Pancreas Transplantation: The transference of a pancreas from one human or animal to another.Kidney Transplantation: The transference of a kidney from one human or animal to another.Kidney: Body organ that filters blood for the secretion of URINE and that regulates ion concentrations.Pancreas: A nodular organ in the ABDOMEN that contains a mixture of ENDOCRINE GLANDS and EXOCRINE GLANDS. The small endocrine portion consists of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS secreting a number of hormones into the blood stream. The large exocrine portion (EXOCRINE PANCREAS) is a compound acinar gland that secretes several digestive enzymes into the pancreatic ductal system that empties into the DUODENUM.Graft Survival: The survival of a graft in a host, the factors responsible for the survival and the changes occurring within the graft during growth in the host.Graft Rejection: An immune response with both cellular and humoral components, directed against an allogeneic transplant, whose tissue antigens are not compatible with those of the recipient.Liver Transplantation: The transference of a part of or an entire liver from one human or animal to another.Kidney Diseases: Pathological processes of the KIDNEY or its component tissues.Kidney Failure, Chronic: The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.Transplantation, Homologous: Transplantation between individuals of the same species. Usually refers to genetically disparate individuals in contradistinction to isogeneic transplantation for genetically identical individuals.Tissue Donors: Individuals supplying living tissue, organs, cells, blood or blood components for transfer or transplantation to histocompatible recipients.Living Donors: Non-cadaveric providers of organs for transplant to related or non-related recipients.Immunosuppressive Agents: Agents that suppress immune function by one of several mechanisms of action. Classical cytotoxic immunosuppressants act by inhibiting DNA synthesis. Others may act through activation of T-CELLS or by inhibiting the activation of HELPER CELLS. While immunosuppression has been brought about in the past primarily to prevent rejection of transplanted organs, new applications involving mediation of the effects of INTERLEUKINS and other CYTOKINES are emerging.Delayed Graft Function: General dysfunction of an organ occurring immediately following its transplantation. The term most frequently refers to renal dysfunction following KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.Tissue and Organ Procurement: The administrative procedures involved with acquiring TISSUES or organs for TRANSPLANTATION through various programs, systems, or organizations. These procedures include obtaining consent from TISSUE DONORS and arranging for transportation of donated tissues and organs, after TISSUE HARVESTING, to HOSPITALS for processing and transplantation.Kidney Tubules: Long convoluted tubules in the nephrons. They collect filtrate from blood passing through the KIDNEY GLOMERULUS and process this filtrate into URINE. Each renal tubule consists of a BOWMAN CAPSULE; PROXIMAL KIDNEY TUBULE; LOOP OF HENLE; DISTAL KIDNEY TUBULE; and KIDNEY COLLECTING DUCT leading to the central cavity of the kidney (KIDNEY PELVIS) that connects to the URETER.Cadaver: A dead body, usually a human body.Bone Marrow Transplantation: The transference of BONE MARROW from one human or animal to another for a variety of purposes including HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION or MESENCHYMAL STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION.Blood Group Incompatibility: An antigenic mismatch between donor and recipient blood. Antibodies present in the recipient's serum may be directed against antigens in the donor product. Such a mismatch may result in a transfusion reaction in which, for example, donor blood is hemolyzed. (From Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984).Heart Transplantation: The transference of a heart from one human or animal to another.Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation: Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.Waiting Lists: Prospective patient listings for appointments or treatments.Time Factors: Elements of limited time intervals, contributing to particular results or situations.Acute Kidney Injury: Abrupt reduction in kidney function. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.Lung Transplantation: The transference of either one or both of the lungs from one human or animal to another.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.Kidney Function Tests: Laboratory tests used to evaluate how well the kidneys are working through examination of blood and urine.Kidney Cortex: The outer zone of the KIDNEY, beneath the capsule, consisting of KIDNEY GLOMERULUS; KIDNEY TUBULES, DISTAL; and KIDNEY TUBULES, PROXIMAL.Transplantation, Autologous: Transplantation of an individual's own tissue from one site to another site.Tacrolimus: A macrolide isolated from the culture broth of a strain of Streptomyces tsukubaensis that has strong immunosuppressive activity in vivo and prevents the activation of T-lymphocytes in response to antigenic or mitogenic stimulation in vitro.Retrospective Studies: Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.Organ Transplantation: Transference of an organ between individuals of the same species or between individuals of different species.Mycophenolic Acid: An antibiotic substance derived from Penicillium stoloniferum, and related species. It blocks de novo biosynthesis of purine nucleotides by inhibition of the enzyme inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase. Mycophenolic acid is important because of its selective effects on the immune system. It prevents the proliferation of T-cells, lymphocytes, and the formation of antibodies from B-cells. It also may inhibit recruitment of leukocytes to inflammatory sites. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p1301)Polycystic Kidney Diseases: Hereditary diseases that are characterized by the progressive expansion of a large number of tightly packed CYSTS within the KIDNEYS. They include diseases with autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive inheritance.Transplantation Conditioning: Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.Histocompatibility Testing: Identification of the major histocompatibility antigens of transplant DONORS and potential recipients, usually by serological tests. Donor and recipient pairs should be of identical ABO blood group, and in addition should be matched as closely as possible for HISTOCOMPATIBILITY ANTIGENS in order to minimize the likelihood of allograft rejection. (King, Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)Transplantation Immunology: A general term for the complex phenomena involved in allo- and xenograft rejection by a host and graft vs host reaction. Although the reactions involved in transplantation immunology are primarily thymus-dependent phenomena of cellular immunity, humoral factors also play a part in late rejection.Immunosuppression: Deliberate prevention or diminution of the host's immune response. It may be nonspecific as in the administration of immunosuppressive agents (drugs or radiation) or by lymphocyte depletion or may be specific as in desensitization or the simultaneous administration of antigen and immunosuppressive drugs.Stem Cell Transplantation: The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.Postoperative Complications: Pathologic processes that affect patients after a surgical procedure. They may or may not be related to the disease for which the surgery was done, and they may or may not be direct results of the surgery.Research Support, U.S. Gov't, Non-P.H.S.Research Support, U.S. Gov't, P.H.S.Research Support, Non-U.S. Gov'tResearch Support, U.S. GovernmentResearch Support, American Recovery and Reinvestment ActFoundations: Organizations established by endowments with provision for future maintenance.Diabetes Mellitus, Type 1: A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.United StatesIslets of Langerhans Transplantation: The transference of pancreatic islets within an individual, between individuals of the same species, or between individuals of different species.Hemoglobin A, Glycosylated: Minor hemoglobin components of human erythrocytes designated A1a, A1b, and A1c. Hemoglobin A1c is most important since its sugar moiety is glucose covalently bound to the terminal amino acid of the beta chain. Since normal glycohemoglobin concentrations exclude marked blood glucose fluctuations over the preceding three to four weeks, the concentration of glycosylated hemoglobin A is a more reliable index of the blood sugar average over a long period of time.Hypoglycemia: A syndrome of abnormally low BLOOD GLUCOSE level. Clinical hypoglycemia has diverse etiologies. Severe hypoglycemia eventually lead to glucose deprivation of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM resulting in HUNGER; SWEATING; PARESTHESIA; impaired mental function; SEIZURES; COMA; and even DEATH.

