Pathological processes of the PANCREAS.
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.
Tests based on the biochemistry and physiology of the exocrine pancreas and involving analysis of blood, duodenal contents, feces, or urine for products of pancreatic secretion.
The fluid containing digestive enzymes secreted by the pancreas in response to food in the duodenum.
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.
Tumors or cancer of the PANCREAS. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: GLUCAGON from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (INSULINOMA).
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.
Benzoic acids, salts, or esters that contain an amino group attached to carbon number 4 of the benzene ring structure.
A group of amylolytic enzymes that cleave starch, glycogen, and related alpha-1,4-glucans. (Stedman, 25th ed) EC 3.2.1.-.
Diseases in any part of the BILIARY TRACT including the BILE DUCTS and the GALLBLADDER.
Ducts that collect PANCREATIC JUICE from the PANCREAS and supply it to the DUODENUM.
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.
The major component (about 80%) of the PANCREAS composed of acinar functional units of tubular and spherical cells. The acinar cells synthesize and secrete several digestive enzymes such as TRYPSINOGEN; LIPASE; AMYLASE; and RIBONUCLEASE. Secretion from the exocrine pancreas drains into the pancreatic ductal system and empties into the DUODENUM.
An aminobenzoic acid isomer that combines with pteridine and GLUTAMIC ACID to form FOLIC ACID. The fact that 4-aminobenzoic acid absorbs light throughout the UVB range has also resulted in its use as an ingredient in SUNSCREENS.
A true cyst of the PANCREAS, distinguished from the much more common PANCREATIC PSEUDOCYST by possessing a lining of mucous EPITHELIUM. Pancreatic cysts are categorized as congenital, retention, neoplastic, parasitic, enterogenous, or dermoid. Congenital cysts occur more frequently as solitary cysts but may be multiple. Retention cysts are gross enlargements of PANCREATIC DUCTS secondary to ductal obstruction. (From Bockus Gastroenterology, 4th ed, p4145)
General term for inflammation of adipose tissue, usually of the skin, characterized by reddened subcutaneous nodules.
A peptide hormone of about 27 amino acids from the duodenal mucosa that activates pancreatic secretion and lowers the blood sugar level. (USAN and the USP Dictionary of Drug Names, 1994, p597)
Analyses for a specific enzyme activity, or of the level of a specific enzyme that is used to assess health and disease risk, for early detection of disease or disease prediction, diagnosis, and change in disease status.
Sialylated Lewis blood group carbohydrate antigen found in many adenocarcinomas of the digestive tract, especially pancreatic tumors.
An enzyme that hydrolyzes 1,6-alpha-glucosidic branch linkages in glycogen, amylopectin, and their beta-limit dextrins. It is distinguished from pullulanase (EC by its inability to attack pullulan and by the feeble action of alpha-limit dextrins. It is distinguished from amylopectin 6-glucanohydrolase (EC by its action on glycogen. With EC, it produces the activity called "debranching enzyme". EC
Derivatives of BENZOIC ACID that contain one or more amino groups attached to the benzene ring structure. Included under this heading are a broad variety of acid forms, salts, esters, and amides that include the aminobenzoate structure.
A malabsorption condition resulting from greater than 10% reduction in the secretion of pancreatic digestive enzymes (LIPASE; PROTEASES; and AMYLASE) by the EXOCRINE PANCREAS into the DUODENUM. This condition is often associated with CYSTIC FIBROSIS and with chronic PANCREATITIS.
Surgical removal of the pancreas. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Diseases which have one or more of the following characteristics: they are permanent, leave residual disability, are caused by nonreversible pathological alteration, require special training of the patient for rehabilitation, or may be expected to require a long period of supervision, observation, or care. (Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.
Ultrasonography of internal organs using an ultrasound transducer sometimes mounted on a fiberoptic endoscope. In endosonography the transducer converts electronic signals into acoustic pulses or continuous waves and acts also as a receiver to detect reflected pulses from within the organ. An audiovisual-electronic interface converts the detected or processed echo signals, which pass through the electronics of the instrument, into a form that the technologist can evaluate. The procedure should not be confused with ENDOSCOPY which employs a special instrument called an endoscope. The "endo-" of endosonography refers to the examination of tissue within hollow organs, with reference to the usual ultrasonography procedure which is performed externally or transcutaneously.
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.
The inactive proenzyme of trypsin secreted by the pancreas, activated in the duodenum via cleavage by enteropeptidase. (Stedman, 25th ed)

