Study Design: Outcomes of 100 patients who underwent pancreatectomy with islet isolation between 2005 and 2012 were assessed by etiology (alcoholic pancreatitis [AP] 30%, and nonalcoholic pancreatitis [NAP] 70%). Insulin requirement, Short Form-36, and McGill Pain Questionnaires were assessed. Data were analyzed using SASv9.2. Results: Of the 100 patients, isolation was unsuccessful in 9 patients due to fibrosis. Alcoholic pancreatitis was associated ...
Alcoholic pancreatitis continues to stir up controversy. One of the most debated points is whether from onset it is a chronic disease or whether it progresses to a chronic form after repeated episodes of acute pancreatitis. Histological studies on patients with alcoholic pancreatitis have shown that the disease is chronic from onset and that alcoholic acute pancreatitis occurs in a pancreas already damaged by chronic lesions. Genetic factors may also play a role in the pathogenesis of alcoholic disease. The incidence of chronic alcoholic pancreatitis seems to have decreased in the last twenty years. Finally, recent therapeutic studies which have shown medical or surgical approaches capable of reducing the pain episodes in chronic pancreatitis patients will be described.

The first patient, a 52-year-old man with no symptoms, underwent chest CT scan for a medical check-up and was revealed to have left small pleural effusion. A month later, he suddenly experienced severe cough and back pain. The immediate CT scan showed massive pleural effusion and mediastinal pseudocyst, and the amylase level in the aspirated pleural effusion proved to be elevated. He was successfully treated with medication and drainage of the effusion. The second patient, a 39-year-old woman, underwent CT scan for a medical check-up, and it disclosed that she had a small pleural ...
Chronic pancreatitis (CP) is a recurring inflammatory disorder of the pancreas with alcohol misuse being the most predominant risk factor. Whereas in patients without alcohol misuse (non-alcoholic CP, NACP) several genetic variants have been captured as risk factors, genetic associations in alcoholic CP (ACP) are rare. This is an interesting finding since only a small percentage of alcohol misuser develops ACP indicating further etiological factors. Recently, a genome-wide association study (GWAs) identified common variants in the PRSS1- and the CLDN2-MORC4 locus to be associated with CP. This finding was replicated in a large European cohort in that association was strongest in the ACP group and in Japanese and Indian CP patients. Functional studies demonstrated that the PRSS1 promoter variant rs4726576 (c.-204C,A) reduces transcription which results in lower intra-pancreatic trypsinogen levels. The mechanism of action of the CLDN2-MORC4 risk variants still remains to some extent unclear ...
OBJECTIVE: To examine lifetime drinking patterns in men and women with alcohol-induced pancreatitis (AIP) in comparison with patients with alcoholic use disorder (AUD) without pancreatic disease. METHODS: Alcohol consumption patterns were assessed using a validated questionnaire, the Lifetime Drinking History (LDH), during an outpatient visit. Patients diagnosed with AIP were matched for gender and age (+/- 5 years) with patients with AUD in addiction treatment. RESULTS: A total of 45 patients with AIP (35 males, 10 females) and 45 AUD patients were included. Alcohol consumption patterns were not significantly different between males and females with AIP and those with history of acute AIP and chronic pancreatitis (CP). Alcohol consumption patterns of AIP and AUD patients were similar in terms of onset age and duration of alcohol consumption, lifetime alcohol intake and drinks per drinking day. A higher proportion of binge drinking was found among patients with AUD than those with AIP (median ...

Methods: A 69-year-old man with chronic alcoholic pancreatitis initially presented with nausea, vomiting, and colicky RUQ pain. CTA abdomen/pelvis revealed pancreatic head enlargement and CBD dilatation with no evidence of HPA (CT Figure A). ERCP revealed severe CBD stricture, prompting sphincterotomy and dilation with placement of two plastic stents in the CBD (Endo Figure A). Five months later, he returned with two days of nausea and hematemesis. ERCP revealed HB. Extraction of the first stent resulted in brisk bright red blood from the ampulla, and immediate stent replacement tamponade the bleeding (Endo Figure B). CTA abdomen/pelvis revealed appropriately placed biliary stents adjacent to a right HPA (CT Figure B), which was treated with coil embolization (Angiogram Figure A). Two months later, both stents were extracted and replaced with a single, covered metal stent. Four months after that, due to proximal migration, the metal stent was extracted and replaced with two plastic stents (Endo ...

