The course of pain is the same in alcohol- and nonalcohol-induced chronic pancreatitis

P G LankischW Creutzfeldt


The natural course of pain in chronic pancreatitis was followed up in 318 patients over 10.6 +/- 8.0 years (median, 9.0 years). By the end of our follow-up, a significant decline in pain in alcoholics (n = 228) and nonalcoholics (n = 90) (p < 0.001 and p < 0.03) was marred by the fact that, even after more than 10 years, 50% of alcoholics and 62% of nonalcoholics still reported pain attacks (difference insignificant). Only alcoholics had pain relief with increasing exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (p < 0.02), but 54% of alcoholics and 73% of nonalcoholics still had pain attacks despite severe, enzyme substitution-requiring exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. The development of severe endocrine pancreatic insufficiency did not significantly influence the course of pain. It is concluded that no clinically relevant differences exist in the course of pain in alcoholic and nonalcoholic chronic pancreatitis.

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.

Landau-Kleffner Syndrome

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS), also called infantile acquired aphasia, acquired epileptic aphasia, or aphasia with convulsive disorder, is a rare childhood neurological syndrome characterized by the sudden or gradual development of aphasia (the inability to understand or express language) and an abnormal electroencephalogram. Discover the latest research on LKS 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.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.