An imaging test of the BILIARY TRACT in which a contrast dye (RADIOPAQUE MEDIA) is injected into the BILE DUCT and x-ray pictures are taken.
Carcinoma that arises from the PANCREATIC DUCTS. It accounts for the majority of cancers derived from the PANCREAS.
The shortest and widest portion of the SMALL INTESTINE adjacent to the PYLORUS of the STOMACH. It is named for having the length equal to about the width of 12 fingers.
An enzyme of the hydrolase class that catalyzes the reaction of triacylglycerol and water to yield diacylglycerol and a fatty acid anion. It is produced by glands on the tongue and by the pancreas and initiates the digestion of dietary fats. (From Dorland, 27th ed) EC

A chloride channel that regulates secretion in many exocrine tissues. Abnormalities in the CFTR gene have been shown to cause cystic fibrosis. (Hum Genet 1994;93(4):364-8)
An autosomal recessive genetic disease of the EXOCRINE GLANDS. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRANSMEMBRANE CONDUCTANCE REGULATOR expressed in several organs including the LUNG, the PANCREAS, the BILIARY SYSTEM, and the SWEAT GLANDS. Cystic fibrosis is characterized by epithelial secretory dysfunction associated with ductal obstruction resulting in AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION; chronic RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS; PANCREATIC INSUFFICIENCY; maldigestion; salt depletion; and HEAT PROSTRATION.
A primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. The disease is often progressive and fatal. It is characterized by impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug alcohol, use of alcohol despite adverse consequences, and distortions in thinking, most notably denial. Each of these symptoms may be continuous or periodic.

Rational sequence of tests for pancreatic function. (1/711)

Of 144 patients with suspected pancreatic disease in whom a 75Se-selenomethionine scan was performed, endoscopic retrograde pancreatography (ERP) was successful in 108 (75%). The final diagnosis is known in 100 patients and has been compared with scan and ERP findings. A normal scan reliably indicated a normal pancreas, but the scan was falsely abnormal in 30%. ERP distinguished between carcinoma and chronic pancreatitis in 84% of cases but was falsely normal in five patients with pancreatic disease. In extrahepatic biliary disease both tests tended to give falsely abnormal results. A sequence of tests to provide a rapid and reliable assessment of pancreatic function should be a radio-isotope scan, followed by ERP if the results of the scan are abnormal, and a Lundh test if the scan is abnormal but the findings on ERP are normal.  (+info)

Urinary outputs of oxalate, calcium, and magnesium in children with intestinal disorders. Potential cause of renal calculi. (2/711)

24-hour urinary outputs of oxalate, calcium, and magnesium have been determined in a total of 62 children aged 3 months to 17 years who fell into the following groups: (i) 16 normal controls, (ii) 3 with primary hyperoxaluria, (iii) 9 with small and/or large intestinal resections, (iv) 9 with untreated coeliac disease, (v) 5 with pancreatic dysfunction, and (vi) a miscellaneous group of 20 children with a variety of intestinal disorders. Taken as a whole, 58% of patients with intestinal disorders had hyperoxaluria, and of these 7% had urinary outputs of oxalate which fell within the range seen in primary hyperoxaluria. The proportion of children with hyperoxaluria in the different diagnostic groups was as follows: intestinal resections (78%), coeliac disease (67%), pancreatic dysfunction (80%), and miscellaneous (45%). 35% of the patients with hyperoxaluria had hypercalciuria, whereas magnesium excretion was normal in all subjects studied. In 2 patients treatment of the underlying condition was accompanied by a return of oxalate excretion to normal. These results indicate that hyperoxaluria and hypercalciuria are common in children with a variety of intestinal disorders, and that such children may be at risk of developing renal calculi without early diagnosis and treatment.  (+info)

Pancreatectomy for chronic pancreatitis. (3/711)

