Retroperitoneal fibrosis associated with immunoglobulin G4-related disease.
TLDR
The recently advocated concept and diagnostic criteria of immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease, derived from research on autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP), has led to widespread recognition of retroperitoneal fibrosis as a condition caused by IgG4-related disease.
A case of lipomatous pseudohypertrophy of the pancreas diagnosed by typical imaging.
TLDR
The case of a 64-year-old female who was undergoing treatment for Hashimoto's disease indicated the possibility that lipomatous pseudohypertrophy of the pancreas may be diagnosed solely by typical imaging findings and serological data.
The Current Strategy for Managing Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors in Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1
TLDR
In cases of unresectable pNET, a somatostatin analog has been shown to demonstrate antitumor effects and is considered to be a promising treatment and molecular-targeted drugs have recently been found to be effective in phase III clinical trials.
Endoscopic approach through the minor papilla for the management of pancreatic diseases.
TLDR
The endoscopic minor papilla approach is technically feasible, safe, and effective when the procedure is performed in a high-volume referral center by experienced endoscopists.
Serum chromogranin A is a useful marker for Japanese patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
TLDR
It is shown that CGA is a useful marker for diagnosing pNET in Japanese populations and for distinguishing patients with pNET from patients with other pancreatic diseases and the increased use of CGA in Japan will likely be a helpful tool in managing these patients, as found in the West.
Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide (VIP) and VIP Receptors-Elucidation of Structure and Function for Therapeutic Applications
TLDR
While primary investigations for developing therapeutic applications for various pathological conditions and diseases are underway, the structure and function of VIP should be analyzed in more detail.
Fractalkine and TGF-beta1 levels reflect the severity of chronic pancreatitis in humans.
TLDR
It is suggested that the measurement of serum F-fractalkine is useful to diagnose early-stage CP and the combined determination of both, s-fractionalkine and TGF-beta1, in human sera may be helpful in evaluating the severity status of CP.
Vasoactive intestinal peptide reduces oxidative stress in pancreatic acinar cells through the inhibition of NADPH oxidase
TLDR
Findings of this study suggest that VIP exerts its protective effect in pancreatic damage, not only through an inhibition of cytokine production, but also through a reduction of the injury caused by oxidative stress.
Epidemiological Study of Pancreatic Diabetes in Japan in 2005: A Nationwide Study
TLDR
Patients with chronic pancreatitis-associated pancreatic diabetes should receive lifestyle guidance focused on drinking cessation because of the frequency of hypoglycemia, which was a major cause of death in patients who were on insulin and continuous drinkers.
A sustained prostacyclin analog, ONO-1301, attenuates pancreatic fibrosis in experimental chronic pancreatitis induced by dibutyltin dichloride in rats.
TLDR
ONO-1301 suppresses pancreatic fibrosis in the DBTC-induced CP model by inhibiting monocyte activity not only with induction of HGF but also by ONO- 1301 itself.