BACKGROUND: Cannabis is the most commonly and widely used illicit drug in the world and is also the most commonly used drug of abuse in alcohol drinkers. Experimental studies have shown conflicting results of the effects of cannabis on the severity of acute pancreatitis (AP). The purpose of this study is to ascertain the clinical effects of simultaneous alcohol and cannabis use on severity at presentation and outcomes of acute alcoholic pancreatitis (AAP). METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted on the patients discharged with principle or secondary diagnosis of AP using ICD-9 & ICD-10 codes during the time period from January 2006 to December 2015 at a large community-based hospital in Central Georgia ...
In rodents and humans, alcohol exposure has been shown to predispose the pancreas to cholinergic or viral induction of pancreatitis. We previously developed a rodent model in which exposure to an ethanol (EtOH) diet, followed by carbachol (Cch) stimulation, redirects exocytosis from the apical to the basolateral plasma membrane of acinar cells, resulting in ectopic zymogen enzyme activation and pancreatitis. This redirection of exocytosis involves a soluble NSF attachment receptor (SNARE) complex consisting of syntaxin-4 and synapse-associated protein of 23 kDa (SNAP-23). Here, we investigated the role of the zymogen granule (ZG) SNARE vesicle-associated membrane protein 8 (VAMP8) in mediating basolateral exocytosis. In WT mice, in vitro EtOH exposure or EtOH diet reduced Cch-stimulated amylase release by redirecting apical exocytosis to the basolateral membrane, leading to alcoholic pancreatitis. Further reduction of zymogen secretion, caused by blockade of both apical and basolateral ...
Therefore, it is also possible to modify our algorithm to study the coupling mechanisms between exocytosis and endocytosis in the future. Combinatorial microscopy. Google Scholar Employing FM fluorescence imaging, basolateral exocytosis was observed in dispersed rat pancreatic acini after supramaximal CCK or carbachol stimulation; and more remarkably, also after treatment with clinically-relevant concentrations of alcohol and putative alcohol metabolites followed by physiologic CCK or carbachol stimulation 8, 9, 28thus simulating alcoholic pancreatitis.

As advances in understanding define the multiple aetiologies of chronic pancreatitis the entity of autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) has been increasingly recognised. The association with Sjogrens syndrome, primary biliary cirrhosis, and sclerosing cholangitis suggests it may be an autoimmune disease directed against a target antigen common to salivary glands, pancreas, and liver. Early work showed antibodies to carbonic anhydrase (CA) I and II, but this antigen is found in all tissues and does not explain the localisation of damage to the pancreas. The current study by Hishimori et al shows that the key antigen may be CA IV, found in pancreatic ductal cells as well as bilary, renal, and intestinal epithelia. Using a truncated and, hence, soluble CA IV antigen allowed the authors to perform an ELISA assay which showed 40% of cases with definite AIP and 40% of those with Sjogrens had antibodies to CA IV but no controls. Antibodies were found in just 13% and 7% of cases with alcoholic pancreatitis ...

This partly reflects an increase in alcoholic pancreatitis, related to increasing use of alcohol in the community. Although an increase in the occurrence of gall stones may have also contributed to the rise. Death rates in the first month after admission were 30 times higher than in the general population of the same age. Overall, pancreatitis remains a disease with a poor prognosis. Death rates have not improved since the 1970s because no major innovations in treatment have been introduced, the authors conclude conclude. ...

This study has demonstrated the importance of NOME in mediating acute pancreatic toxicity and inflammation induced by alcohol, damage arising primarily from Ca2+-dependent mitochondrial dysfunction in PACs. Many theories have been proposed to explain the detrimental effects of alcohol in AP,22 ,23 including direct actions on Ca2+-release mechanisms,24 OME-sensitised mitochondrial dysfunction25 and formation of toxic FAEEs.26 The association between alcohol and fat in pancreatic damage is particularly intriguing; diets rich in corn oil and alcohol induce chronic pancreatic injury in rats.24 Epidemiological studies suggest that high fat diets may be linked to development of acute and chronic alcoholic pancreatitis,27 while hypertriglyceridaemia is an independent risk factor for both.28 The present data highlight the importance of NOME in mediating acute PAC damage leading to AP. It is likely that under conditions of OME inhibition, available alcohol and fatty acid from triglyceride hydrolysis are ...

Chronic pancreatitis is defined as a continuing inflammatory disease of the pancreas characterized by irreversible morphologic changes that typically cause pain and/or permanent loss of function. The annual incidence of chronic pancreatitis in the Unites States is 5-12 per 100,000 and prevalence of 50 per 100,000 persons though the incidence is rising over time . The most common symptoms related to chronic pancreatitis include steatorrhea and abdominal pain. Pain with chronic pancreatitis can be severe and debilitating and opioid pain medications are frequently utilized in the management of these symptoms .. A number of chronic malabsorptive disorders, including Crohns disease, celiac disease, and cystic fibrosis are known to be associated with decreased bone mineral density. Similarly, there is increasing data supporting low bone mineral density (osteopenia and osteoporosis) in patients with chronic pancreatitis, though the exact mechanisms remain unclear.. A meta-analysis of 11 observational ...
Chronic pancreatitis is a persistent inflammation of the pancreas that in the long run can cause irreparable damage. The major causes of chronic pancreatitis are genetics, alcohol toxicity and other conditions that might damage or obstruct the pancreas. This inflammation can cause pain that often is severe and leaves patients socially isolated and unable to perform their jobs. Unfortunately, treatment options are scarce, and often strong morphine-like pain medications are needed. Patients might benefit from alternative medication without the adverse effects associated with morphine-like medication. This review summarises the evidence from randomised trials on the effects of antioxidants in chronic pancreatitis. Antioxidants are substances that prevent damage to cells caused by toxic byproducts of oxygen in the body. Levels of these byproducts are increased in chronic pancreatitis. Antioxidants constitute a large group that contains many natural and man-made products. Examples include vitamin C, ...