Of one hundred and forty-nine patients (101 male and 48 female) 4-67 years of age, 117 were alcoholics and underwent pancreatectomy because of episodic or continuous abdominal pain or complications or chronic pancreatitis. Nineteen patients underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy, seventy-seven 80-95% distal resection, anf fifty-three 40-80% distal pancreatic resection. There were 3 operative death and 30 late deaths 6 months to 11 years post pancreatectomy. Twenty-one patients were lost to followup, 1 to 11 years post pancreatectomy. Ninety-five patients are known to be alive, 4 of whom are institutionalized. Indications for pancreatectomy in addition to abdominal pain include recurrent or multiple pseudocysts, failure to relieve pain after decompression of a pseudocyst, pseudoaneurysm of the visceral arteries associated with a pseudocyst, recurrent attacks of pancreatitis unrelived by non-resective operations, duodenal stenosis and left side portal hypertension. The choice between pancreaticoduodenectomy or distal resection of 40-80% or 80-95% of the pancreas should be based on the principle site of inflammation whether proximal or distal in the gland, the size of the common bile duct, the ability to rule out carcinoma, and the anticipated deficits in exocrine and endocrine function. The risk of diabetes is very significant after 80-95% distal resection and of steatorrhea after pancreaticoduodenectomy. When the disease process can be encompassed by 40-80% distal pancreatectomy this is the procedure of choice.  (+info)

Distal pancreatectomy: indications and outcomes in 235 patients. (4/711)

OBJECTIVE: Distal pancreatectomy is performed for a variety of benign and malignant conditions. In recent years, significant improvements in perioperative results have been observed at high-volume centers after pancreaticoduodenectomy. Little data, however, are available concerning the current indications and outcomes after distal pancreatectomy. This single-institution experience reviews the recent indications, complications, and outcomes after distal pancreatectomy. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed of the hospital records of all patients undergoing distal pancreatectomy between January 1994 and December 1997, inclusive. RESULTS: The patient population (n = 235) had a mean age of 51 years, (range 1 month to 82 years); 43% were male and 84% white. The final diagnoses included chronic pancreatitis (24%), benign pancreatic cystadenoma (22%), pancreatic adenocarcinoma (18%), neuroendocrine tumor (14%), pancreatic pseudocyst (6%), cystadenocarcinoma (3%), and miscellaneous (13%). The level of resection was at or to the left of the superior mesenteric vein in 96% of patients. A splenectomy was performed in 84% and a cholecystectomy in 15% of patients. The median intraoperative blood loss was 450 ml, the median number of red blood cell units transfused was zero, and the median operative time was 4.3 hours. Two deaths occurred in the hospital or within 30 days of surgery for a perioperative mortality rate of 0.9%. The overall postoperative complication rate was 31%; the most common complications were new-onset insulin-dependent diabetes (8%), pancreatic fistula (5%), intraabdominal abscess (4%), small bowel obstruction (4%), and postoperative hemorrhage (4%). Fourteen patients (6%) required a second surgical procedure; the most common indication was postoperative bleeding. The median length of postoperative hospital stay was 10 days. Patients who underwent a distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy (n = 198) had a similar complication rate (30% vs. 29%), operative time (4.6 vs. 5.1 hours), and intraoperative blood loss (500 vs. 350 ml) and a shorter postoperative length of stay (13 vs. 21 days) than the patients who had splenic preservation (n = 37). CONCLUSIONS: This series represents the largest single-institution experience with distal pancreatectomy. These data demonstrate that elective distal pancreatectomy is associated with a mortality rate of <1%. These results demonstrate that, as with pancreaticoduodenectomy, distal pancreatectomy can be performed with minimal perioperative mortality and acceptable morbidity.  (+info)

Safety of pancreatic surgery in a small DGH. (5/711)

The Combined Gastroenterology Service at Scarborough Hospital has a particular interest in pancreatic disease. The claim that pancreatic surgery should only be performed in larger, specialised units prompted a review of our experience in a small district general hospital (DGH). The case notes of 63 patients who had undergone pancreatic surgery over a 7-year period were examined retrospectively. The 30-day mortality was 8%, while 14 complications were recorded. Of 16 patients with acute pancreatitis, three died before discharge and three had long-term complications. Five patients who underwent surgery for chronic pancreatitis were discharged safely. There were 11 curative and 29 palliative procedures for patients with malignant disease. Median survival was 8 months (range 1-32 months) and median hospital stay was 16.8 days (range 7-89 days). Successful pancreatic surgery can be performed safely in a DGH setting. Patient selection and expertise are more important than numbers.  (+info)

Exocrine pancreatic disorders in transsgenic mice expressing human keratin 8. (6/711)

