OBJECTIVES Gastrointestinal manifestations of coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) have been well established, but pancreatic involvement is under debate. Our aims were to evaluate the presence of acute pancreatitis in COVID-19 patients and to assess the frequency of pancreatic hyperenzymemia. METHODS From April 1, 2020, to April 30, 2020, 110 consecutive patients (69 males, 41 females; mean age, 63.0 years; range, 24-93 years) met these criteria and were enrolled in the study. The clinical data an...

Although pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) survival is poor, there are differences in patients' response to the treatments. Detection of predictive biomarkers explaining these differences is of the utmost importance. In a recent study two genetic markers (CD44-rs353630 and CHI3L2-rs684559) were reported to be associated with survival after PDAC resection. We attempted to replicate the associations in 1856 PDAC patients (685 resected with stage I/II) from the PANcreatic Disease ReseArch (PA...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is projected to become the second cancer-related cause of death by 2030. Identifying novel risk factors, including genetic risk loci, could be instrumental in risk stratification and implementation of prevention strategies. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are involved in regulation of key biological processes, and the possible role of their genetic variability has been unexplored so far. Combining genome wide association studies and functional data, we inves...

BACKGROUND: Vitamin D (VitD) deficiency has been reported to be associated with respiratory tract infection. In this work we evaluated the concentration of VitD in COVID-19 patients experiencing acute respiratory infections of different levels of severity excluding those who underwent invasive respiratory support. METHODS: The levels of serum VitD and C-reactive protein (CRP) were analyzed in 118 consecutive hospitalized COVID-19 patients (74M, 44F), confirmed with rRT-PCR. Of these patients wit...

Background and study aim Pre-endoscopic use of a preparation with tensioactive and mucolytic agents improved gastric mucosa visualization in Eastern studies. Data on Western population are scanty. Patients and methods This prospective, endoscopist-blinded, randomized study enrolled patients who underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy in a single center. Before endoscopy patients, were randomized to receive or not receive an oral preparation with simethicone and N-acetylcysteine in water. A preteste...

A 77-year-old male patient experienced a seven Kg weight loss and 4-5 bowel movements per day with the greasy and foul-smelling stools. He had arterial hypertension treated with olmesartan 20 mg per day for the previous five years. A colonoscopy was normal and histology showed a collagenous colitis. For the failure of budesonide treatment he was admitted to our Department. An upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed the disappearance of duodenal villi and histology showed severe atrophy of the du...
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most aggressive malignancies and represents the seventh leading cause of cancer deaths in industrialized countries; in the United States, it is the third leading cause of death from cancer while in Italy it is the fourth. It is expected to become the second cancer death by 2030. The five-year survival rate is 9%, as patients with pancreatic cancer rarely exhibit symptoms until they reach an advanced stage of the disease. Therefore, despite advances in imaging tech...
