, adenovirus-mediated expression of the class B basic helix-loop-helix factor neurogenin 3 (ngn3), which is a critical factor in embryogenesis of the mouse endocrine pancreas. (semanticscholar.org)
  • In 10% of people, the minor duodenal papilla is the prime duct for drainage of the pancreas, although in others it may not be present at all. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] The duct is an embryological remnant, however in a small majority of people drains the pancreas. (wikipedia.org)
  • insulin
  • We prospectively divided into two groups: one for whom glucose levels were controlled using a manual injection of insulin according to the commonly used sliding scale and another that received programmed infusion of insulin determined by the control algorithm of the artificial pancreas. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The artificial pancreas being developed is based on an automated, closed-loop system that offers an insulin infusion pump, a continuous glucose monitor and a glucose meter, which work together to check on blood sugar levels and manage insulin doses. (diabetes.co.uk)
  • diabetes
  • See 'Patient selection for and immunologic issues relating to kidney-pancreas transplantation in diabetes mellitus' . (uptodate.com)
  • The goal of this approach is to give you a healthy kidney and pancreas that are unlikely to contribute to diabetes-related kidney damage in the future. (mayoclinic.org)
  • In the United States in 2006, JDRF (formerly the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) launched a multi-year initiative to help accelerate the development, regulatory approval, and acceptance of continuous glucose monitoring and artificial pancreas technology. (wikipedia.org)
  • Grassroots efforts to create and commercialize a fully automated artificial pancreas system have also arisen directly from patient advocates and the diabetes community. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the event of rejection of the new pancreas, which would quickly cause life-threatening diabetes, there would be a significant chance the recipient would not survive very well for long without the native pancreas, however dysfunctional, still in place. (wikipedia.org)
  • In most cases, pancreas transplantation is performed on individuals with type 1 diabetes with end-stage renal disease, brittle diabetes and hypoglycaemia unawareness. (wikipedia.org)
  • hormones
  • When these hormones reach the pancreas, the pancreatic cells are stimulated to produce and release large amounts of water, bicarbonate, and digestive enzymes, which then flow into the intestine. (britannica.com)
  • 2017
  • Let Me Eat Your Pancreas (Japanese: 君の膵臓をたべたい, Hepburn: Kimi no Suizo wo Tabetai) is a 2017 Japanese romance drama film starring Minami Hamabe, Takumi Kitamura, Keiko Kitagawa and Shun Oguri. (wikipedia.org)
  • spleen
  • The pancreas is a long, narrow gland that is situated transversely across the upper abdomen, behind the stomach and the spleen. (britannica.com)
  • acinar
  • The cells in the pancreas that produce digestive enzymes are called acinar cells (from Latin acinus , meaning "grape"), so named because the cells aggregate to form bundles that resemble a cluster of grapes. (britannica.com)
  • cells
  • the bioengineering approach-the development of a bio-artificial pancreas consisting of a biocompatible sheet of encapsulated beta cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Blood
  • Artificial pancreas (AP) systems will automate blood-sugar management, dramatically reducing T1D-related risks and improving lives of people who have the disease. (jdrf.org)
  • That's why JDRF is committed to advancing technology like artificial pancreas systems that can automate blood-sugar management, making life with T1D easier and safer overall. (jdrf.org)
  • The pancreas receives blood from branches of both the coeliac artery and superior mesenteric artery. (wikipedia.org)
