This study’s aim is to investigate the efficiency of SuPAR serum levels in acute pancreatitis (AP) patients in determining the severity of disease. Materials and methods: This prospective research involves patients who arrived at the emergency service, were over 18 years old, had nontraumatic abdominal pain and diagnosis of AP, and agreed to join the study. Demographic characteristics, contact information, laboratory and imaging test parameters, Ranson’s criteria, the Balthazar Severity Index, the Rapid Acute Physiologic Score (RAPS), and the modified Glasgow (Imrie) score of all patients were recorded....

Emodin attenuated severe acute pancreatitis via the P2X ligand‑gated ion channel 7/NOD‑like receptor protein 3 signaling pathway. Oncol Rep. 2018 Nov 02;: Authors: Zhang Q, Tao X, Xia S, Qu J, Song H, Liu J, Li H, Shang D Abstract Acute pancreatitis (AP) is an aseptic inflammation characterized with an annual incidence rate, and ~20% patients progressing to severe AP (SAP) with a high mortality rate. Although Qingyi decoction has been frequently used for SAP treatment over the past 3 decades in clinic, the actual mechanism of its protective effects remains unknown. As the major activ...

Authors: Qiu L, Zhou Y, Yu Q, Yu J, Li Q, Sun R Abstract Early stratification of the severity of acute pancreatitis (AP) is clinically important. Regulatory B cells have been found to be associated with disease activity of autoimmune diseases. However, the role of Regulatory B cells in AP remains unknown. We investigate the dynamic longitudinal changes in circulating IL-10-producing B cells (B10) and memory CD19+CD24hiCD27hi cells in patients with AP to evaluate their prediction utility for AP severity. B10, CD19+CD24hiCD27hi cells, inflammatory markers and cytokines were detected in patients with AP immediately af...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has a 5-year survival rate of only 8% and is estimated to be the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths by 2021. Prior convention held that screening for PDAC would not be beneficial; however, a deeper understanding of the carcinogenesis pathway supports a potential window of opportunity among the target population. Screening for PDAC is not a standard practice among the general population because of its low incidence. However, screening may be beneficial for individuals with familial history, chronic diseases with genetic predispositions, or inherited cancer syndromes, such a...

Advances in the past two decades have resulted in the recognition of several tumefactive pancreatic lesions that, on histologic evaluation, show a varying combination of inflammation and fibrosis. Autoimmune pancreatitis, the prototypic tumefactive pancreatic fibroinflammatory lesion, is composed of two distinct diseases, type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis and the less common type 2 autoimmune pancreatitis. Although designated as autoimmune pancreatitis, the two diseases show little morphologic or pathogenic overlap.

Conclusions Hypertriglyceridemia-associated DIAP is a rare phenomenon, and the current systematic review provides a summary of drugs that have been implicated in this phenomenon, which allow physicians to be oriented about this adverse effect when these drugs are used.

Conclusions The increased frequency of pancreatic head swelling in type 1 AIP patients exhibiting pancreatic stones indicated a propensity for pancreatic juice stasis with subsequent stone development and pancreatic dysfunction occurring over longer periods of disease duration.

Conclusions Antecedent ERCP does not appear to have a deleterious impact on islet cell yield during TPIAT. Additional multicenter data are needed to more clearly determine the impact of ERCP in this context.

Conclusions Interleukin-21 is transiently elevated in SAP compared with the mild/moderate group, and hence IL-21 may contribute to the immune imbalance that occurs in AP.
