Consensus statement on the pathology of IgG4-related disease
This statement proposes a terminology scheme for the diagnosis of IgG4-related disease that is based primarily on the morphological appearance on biopsy, and advocates the use of strict criteria for accepting newly proposed entities or sites as components of the IgG 4- related disease spectrum.

Standard steroid treatment for autoimmune pancreatitis
The major indication for steroid treatment in AIP is the presence of symptoms, and an initial prednisolone dose of 0.6 mg/kg/day, is recommend, which is then reduced to a maintenance dose over a period of 3–6 months. Expand
Clinical diagnostic criteria of autoimmune pancreatitis: revised proposal
The accumulation of many AIP cases shows that the concept of AIP has changed slightly to include extrapancreatic lesions and associated disorders, which suggests that the current diagnostic criteria are becoming inadequate. Expand
A novel clinical entity, IgG4-related disease (IgG4RD): general concept and details
Although IgG4RD forms a distinct, clinically independent disease category and is attracting strong attention as a new clinical entity, many questions and problems still remain to be elucidated, including its pathogenesis, the establishment of diagnostic criteria, and the role of IgG 4. Expand
Long-term outcomes of autoimmune pancreatitis: a multicentre, international analysis
AIP is a global disease which uniformly displays a high response to steroid treatment and tendency to relapse in the pancreas and biliary tree, and long-term outcomes, including organs involved, treatments, relapse frequency andLong-term sequelae are described. Expand
Autoimmune-related pancreatitis is associated with autoantibodies and a Th1/Th2-type cellular immune response.
An autoimmune mechanism against CA-II or LF, and Th1-type immune response, may be involved in patients with autoimmune-related pancreatitis. Expand