Idiopathic acute pancreatitis is common. Recent evidence suggests that biliary sludge may be the etiology in many patients with this disorder. In this case-control study, admission ultrasound examinations of patients with idiopathic pancreatitis, patients with acute alcohol-associated pancreatitis and a control group were compared. Biliary sludge was found in seven of 21 patients (33%) with idiopathic pancreatitis, two of 25 (8%) with acute alcohol-associated pancreatitis and one of 63 controls (1.6%). Comparison of idiopathic pancreatitis patients with both acute alcohol-associated pancreatitis patients and controls for the presence of sludge revealed odds ratios of 31.0 (95% CI 3.5 to 273) and 5.8 (95% CI 1.1 to 32.0), respectively. Also observed was a trend towards higher levels of liver enzymes, bilirubin and amylase in patients with idiopathic pancreatitis who had sludge identified. This study provides further evidence linking biliary sludge with a significant proportion of
MFG-E8 was first identified in the process of phagocytic clearance of apoptotic cells [13]. More recently, it has been shown that MFG-E8 deficient mice show severe inflammatory imbalances, and an MFG-E8-mediated potential therapeutic benefit is evident in experimental inflammatory conditions [18, 20, 22-25, 29-32]. Previous studies have elucidated the role of MFG-E8 in diverse neoplastic and acute inflammatory diseases, yet this is the first study to investigate MFG-E8 expression in chronic pancreatitis.. In the present study, we demonstrated for the first time that MFG-E8 is significantly up-regulated in patients with chronic pancreatitis. Interestingly, and in contrast to acute inflammatory diseases where MFG-E8 is under-expressed in the acute phase and recombinant MFG-E8 seems beneficial, MFG-E8 expression in chronic pancreatitis is significantly higher than in normal pancreatic tissue. Our analysis further revealed that this overexpression is directly related to the presence of pain and ...

Liver cancer is the fifth most commonly diagnosed and the second most lethal malignancies worldwide, in which hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) represents the majority subtype. High mortality rate of HCC is due to lack of effective treatments and early detection methods. Activation of cadherin-17 (CDH17)/β-catenin axis is found by our team in HCC and targeting components of this axis associated with anti-tumorigenesis. With limited knowledge on this axis in HCC, I plan to study molecules related to this axis as a way to uncover the cellular mechanism of this axis in liver tumorigenesis. Gene profiling data was re-analyzed to search for CDH17-associated genes in HCC clinical samples. The patient cohort was segregated into CDH17-high and CDH17-low group according to tumor/adjacent non-tumor expression ratio of CDH17. Serine peptidase inhibitor, Kazal type 1 (SPINK1) was found highly expressed in CDH17-high cases and its over-expression accounted for 73 % of total studied cases. Gene manipulation and ...

In Japan, a nationwide survey was conducted to clarify the epidemiological features of patients with CP (51). As it was a cross-sectional nationwide survey without healthy controls, it was not estimated whether smoking alone constituted a risk for the onset of CP. However the survey clearly showed that smoking tobacco increased the occurrence of clinical features associated with the disease. In this study, the incidence of comorbidity with diabetes mellitus and pancreatic calcifications increased significantly in the never drinking but ever smoking CP patients when compared to the neither drinking nor smoking CP patients. These findings imply that smoking poses a risk for developing CP complications independently of alcohol consumption. Collectively, evidence from these clinical studies supports a dose-dependent association between smoking and chronic pancreatitis; however, a similar association with acute pancreatitis (AP) has also been revealed (18, 108, 126). In a Danish study with a mean ...

I am 28 years old and am suffering from chronic pancreatitis. I used to have upper abdomen pain with vomiting since childhood but the problem has become serious over the last few months requiring admission to 4 hospitals. I have lost 10 kilos of weight. A CT scan and MRI indicated that I have |b|calcification in the parenchyma region of pancreas|/b|. According the doctors the stones are not big enough for an operation or ERCP for ductal clearance. Only one doctor told me that he will do an ERCP for clearing the duct and treatment will be long, last for 2 years and I will have to come back to him every 6 months. I am following a very low fat diet and regularly taking the medicine prescribed by doctors (enzyme supplement and pantocid) but nothing seems to help the problem. I have a lot of discomfort in the upper abdomen. There is a persistent feeling of lumpiness. My career is at stake. What is the cure for this problem? How can the conditon be handled? If the stones are small then why has the problem