Infections have increased in simultaneous pancreas/kidney transplant recipients (SPKTRs) with CMV-infection being the most important viral infection with adverse impact on patient and allograft outcomes. A comparison of CMV-infection between SPKTRs and kidney transplant recipients (KTRs), and the association of CMV-infection with other infectious complications in SPKTRs, however, remains scarcely described.. Here, we studied all primary SPKTRs and primary deceased-donor KTRs (,65 years) at our transplant center between 2008 and 2015 for the development of active CMV-infection. 21 of 62 SPKTRs (33.9%) and 90 of 335 KTRs (26.9%) were diagnosed with CMV viremia. A control group of 41 SPKTRs without CMV viremia was used for comparison.. SPKTRs showed an increased incidence of active CMV-infection compared to KTRs. SPKTRs were more likely to develop CMV-disease, CMV pneumonia, recurrent ...

AU - Radio, Stanley J. PY - 1995/1/1. Y1 - 1995/1/1. N2 - A common urologic complication after pancreas transplantation with bladder drainage is hematuria. However, hematuria is usually mild and self-limiting and rarely requires open surgical intervention. We report an unusual case of refractory hematuria that began 17 days after solitary pancreas transplantation due to severe rejection. The patient developed severe duodenal segment swelling with mucosal rupture that eventually required operative therapy. This case is illustrative of the diagnosis and management of gross hematuria after pancreas transplantation and demonstrates the limitations of cystoscopic techniques. This unusual ...

