  • Idiopathic chronic pancreatitis (ICP) is the leading cause of nonalcoholic chronic pancreatitis. This study examined a series of patients with ICP to determine the prevalence and role of mutations of the cystic fibrosis gene (CFTR) and of a trypsin inhibitor gene (PSTI). Genetic testing was done in 39 patients with ICP. In this series, 17 patients had CFTR mutations and 9 had PSTI mutations. Pancreatitis risk was increased 14-fold by having the N34S PSTI mutation, 40-fold by having two abnormal… CONTINUE READING