Keratins K8 and K18 are the major components of the intermediate-filament cytoskeleton of simple epithelia. Increased levels of these keratins have been correlated with various tumor cell characteristics, including progression to malignancy, invasive behavior, and drug sensitivity, although a role for K8/K18 in tumorigenesis has not yet been demonstrated. To examine the function of these keratins, we generated mice expressing the human K8 (hk8) gene, which leads to a moderate keratin-content increase in their simple epithelia. These mice displayed progressive exocrine pancreas alterations, including dysplasia and loss of acinar architecture, redifferentiation of acinar to ductal cells, inflammation, fibrosis, and substitution of exocrine by adipose tissue, as well as increased cell proliferation and apoptosis. Histological changes were not observed in other simple epithelia, such as the liver. Electron microscopy showed that transgenic acinar cells have keratins organized in abundant filament bundles dispersed throughout the cytoplasm, in contrast to control acinar cells, which have scarce and apically concentrated filaments. The phenotype found was very similar to that reported for transgenic mice expressing a dominant-negative mutant TGF-beta type II receptor (TGFbetaRII mice). We show that these TGFbetaRII mutant mice also have elevated K8/K18 levels. These results indicate that simple epithelial keratins play a relevant role in the regulation of exocrine pancreas homeostasis and support the idea that disruption of mechanisms that normally regulate keratin expression in vivo could be related to inflammatory and neoplastic pancreatic disorders.  (+info)

Aspects of the epizootiology of pancreas disease in farmed Atlantic salmon Salmo salar in Ireland. (7/711)

A computerised database containing information on over 17.8 million salmon contained within 49 separate marine populations was used to study the epidemiology of pancreas disease (PD) in Ireland. Of the 43 recorded PD outbreaks, 57% occurred in the 3 mo period August to October inclusive (17 to 32 wk post-transfer). Analysis of variance of mortality rates during PD outbreaks occurring on 6 marine sites over a 5 yr period showed that mortality rates vary significantly between sites (p < 0.001) but not between years over this time period. The mortality rate during PD outbreaks ranged from 0.1 to 63%. Mortality rates were significantly higher when PD outbreaks occurred earlier in the year (y = -1.28x + 59, SE of b 0.33). The mean length of a PD outbreak was 112 d (SE = 7.7, n = 37). There was no correlation between PD mortality rate and smolt input weight, initial stocking density and transfer mortality.  (+info)

Clinical significance of magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography for the diagnosis of cystic tumor of the pancreas compared with endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and computed tomography. (8/711)

BACKGROUND: Cystic tumor of the pancreas has been investigated by a variety of imaging techniques. Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is being widely used as a non-invasive diagnostic modality for investigation of the biliary tree and pancreatic duct system. The purpose of this study was to compare MRCP images with those of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and computed tomography (CT) in order to clarify the diagnostic efficacy of MRCP for cystic tumor of the pancreas. METHODS: We retrospectively studied 15 patients with cystic tumor of the pancreas that had been surgically resected and histopathologically confirmed. There were five cases of intraductal papillary adenocarcinoma, five of intraductal papillary adenoma, two of serous cyst adenoma, two of retention cyst associated with invasive ductal adenocarcinoma and one of solid cystic tumor. RESULTS: In all cases MRCP correctly identified the main pancreatic duct (MPD) and showed the entire cystic tumor and the communication between the tumor and the MPD. On the other hand, the detection rate by ERCP of the cystic tumor and the communication between the cystic tumor and the MPD was only 60%. Although the detection rates by CT for the septum and solid components inside the cystic tumor were 100 and 90.0%, respectively, those of MRCP for each were 58.3 and 20.0%. CONCLUSION: MRCP is capable of providing diagnostic information superior to ERCP for the diagnosis of cystic tumor of the pancreas. Although MRCP may provide complementary information about the whole lesion of interest, the characteristic internal features of cystic tumor of the pancrease should be carefully diagnosed in combination with CT.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - An evaluation of angiography, 75Se-methionine scintigraphy and the Lundh test in the diagnosis of pancreatic disease. AU - Kugelberg, C.. AU - Ihse, I.. AU - Cederquist, E.. AU - Larsson, I.. AU - Tylen, Ulf. PY - 1977. Y1 - 1977. N2 - In order to assess accuracy and consistency of diagnostic opinion in suspected pancreatic disease, using available diagnostic procedures 74 patients, subjected to selective angiography, pancreatic function test (Lundh test), and scintigraphy, were studied retrospectively. The patients were divided into four diagnostic subgroups, three of which represented defined pancreatic disease, the fourth serving as a control group since such disease could be excluded. The primary diagnostic results were compared. After a stipulated minimum of six months the angiographic films and scintigraphic recordings were reappraised in a randomized manner without access to clinical data. The evaluations thus achieved were compared to those delivered primarily. The ...
This article focuses on a study related to MRCP and for the investigation of pancreaticobiliary disease. The study aims to compare and contrast the use of MRCP and ERCP in pancreaticobiliary (PB) disease at the research centre in consecutive patients over a 20 months period. 30% of patients with suspected PB disease have initial MRCP rather than ERCP. Agreement between procedures is moderate at best for biliary disease and excellent for pancreatic disease. MRCP and ERCP are used synergistically at the research centre the former reducing the burden on the latter ...
Elastase 1 and immunoreactive trypsin were assessed by a RIA technique in the sera of 29 control subjects, 24 pancreatic cancer patients, 22 patients with chronic pancreatitis and 31 with extra-pancreatic diseases to ascertain and compare their usefulness in chronic pancreatic disease diagnosis. Increased levels of elastase 1 were detected in 60.9% of pancreatic cancer and in 61.1% of chronic pancreatitis patients; low values were found in only two subjects with pancreatic disease. A close correlation between the two enzymes was found in patients suffering from pancreatic cancer and chronic pancreatitis. These data suggest that serum elastase 1, as well as immunoreactive trypsin, is of limited value in chronic pancreatic disease diagnosis; increased levels of the two enzymes always occur simultaneously; low immunoreactive trypsin values together with normal elastase 1 serum levels are detectable in a number of patients with chronic pancreatitis and severe exocrine insufficiency.. ...

