Creon (pancrelipase) therapy for subjects with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) due to pancreatic cancer: A double-blind, randomized, parallel design with 2 dose cohorts of pancrelipase in resected pancreatic cancer subjects and an open-label single dose cohort in non-resected pancreatic cancer subjects

Advancing Treatment for Pancreatitis: A Prospective Observational Study of TPIAT (POST)

List of Studies

Keywords
Diabetes, Digestive System, Insulin, Pancreas, Surgery, Transplant
Summary

The purpose of this research study is to learn more about the outcomes of total pancreatectomy with islet autotransplantation (TPIAT). Total pancreatectomy is the removal of the pancreas and islet autotransplantation is the placement of the insulin producing cells back into you to prevent diabetes. This study is looking to enroll patients who are scheduled to have a TPIAT surgery to treat pancreatitis (inflammation and scarring of the pancreas).

In addition to the routine care for pancreatitis and TPIAT surgery, participation in this study will involve completion of some brief surveys about the subject's health before TPIAT, at 6 months after TPIAT, and each year after the TPIAT surgery for 4 years, as well as a lab test conducted at each of the follow-up visits.