In the PKT group, 25 reoperations were performed in 18 patients (29.5%) at a mean of 39±12 days after transplant. In the solitary PT group, 16 reoperations were performed in 8 recipients (66.7%, p=0.03) at a mean of 87±12 days after PT (p,0.01). In the PKT ...
Cytomegalovirus in solid organ transplant recipients can result in significant morbidity and mortality due to concurrent immunosuppression. Traditionally intravenous followed by oral ganciclovir has been used to prevent and treat cytomegalovirus infection and disease in transplant recipients. Recently a new oral form of ganciclovir, valganciclovir has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of CMV retinitis in patients with AIDS. Valganciclovir is more bioavailable and requires fewer daily doses and lower pill burden than oral ganciclovir. In addition valganciclovir can attain ganciclovir plasma levels similar to intravenous ganciclovir. This protocol will test the ability of valganciclovir to provide similar drug exposure (area under the curve, AUC) as oral and intravenous ganciclovir at equivalent doses in the setting of kidney and kidney-pancreas ...
Clopidogrel is a potent inhibitor of platelet aggregation and has been used as an alternative, or as an adjunct to aspirin in reducing the risk of thrombosis. A 34-year-old uremic type 1 male diabetic patient who underwent simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplantation was given clopidogrel as he was allergic to aspirin. He developed polyarthralgia one week later, followed in a few days by symmetrical migratory polyarthritis, which resolved completely on withdrawing the drug. The implications to clinical management in a transplant setting are discussed.

Objective. In kidney transplanation, some upper pole branches are too thin to be reconstructed. The impact of graft thin upper pole arterial branch ligation on adult living donor kidney transplantation remains to be investigated. Methods. Between January 2008 and May 2015, 604 adult living donor kidney transplants were performed. 462 kidney grafts with single arteries (Single artery group), 125 kidney grafts with reconstructed arteries (Reconstruction group), and 17 kidney grafts with ligated thin upper pole arterial branch (Ligation group) were enrolled. To evaluate the efficacy of thin upper pole ligation, Ligation group was compared with other groups. Characteristics of donors, ...
We are a leading center for living donor kidney transplant and incompatible blood type kidney transplant in adult and pediatric kidney transplant patients.
Introduction: The development of de novo donor-specific antibodies (dnDSA) has been associated with rejection and graft loss in kidney transplantation, and DSA screening is now recommended in all kidney transplant recipients. However, the clinical significance of dnDSA in patients with a stable creatinine remains unclear. Methods: We performed a retrospective cohort study of 103 patients receiving a first, kidney alone transplant between 12/1/2007 and 12/31/2013. Inclusion criteria were age ,18 years old at the time of transplant and at least two years of DSA monitoring. All patients underwent DSA screening every 3 months post-transplant with additional testing as clinically indicated. No treatment was given for DSAs in the absence of biopsy-proven rejection. Results: 20 patients (19%) developed dnDSA in the setting of a stable creatinine ...

BACKGROUND: C-reactive protein (CRP) is a predictor of coronary heart disease, total mortality and chronic allograft nephropathy in renal transplant recipients. The determinants of CRP have been investigated in the general population, but not in renal transplant recipients. CRP might reflect metabolic aberrations in association with central obesity and systemic atherosclerosis. However, it may also reflect a low-grade immune-mediated response to the graft. In this study we investigated the factors associated with CRP in a renal transplant population. METHODS: Between August 2001 and July 2003, renal transplant recipients with a functioning graft for more than 1 year (n = 847) were eligible for investigation at their next visit to the outpatient clinic. A total of 606 patients (55% male, aged 51+/-12 years) participated at a median (interquartile range) time of 6.0 (2.6-11.4) years post-transplant. RESULTS: Median CRP concentration was 2.0 (0.80-4.8) mg/l and mean 24 h creatinine clearance was 62+/-22 ml
The ultimate goal of clinical transplantation is for the recipients to achieve long-term survival, with continuing graft function, that is equivalent to that of the age-matched general population. We studied subsequent outcome in kidney transplant recipients with 10 years of graft function. In all, 2202 kidney transplant recipients survived with graft function ,10 years. For 10-year survivors, the actuarial 25-year patient survival rate for primary transplant living donor (LD) recipients was 57%; graft survival, 43%. For primary transplant deceased donor (DD) recipients, the actuarial 25-year patient survival rate was 39%; graft survival, 27%. The two major causes of late graft loss were death (with graft function) and chronic allograft nephropathy (tubular atrophy and interstitial fibrosis). The two major causes of death with function were cardiovascular disease (CVD) and malignancy. For ...
Uremia has long been recognized to disrupt the normal physiology of numerous organs, including the heart (2,3). Over the last 30 years, echocardiography studies have found adverse changes in cardiac structure and function associated with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), which is collectively termed uremic cardiomyopathy. These cardiac abnormalities, including left ventricular hypertrophy and systolic dysfunction, are common in hemodialysis and are associated with an increased risk of adverse clinical outcomes (4). However, the precise nature of the uremic mediators of cardiac dysfunction remain elusive. Kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice for selected patients with ESRD. A successful kidney transplantation improves the quality of life and reduces the mortality risk for most patients compared with maintenance dialysis (5). However, 50% to 60% of deaths among ...