RESULTS We identified 31,789 new diagnoses of adult-onset diabetes. Diabetes following pancreatic disease (2.59 [95% CI 2.38-2.81] per 100,000 person-years) was more common than type 1 diabetes (1.64 [1.47-1.82]; P , 0.001). The 559 cases of diabetes following pancreatic disease were mostly classified by clinicians as type 2 diabetes (87.8%) and uncommonly as diabetes of the exocrine pancreas (2.7%). Diabetes following pancreatic disease was diagnosed at a median age of 59 years and BMI of 29.2 kg/m2. Diabetes following pancreatic disease was associated with poor glycemic control (adjusted odds ratio, 1.7 [1.3-2.2]; P , 0.001) compared with type 2 diabetes. Insulin use within 5 years was 4.1% (3.8-4.4) with type 2 diabetes, 20.9% (14.6-28.9) with diabetes following acute pancreatitis, and 45.8% (34.2-57.9) with diabetes following chronic pancreatic disease. ...

The diagnosis of acute or chronic disease of the pancreas can be one of the more difficult tasks of the internist or gastroenterologist. Acute pancreatic disease must be differentiated from a variety of intra-abdominal catastrophes, many of which require prompt laparotomy if the patient is to have the best chance of survival. Most surgeons and physicians agree that acute pancreatitis, in the absence of complicating biliary tract disease, is best managed conservatively (1). Chronic pancreatitis often masquerades as psychoneurosis, drug addiction, or chronic alcoholism, while pancreatic carcinoma is usually beyond surgical cure when diagnosed..

Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths in the European Union and in the USA, but little is known about its genetic susceptibility. The PANcreatic Disease ReseArch (PANDoRA) consortium was established to unite the efforts of different research groups; its aim is to create a large bio-database to uncover new genetic factors for pancreatic cancer risk, response to treatment, and patient survival. So far 2220 cases of pancreatic adenocarcinoma, a smaller number of cases of endocrine pancreatic tumours (n=86), chronic pancreatitis (n=272) and 3847 healthy controls have been collected. As a collective effort of the consortium, SNPs associated with pancreatic adenocarcinoma risk from a genome-wide association study performed in Caucasians were replicated. The possibility that the same genetic polymorphisms may influence patient survival as well was also addressed. This collective effort is particularly important for pancreatic cancer because it is a relatively rare disease for which

Tuberculosis is a major public health problem in developing countries. Though TB commonly occurs in lung, primary abdominal TB is not uncommon, incidence ranging from 0.58% to 12% [1]. But contrary to belief, only 6-38% of patient with active pulmonary TB have abdominal TB [2]. TB does easily disseminate to the gastrointestinal tract, liver, spleen and mesenteric lymph nodes; however the involvement of pancreas is rare. The first report pancreatic TB mimicking cancer was reported by Auerbach in 1944. In his series of 1656 autopsies of tuberculous patients, only 14 cases had direct pancreatic involvement that may have mimicked neoplasia [3]. Since then, most of the medical literature on this rare disease is limited to case reports or small case series. There have been reported incidents in the past where extensive surgeries have been performed for high suspicion of periampullary carcinomas which later turned out to be tuberculosis of the pancreas [4]. Feng Xia et al. have summarized ...

