Whether indigenous or introduced, red deer (Cervus elaphus,left) now roam every continent except Antarctica. Females ( “hinds”) and males (“stags” or “harts”) segregate most of the year into bachelorette and bachelor groups, respectively.

Harder than bone, their antlers have been fashioned by humans into knives and other tools for thousands of years. Antler carvers learned rather quickly not to discard leftover horn into campfires because...

This study was designed to investigate characteristics of the disease to predict recurrence.Methods: We retrospectively analyzed 617 patients that experienced a first AP attack between January 2009 and December 2014. Based on reviews of clinical and follow-up data, we attempted to identify risk factors of recurrence using Cox regression analysis.Results: During a median follow-up of 3.2 years (range 3-72 months), 100(16.2%) of the 617 study subjects experienced one or more episodes of recurrent acute pancreatitis (RAP). Of these 100 patients, 75(75%) experienced one relapse, 12(12%) two relapses, and 13(13%) ...