Whether or not a recipient achieves the best-predicted eGFR after KTx may have important implications for immediate patient management, as well as for long-term graft survival. The aim of this cohort study was to calculate the renal function recovery (RFR) based on recipient and donor eGFR and to evaluate the association between RFR and long-term death-censored graft failure (DCGF). We studied 790 KTx recipients between January 1990 and August 2014. The last donor SCr prior to organ procurement was used to ...
The Banff Classification is a schema for nomenclature and classification of renal allograft pathology, established in 1991 by Kim Solez and Lorraine C. Racusen in Banff, Canada. The initiative was "inspired by the then recent development of a consensus grading system for diagnosis of rejection in cardiac allografts led by Dr Margaret Billingham, a key participant at the first Banff meeting". Prior the Banff Classification there was no standardized, international classification for renal allograft biopsies, which resulted in considerable heterogeneity among pathologists in characterization of renal allograft biopsies. The first Banff schema was published in 1993, and has since undergone updates at regular intervals. The classification is expanded and updated every two years in meetings organized by the Banff Foundation for Allograft Pathology. An evaluation of the Banff Classification in March 2000 confirmed significant association between the revised Banff 97 classification and graft outcome. ...

HPB Surgery is a peer-reviewed, Open Access journal that offers ready access to important developments in the field of HPB surgery and associated disciplines. We aim to publish fresh experimental and clinical work across the spectrum of HPB disease, while concentrating on those conditions for which surgical treatment - not necessarily an actual operation - is a common option. Thus diabetes mellitus and hepatitis, for example, might belong more appropriately elsewhere, though not if the paper should concern pancreatic transplantation or virally-induced hepatoma.

The islets of Langerhans are the regions of the pancreas that contain its endocrine (i.e., hormone-producing) cells. Discovered in 1869 by German pathological anatomist Paul Langerhans, the islets of Langerhans constitute approximately 1% to 2% of the mass of the pancreas. There are about one million islets distributed throughout the pancreas of a healthy adult human. Each is separated from the surrounding pancreatic tissue by a thin fibrous connective tissue capsule. The islets of Langerhans contain beta cells, which secrete insulin, and play a significant role in diabetes.. Islets are widely used for transplantation to restore beta cell function from diabetes, offering an alternative to a complete pancreas transplantation or an artificial pancreas. Because the beta cells in the islets of Langerhans are selectively destroyed by an autoimmune process in type 1 diabetes, islet ...

The dynamics of leucocytes in abdominal abscesses were studied using indium-111 autologous leucocyte scanning in 30 patients. Thirteen patients showing enteric drainage of leucocytes on delayed scans were characterised by a lack of abdominal localising signs and a low detection rate by ultrasound (25%). By contrast, 16 of 17 patients without enteric drainage had abdominal signs, and in these patients ultrasound was associated with a higher detection rate (58%). Despite the presence of an enteric route of drainage for the abscess 10 of the 13 patients needed surgical intervention. These results help explain the wide variation in clinical presentation of abdominal abscesses; suggest that 111In leucocyte scanning should be the initial investigation in those patients without focal signs; and show that formal surgical drainage is needed in patients recognised as having enteric communication with abscesses. ...
Successful pancreas preservation during storage in oxygenated perfluorodecalin (PFD) is mainly related to oxidative ATP generation during storage. Increasing the storage temperature would accelerate this process essential for resuscitation of ischemically damaged pancreatic tissue. The present study aimed at comparing islet isolation outcome from adult pig pancreata preserved in oxygenated PFD by means of a one-layer method during storage on ice or at 20 degrees C. Resected pancreata were intraductally flushed with cold UW solution and promptly processed (n = 6) or stored for 3 h in continuously oxygenated PFD at 4 degrees C (n = 5) or 20 degrees C (n = 7). Prior to digestion-filtration pancreata were intraductally injected with UW supplemented with Serva collagenase NB8 and neutral protease. Islet quality assessment determined viability, glucose stimulation index, mitochondrial activity, intracellular ATP content, and transplant function in diabetic nude mice. Pancreata oxygenated for 3 h ...

