Endoscopic pancreatography in management of relapsing acute pancreatitis

British Medical Journal
P B Cotton, J S Beales


Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (E.R.C.P.) was attempted in 31 patients suffering from repeated attacks of acute pancreatitis. Pancreatograms were obtained in 25 patients. Twelve showed definite "surgical lesions" (obstructions, strictures, or pseudocysts). In at least three patients failure to obtain a pancreatogram was due to obstruction of pancreatic duct close to the papilla. Two patients, both with pseudocysts, developed a mild relapse of pancreatitis after the procedure. Surgical intervention based on the x-ray findings seemed beneficial in the short follow-up period.Endoscopic pancreatography can be of value in deciding when surgery is advisable for patients with relapsing acute pancreatitis and in determining the operative appreach. It is an advance in the management of a difficult clinical condition.

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.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
