Peripapillary duodenal diverticulum and biliary tract diseases

The Japanese Journal of Surgery

The relationship between peripapillary duodenal diverticulum and benign biliary tract disease was studied. Peripapillary duodenal diverticulum could be classified pathophysiologically into three types. Type I represents the disease not directly affecting the biliary tract. Type II shows the elevation of bile duct pressure directly caused by intraduodenal pressure loading. Type III includes patients in whom the diverticulum is small and is prone to cause papillitis or mechanical stimulation. This, then, may lead to organic changes in Oddi's sphincter and possibly to biliary tract disorders. In our patients, many cases of peripapillary duodenal diverticulum were associated with calcium bilirubinate stones, indicating that a peripapillary duodenal diverticulum is likely to lead to bile stagnation and ascending infection of the biliary tract and thus cause formation of calcium bilirubinate stones. Based on findings in this study, we want to emphasize that Type II peripapillary duodenal diverticulum should be surgically treated.

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.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

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.