The CA 19-9 assay detects a carbohydrate antigen on multiple protein carriers, some of which may be preferential carriers of the antigen in cancer. We tested the hypothesis that the measurement of the CA 19-9 antigen on individual proteins could improve performance over the standard CA 19-9 assay. We used antibody arrays to measure the levels of the CA 19-9 antigen on multiple proteins in serum or plasma samples from patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma or pancreatitis. Sample sets from three different institutions were examined, comprising 531 individual samples. The measurement of the CA 19-9 antigen on any individual protein did not improve upon the performance of the standard CA 19-9 assay (82% sensitivity at 75% specificity for early-stage cancer), owing to diversity among patients in their CA 19-9 protein carriers. However, a subset of cancer patients with no elevation in the standard CA 19-9 assay showed elevations of the CA 19-9 antigen specifically on the proteins MUC5AC or MUC16 in ...

AU - Hiraoka, Nobuyoshi. PY - 2010/10/1. Y1 - 2010/10/1. N2 - Serous cystic neoplasm (SCN) of the pancreas is a benign epithelial neoplasm, except in extremely rare malignant cases. Development of SCN in tissues other than the pancreas has been never reported. Here we present the first reported case of SCN in an intrapancreatic accessory spleen (IPAS). A 54-year-old female patient with von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome was found to have pancreatic tail mass. Pathologically the 25-mm solid mass was an IPAS showing proliferation of clear cuboidal tumor cells without atypia, forming numerous small cysts. The tumor cells were rich in cytoplasmic glycogen and distributed in the splenic tissue almost diffusely. Immunohistochemically, tumor cells were positive for cytokeratins, MUC6, and neuron-specific enolase, and negative ...

N2 - Pancreatic abscess continues to be a lethal complication of acute pancreatitis, with mortality rates of 40 percent in recent surgical series. A major factor contributing to this high mortality has been delay in diagnosis. When combined with diagnostic needle aspiration, computerized tomographic scanning has greatly enhanced the early detection of pancreatic abscesses. In a 4 year period at our institutions, 21 patients with proved pancreatic abscesses were evaluated early in their clinical course by computerized tomography. On follow-up ranging from 7 months to 3 1 2, years, there were only four deaths for a mortality rate of 19 percent. Many of the surviving patients had a long and ...

We have recently summarized the evidence that the amylase of the serum is of heterogenous origin (1). Studies in this laboratory on the regulation of blood amylase levels (2, 3) have shown that [1] normal blood amylase is controlled in part at extrapancreatic sites, [2] blood amylase is lowered in states of increased carbohydrate utilization, and [3] the amylase responses to alterations of carbohydrate metabolism are markedly altered by liver disease but unaffected by total pancreatectomy. These findings led to the conclusion that the liver contributes to the blood amylase level and is an important site of regulation. Similar conclusions ...

  • Chronic pancreatitis is also a well known risk factor for developing pancreatic cancer with a 40% lifetime risk of this cancer in patients with hereditary pancreatitis syndromes. (
  • Patients with three or more first-degree relatives with pancreatic cancer have a 14 to 32-fold increased risk of developing pancreatic cancer. (
  • We need to stratify those patients with precursor lesions at high-risk of developing pancreatic cancer. (
  • In fact, studies have shown that those with gum disease may be more susceptible to developing pancreatic cancer. (
  • Much of our work is focused on translational research evaluating markers and marker technologies that can help screen patients with an increased risk of developing pancreatic cancer. (
  • Thus, marker efforts have been focused mostly on identifying markers of advanced precancerous neoplasia (PanINs and IPMNs) that could improve our ability to effectively screen patients at risk of developing pancreatic cancer. (
  • This can eventually cause the teeth to fall out, and as suggested by experts, may even have an effect on your likelihood of developing pancreatic cancer. (
  • In a large multicentric study of 1,028 pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma cases and 2,257 controls in the context of the PANcreatic Disease ReseArch (PANDoRA) consortium, we investigated the suggested association with increased risk for carriers of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) determining the A or B allele in comparison with the O allele, which encodes for a non-functional enzyme. (
  • The latter applies particularly for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), the most common form of the disease. (
  • Objective The aggressive basal-like molecular subtype of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) harbours a ΔNp63 (p40) gene expression signature reminiscent of a basal cell type. (
  • The goal of screening is to detect resectable stage 1 pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, and high-risk precursor neoplasms such as intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) with high-grade dysplasia and some enlarged pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasias. (
  • Most pancreatic cancers are characterized as ductal adenocarcinoma and thus represent malignancy of the exocrine pancreas whereas a minority represent neuroendocrine tumors. (
  • Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) may arise from #precursor lesions , termed pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasias ( PanINs ) or from cystic neoplasms such as intraductal papillary mucinous ( # IPMN ) and mucinous cystic neoplasms ( # MCN ). (

  • Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related mortality in the European Union and in the USA, with a 5-year survival of less than 5% ( 1 ). (
  • This study demonstrates that pancreatic cancer is better considered as four separate diseases, with different survival rates, treatments and underlying genetics. (
  • Pancreatic cancer is a highly fatal disease with less than a 10% of 5-year #survival rate. (
  • The key to improving survival of pancreatic cancer rests upon early detection of this neoplasm when surgery is possible and hence, it is still a potentially curable stage. (
  • One such disease is pancreatic cancer, an extremely dangerous condition with a notoriously low survival rate. (
  • More recently, some centers have utilized very specific patient selection to perform resection of oligometastatic disease with reported improvement in survival - with many centers using response to systemic therapy as a sign of favorable biology. (
  • Despite improvements in surgical technique and chemotherapy regimens, the 5-year relative survival for pancreatic cancer has only increased from 3% to 9% over the last 35 years [ 1 , 2 ] . (
  • Surgical resection of oligometastatic disease in pancreatic cancer is generally not associated with prolonged survival. (
  • Adverse events, disease-free survival and overall survival were assessed. (
  • Oettle and colleagues have shown that adjuvant chemotherapy with gemcitabine after macroscopic complete resection of pancreatic cancer prolongs disease free and overall survival compared to observation alone [ 12 ]. (
  • Data from an official monitoring program were used to analyze the emergence of infectious pancreatic necrosis virus in Scottish salmon farms from 1996 to 2001. (

  • Obesity is pervasive in western society, and its systemic effects extend to pancreatic disease. (
  • This milieu in turn generates a systemic proinflammatory state, the end results of which have been well documented in the pathogenesis of disease processes such as atherosclerosis (63) and NASH (39). (
  • 7. Absence of current severe systemic disease (including, but not limited to: coronary artery disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, cancer, and chronic renal disease). (
  • As a result of rapid economic, social, and cultural changes, the prevalence of obesity in Afghanistan is increasing and dietary habits are shifting from the traditional pattern to a pattern more typical of industrialized countries, with concomitant increases in the incidence of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). (
  • Trends for Alzheimer's disease and other dementias were informed by meta-regression of prevalence studies. (
  • We also conducted an international multicenter study that compared endoscopic ultrasound-guided pancreatic duct drainage with enteroscopy-assisted endoscopic retrograde pancreatography following Whipple surgery. (
  • The common bile duct merges with the pancreatic duct of Wirsung to form a common channel that exits through the ampulla into the duodenum. (
  • The various types of bile duct diseases include gallstones in the bile duct or choledocholithiasis, narrowing of the bile duct which prevents draining of the bile, bile duct infection, and cyst formation. (
  • Yellowing of the skin and eyes in cases of bile duct blockage and gallbladder disease. (
  • This test can identify problems in your bile duct or pancreatic duct by using a flexible tube attached to a camera and light called an endoscope. (
  • Inappropriate" expression of class II major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules by target cells has been found in all organ-specific autoimmune diseases so far examined for the presence of this phenomenon. (
  • Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition that prevents proper nutrient absorption and the digestion of gluten . (
  • If you have another autoimmune disorder, you're also more likely to develop celiac disease. (
  • In addition, many people with celiac disease, including silent or asymptomatic celiac disease, may develop other autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis ,   if they continue to consume gluten. (
  • After all these years I have realized as I watched all my friends become sick or almost die and even die from cancer, heart disease, liver problems, autoimmune diseases etc., the common link appeared to be alcohol consumption. (
