An enteric-coated pancreatic enzyme preparation that works

Digestive Diseases and Sciences
D Y Graham


A new enteric-coated pancreatic enzyme preparation (microspheres) was compared with traditional enzyme tablets in six subjects with severe exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. The microspheres were found to be as effective as traditional enzyme supplements. In most patients in balance studies, the lowest fecal fat values were obtained with microsphere therapy in spite of a smaller amount of lipase administered (6015 vs 10,800-43,200 lipase units per meal). In contrast to enteric-coated tablets, microspheres can be recommended in the treatment of pancreatic steatorrhea.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.
