IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-RC) is a clinical condition described in the last 10 years, according to the growing knowledge on IgG4-related diseases (IgG4-RD). In Europe, few studies have been published on IgG4-RC and the information available are mainly derived from patients suffering from autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). The chapter report the knowledge about the disease in Europe, and diagnostic algorytm and therapy currently applied for this rare but challenging disease.

Objective Corticosteroid has been established as the standard therapy for autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP), but the requirement for maintenance corticosteroid therapy is controversial. We conducted a randomised controlled trial to clarify the efficacy of maintenance corticosteroid therapy in patients with AIP. Design We conducted a multicentre, tertiary setting, randomised controlled trial. After the induction of remission with the initial oral prednisolone (PSL) treatment, maintenance therapy with...

Abstract Objective Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) responds dramatically to corticosteroids treatment. We reviewed our experience to determine the safety and effectiveness of treating obstructive jaundice in definitive AIP with corticosteroids alone without biliary stenting. Methods From our AIP database, we retrospectively identified type 1 AIP subjects whose jaundice was treated with corticosteroids alone without biliary stenting. Their medical records were reviewed and clinical data were evalua...

Objectives To evaluate the efficacy of rituximab (RTX) in IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) in an open-label pilot trial. Methods We treated 30 IgG4-RD patients with two doses of RTX (1000 mg each). The participants were either treated with RTX alone (n = 26; 87%) or required to discontinue baseline glucocorticoids (GC) within 2 months (n = 4; 13%). Disease activity was measured by the IgG4-RD Responder Index (IgG4-RD RI) and physician9s global assessment (PGA). Disease response was defined as the ...

OBJECTIVES:Steroids are used to induce remission in autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). Low-dosage steroid therapy or immunosuppressant (IMs) has been proposed as maintenance therapy to prevent AIP relapse. Few and conflicting data have been published on the efficacy of azathioprine (AZA) in preventing A

textabstractOBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to compare efficacy of high versus low doses of prednisone for induction of remission in autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). METHODS: This is a retrospective, multicenter study including patients diagnosed with AIP between May 1992 and August 2011. Clinical, laboratory and imaging findings were assessed before treatment and at 1, 3, and 6 months after starting treatment. RESULTS: A total of 65 patients (57 males; median age, 63 years) were treate...

textabstractOBJECTIVE: Several diagnostic scoring systems for autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) have been proposed including the Asian, HISORt (Histology, Imaging, Serology, Other organ involvement and Response to therapy), and International Consensus Diagnostic Criteria (ICDC), which have been compared by a few studies. We evaluated the diagnostic performance of these criteria in patients diagnosed with AIP between May 1992 and August 2011. METHODS: Scoring systems were applied retrospectively usin...

Background There is a paucity of data on long-term management of type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP), a relapsing steroid-responsive disorder. Objective We describe our experience with treatment of relapses and maintenance of remission using steroid-sparing immunomodulators (IMs) and induction of remission using rituximab (RTX). Methods We obtained details of disease relapse and treatment in 116 type 1 AIP patients from clinic visits, medical records and telephone interviews. We compared relaps...

Background: International consensus diagnostic criteria (ICDC) have been proposed to classify autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) in type 1, type 2, or not otherwise specified. Objective: Aim was to apply the ICDC to an Italian series of patients to evaluate the incidence and clinical profiles among different subtypes of AIP. Methods: we re-evaluated and classified 92 patients diagnosed by Verona criteria, according to the ICDC. Results: Out of 92 patients, 59 (64%) were diagnosed as type 1, 17 (18%) ...
