Abstract Background. An increased incidence of CFTR mutations has recently been reported in chronic and idiopathic pancreatitis. Aim. The aim of the study was to verify these data and describe the clinical, morphological and histological findings in 99 patients (59 males, 40 females, mean age 40±16 years), 45 suffering from idiopathic chronic pancreatitis and 54 from acute recurrent pancreatitis. Methods. Each subject was screened for the 18 CFTR mutations: DF508, DI507, R1162X, 2183AA>G, 21303K...

Gabexate mesilate is an antiprotease drug, which reduced the severity of pancreatitis and frequency of post-ERCP pancreatitis. In dogs gabexate inhibits sphincter of Oddi motility but no data are available in humans. The aim of this study was to verify by manometry the action of gabexate on human sphincter of Oddi motility. We enrolled 12 patients with idiopathic recurrent pancreatitis (eight males, five females, mean age 46 ± 8 years). Standard preendoscopic sphincter of Oddi manometry was done...

Many Cystic Fibrosis (CF) carriers have been detected testing some subjects with chronic pancreatititis for a limited number of mutations. The aim of this study was to find out if some subjects with pancreatitis and a CFTR mutation actually carry another, undetected mutation. We screened for 18 CFTR mutations plus the CFTR intron 8 poly(T) tract length a population of 67 patients suffering from idiopathic either acute, or recurrent acute, or chronic pancreatitis. Three of them were diagnosed as ...