Type I diabetes mellitus is a disease that results from autoimmune destruction of the insulin-producing beta-cells. Certain beta-cell proteins act as autoantigens after being processed by antigen-presenting cell (APC), such as macrophages and dendritic cells, and presented in a complex with MHC-II molecules on the surface of the APC. Then immunogenic signals from APC activate CD4+ T cells, predominantly of the Th1 subset. Antigen-activated Th1 cells produce IL-2 and IFNgamma. They activate macrophages and cytotoxic CD8+ T cells, and these effector cells may kill islet beta-cells by one or both of two types of mechanisms: (1) direct interactions of antigen-specific cytotoxic T cells with a beta-cell autoantigen-MHC-I complex on the beta-cell, and (2) non-specific inflammatory mediators, such as free radicals/oxidants and cytokines (IL-1, TNFalpha, TNFbeta, IFNgamma). Type I diabetes is a polygenic disease. One of the principle determining genetic factors in diabetes incidence is the inheritance ...

All forms of diabetes have been treatable since insulin became available in 1921, and type 2 diabetes may be controlled with medications. Both types 1 and 2 are chronic conditions that usually cannot be cured. Pancreas transplants have been tried with limited success in type 1 DM; gastric bypass surgery has been successful in many with morbid obesity and type 2 DM. Gestational diabetes usually resolves after delivery. Diabetes without proper treatments can cause many complications. Acute complications include hypoglycemia, diabetic ketoacidosis, or nonketotic hyperosmolar coma. Serious long-term complications include cardiovascular disease, chronic renal failure, and diabetic retinopathy (retinal damage). Adequate treatment of diabetes is thus important, as well as blood pressure control and lifestyle factors such as smoking cessation and maintaining a healthy body weight. ...

A catheter assembly for collecting fluid from a tubular organ into a drainage system includes a tubular body portion (12) having an end portion (14) and an intermediate portion (16) adjacent thereto. The end portion (14) includes a retaining balloon (30) for retaining the intermediate portion (16) within the tubular organ. The intermediate portion (16) includes a portion having an outer diameter smaller than the inner diameter of the catheterized tubular organ for allowing the free flow of fluid from the tubular organ and over the intermediate portion (16) to maintain the tubular organ infection free. A collection mechanism is operatively connected to the intermediate portion (16) and spaced from the end portion (14). The collection mechanism is insertable into the tubular organ for collecting the fluid flowing over the intermediate portion (16) and preventing fluid from escaping from the drainage system. A method of using the catheter assembly (10) is also disclosed.

We studied the ability of lymphocytes from type I (insulin-dependent) diabetic patients to adhere to murine β-cells. Lymphocytes from 17 recent-onset type I diabetic subjects (,6 mo) displayed enhanced ability to form rosettes with RINm5F cells (P , .001) compared with lymphocytes from 27 healthy subjects forming background rosettes, whereas the number of RIN cytoadherent lymphocytes was unimpaired in 12 type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetic subjects. This phenomenon tended to decline in 21 subjects with long-standing diabetes (,1 yr) who taken as a group presented a normal number of RIN rosetting lymphocytes. The islet specificity of these diabetic rosettes was confirmed because, compared with controls, lymphocytes from recent-onset type I diabetic subjects also displayed a greater intensity of adherence to normal mouse islets but not to unrelated K562 and TS cell lines. As demonstrated by indirect immunofluorescence studies, these diabetic rosettes contained 54% of T-lymphocytes (OKT3+, ...

