Abstract: Background & Aims We studied the effects of pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) on body weight, nutritional status, and quality of life (QoL) in patients with pancreatic exocrine insufficiency after pancreatoduodenectomy. Methods We performed a randomized, double-blind trial of 304 patients who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy at 7 tertiary referral hospitals in South Korea. Patients with fecal levels of elastase of 200 μg/g at or less, before and after surgery, were randomly a...

Abstract Background & Aims Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is a sensitive method to evaluate the pancreas but its diagnostic capability for several diseases is limited. We compared the diagnostic yield of unenhanced EUS with that of contrast-enhanced EUS for focal pancreas lesions and identified and tested quantitative parameters of contrast enhancement. Methods We performed a prospective tandem-controlled trial in which 101 patients with focal pancreas lesions (48 with masses, 28 with cysts, and 25...

Abstract Background & Aims Lynch syndrome is the most common inherited cause of gastrointestinal cancer and increases risk for a variety of malignancies, including gastric cancer. We aimed to identify clinical factors associated with gastric cancer in carriers of germline variants causing Lynch syndrome. Methods We collected data from 52,758 consecutive individuals tested for genetic variants associated with Lynch syndrome from June 2006 through July 2013 at a commercial laboratory. We obtained ...

Abstract Background & Aims In some patients, the type 3 achalasia (A3) motor pattern may be an effect of chronic use of high-dose opioids. No motor findings have been identified to differentiate opioid-induced A3 (OA3) from idiopathic A3 (IA3). We investigated whether OA3 could be distinguished from IA3 on the basis of differences in esophageal motor responses to amyl nitrite, cholecystokinin, or atropine. Methods We performed a retrospective study of patients who received pharmacologic provocat...

Abstract Background & Aims Military veterans were reported to have higher odds of hepatitis B virus (HBV) exposure after adjustment for demographic factors, family income, and birthplace. It is not clear whether military-related exposures are associated with risk of HBV exposure in veterans. Methods A random sample of veterans receiving care from 1998 through 2000 in the national Veterans’ Health Administration system completed a risk factor survey and underwent phlebotomy analysis (n=1146). Sto...

Background & Aims The intestine regulates glucose homeostasis, but it is not clear whether chronic intestinal inflammation affects risk for type 2 diabetes. We investigated the long-term risk of type 2 diabetes in patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) in a nationwide cohort study in Denmark. Methods In a nationwide population-based cohort of 6,028,844 persons in Denmark, we compared data from individuals with a diagnosis of IBD (Crohn’s disease [CD] or ulcerative colitis UC]) with data...
