• 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.

  • 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)