The aim of this study was to investigate the role of plasma glucagon levels on the blood glucose response to intravenous insulin administered continuously or in a pulsatile manner. Six type I diabetic patients proven to have no residual insulin secretion were investigated. Endogenous glucagon secretion was inhibited by a continuous intravenous infusion of somatostatin (100 micrograms/h) and replaced by exogenous infusions of the hormone at three different rates (7.5, 4.5, and 2.5 micrograms/h), resulting in three different plasma glucagon steady-state levels (i.e., approximately equal to 200, approximately equal to 130, and approximately equal to 75 pg/ml, respectively). Each subject, in random order and on different days, was infused intravenously ...
Jaquelyn McCandless, M.D., Woodland Hills, California. I have been a happy subscriber to CERI s Smart Life News for four or five years now, and though I m not a chemist or scientist of any sort, I ve found it useful and even fascinating reading. I often share it with my integrative health practitioners. I am a long-time user of DHEA/pregnenolone and appreciate your many articles on those substances as well as the serotoninergic, noradrenergic and dopaminergic systems. Yes, this subscription has been a good investment not only for the information which is personally useful to me, but sometimes it sheds light on conditions or situations with which my clients, family or friends are dealing. Your article on insulin resistance was particularly interesting in that my partner is a type I diabetic. Many of your articles touch on areas relevant to his condition, especially the latest issue commenting on the significance of gluten antibodies among type I diabetics (my partner suffers from gastroparesis, ...
Accessory pancreas is a rare condition in which small groups of pancreatic cells are separate from the pancreas. They may occur in the mesentery of the small intestine, the wall of the duodenum, the upper part of the jejunum, or more rarely, in the wall of the stomach, ileum, gallbladder or spleen. The condition was first described by Klob in 1859. Accessory pancreas is a small cluster of pancreas cells detached from the pancreas and sometimes found in the wall of the stomach or intestines. After researching accessory pancreas at the University of Louisville medical library, I found a list of medical cases and the doctors that operated on the patients with this condition. In 1904, Dr. A. S. Warthin found 47 cases in the literature and added 2. Up to 1921, 31 cases were added. Twelve cases were found at operation. A number of patients have been operated upon for this trouble since then. E. J. Horgan found 2 ...

In pregnancy, HUS usually appears after delivery, but may be sometimes difficult to distinguish from HELLP syndrome. In HELLP syndrome, the TMA process seems mainly localized to the liver microcirculation, and is not related to alternate pathway activation.. aHUS is not a disease limited to children, and adult cases are well described, even after 80 years. The clinical presentation is not specific, and may include acute diarrhea which suggests STEC-HUS, or CNS signs which suggest TTP. Cardiac involvement may also occur.. The prognosis of aHUS was poor, with a 50% dialysis-free kidney survival at 5 years in children and and a 20% dialysis-free kidney survival in adults, when antihypertensive drugs, dialysis, and plasma exchanges were the only treatments. More recently, the use of eculizumab, a monoclonal humanized anti-C5 antibody, has changed dramatically the prognosis of the disease. In more than 95% of the ...

A study was made of the effectiveness of the use of new monopeak insulin drugs of short-term and prolonged action in therapy of 30 patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus. The effect of the drugs was estimated during a follow-up (1-6 mos.) by the parameters of carbohydrate metabolism and the time course of serum insulin binding capacity as well as by change in a dose of insulin as compared to that of the common Soviet drugs of the insulin-zink-suspension (IZS) group and monopeak drugs of the Long group. The drugs under study were shown to be no inferior to the monopeak drugs of the Long group and in some cases superior to the drugs of the IZS group. A significant decrease in the titer of antibodies to insulin against a background of therapy was unnoticed. Positive and negative qualities of both drugs (Insulrap and Insulong) were discussed.

The enzymes are not active when they are first made within the pancreas (otherwise they would digest the pancreas as well) but when they pass into the bowel they are activated by the juices in the bowel.

The bile, which comes from the liver, is also very important for the digestion of fat because it acts like a soap and breaks up the fat into minute droplets so that the pancreatic lipase can digest it ...

Other groups have previously performed similar comparisons, but only one study undertook analyses that are directly comparable to ours. In this study, data from consecutively reported pancreas donors for the period January 2002 to June 2005 were used to establish a prognostic score for the acceptance of a pancreas, the pre-procurement pancreas suitability score (P-PASS) [19]. 1,190 accepted pancreata were compared with 985 refused organs. In line with our findings, donors of pancreata that were not accepted were older, had fewer traumatic brain deaths, stayed on ICU for a longer period and had higher median values for sodium, amylase and lipase. In contrast to our study, Vinkers et al. did not find a difference in median BMI. They also reported that the gender distribution between groups was almost identical whereas we discovered the proportion of males to be significantly higher in those whose pancreas was discarded. As expected, median ...
