Japanese clinical practice guidelines for pancreaticobiliary maljunction

Terumi KamisawaJapanese Study Group on Pancreaticobiliary Maljunction


There have been no clinical guidelines for the management of pancreaticobiliary maljunction (PBM). The Japanese Study Group on Pancreaticobiliary Maljunction (JSPBM) has proposed to establish clinical practice guidelines on how to deal with PBM, with the support of the Japan Biliary Association (JBA). Because the body of evidence-based literature is relatively small, we decided to create guidelines based on the consensus of experts, using the medical literature for reference. A total of 46 clinical questions (CQs) were considered by the members of the editorial committee responsible for the guidelines. The CQs covered distinct aspects of PBM: (1) Concepts and Pathophysiology (10 CQs); (2) Diagnosis (10 CQs); (3) Pancreatobiliary complications (9 CQs); and (4) Treatments and prognosis (17 CQs). Statements and comments for each CQ were prepared by the guidelines committee members and collaborating partners. The CQs were completed after review by members of the editorial committee, meetings of this committee, public comments on the homepages of the JSPBM and the JBA, public hearings, and assessment and approval by the guidelines evaluation board. PBM includes cases where the bile duct is dilated (PBM with biliary dilatation) and t...Continue Reading

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.
