Role of standardized reporting and novel imaging markers in chronic pancreatitis.

Curr Opin Gastroenterol 2021 Jun 18. Epub 2021 Jun 18.

Department of Radiology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana Department of Radiology, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Department of Radiology, Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, Ohio Lehman, Bucksot and Sherman Section of Pancreatobiliary Endoscopy, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This article reviews recent efforts about standardized imaging features and reporting of chronic pancreatitis and recently published or ongoing imaging studies, which aim to establish novel imaging biomarkers for detection of parenchymal changes seen in chronic pancreatitis.

Recent Findings: New novel MRI techniques are being developed to increase the diagnostic yield of chronic pancreatitis specifically in the early stage. T1 relaxation time, T1 signal intensity ratio and extracellular volume fraction offer potential advantages over conventional cross-sectional imaging, including simplicity of analysis and more objective interpretation of observations allowing population-based comparisons.

Possible novel non-invasive biomarker for inflammation mediated pancreatic malignancy.

Int J Basic Clin Immunol 2020 25;3(1-4):1-8. Epub 2020 Dec 25.

Department of Medicine, Pulmonary Diseases, Tulane Eosinophilic Disorder Center, Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans, LA 70112, USA.

Objectives: Pancreatic malignancy is a major public health problem worldwide and recent reports indicated that pancreatic cancer will be second most common cause of cancer-related deaths by the end of 2021. The cause of increasing death rate is due to the nonexistence of detection tools to early diagnose, poor prognosis, resistance to chemotherapy and also lack in understanding the mechanism of PDAC pathogenesis. Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) play a major role in metastatic step of intravasation and presence of these cells are strong prognostic marker for the progression of pancreatic malignancy in chronic pancreatitis (CP).

Severe hypertriglyceridemia may sometimes be a monogenic condition. However, in the vast majority of patients, hypertriglyceridemia is due to the cumulative effect of multiple genetic risk variants along with lifestyle factors, medications, and disease conditions that elevate triglyceride levels.

A wide spectrum of hereditary syndromes predispose patients to distinct pancreatic abnormalities, including cystic lesions, recurrent pancreatitis, ductal adenocarcinoma, nonductal neoplasms, and parenchymal iron deposition. While pancreatic exocrine insufficiency and recurrent pancreatitis are common manifestations in cystic fibrosis and hereditary pancreatitis, pancreatic cysts are seen in von Hippel-Lindau disease, cystic fibrosis, autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, and McCune-Albright syndrome. Ductal adenocarcinoma can be seen in many syndromes, including Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, familial atypical multiple mole melanoma syndrome, Lynch syndrome, hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome, Li-Fraumeni syndrome, and familial pancreatic cancer syndrome.
