#Track 3: Gastrointestinal Disorders
#P.S: https://bit.ly/2mIEceL 

    Gastrointestinal disorders include such conditions as #constipation, #irritable #bowel #syndrome, #hemorrhoids, anal #fissures. Functional disorders are those in which the gastrointestinal #(GI) tract looks normal but doesn't work properly. The Gastrointestinal problems can be treated by increasing the amount of fiber in food and by exercising regularly. Rapid Gastric Emptying syndrome occurs when food, especially sugar, moves too fast from the stomach to the duodenum and it is also caused by problems with the storage of food particles in the stomach and emptying of particles into the duodenum.Hemorrhoids are #swollen #veins in the lowest part of the #rectum and anus. External hemorrhoids are under the skin around the #anus, where there are many more pain-sensing nerves, so they tend to hurt as well as bleed. Hemorrhoids are mainly caused by buildup of pressure in the lower rectum and it can affect #blood flow and make the #veins #swell.

    #Track 8: Pancreatic enzymes and Hormones
    #P.S : https://bit.ly/2mIEceL

      The pancreas excretes enzymes to break down the #proteins, #lipids, #carbohydrates, and nucleic acids in food. Functioning as an endocrine gland, the pancreas secretes the hormones #insulin and #glucagon to control blood sugar levels throughout the day. A pancreatic pseudocyst is a collection of fluid around the pancreas. The fluid in the cyst is usually pancreatic juice that has leaked out of a damaged #pancreatic duct. Pancreatic pseudocysts arise after acute pancreatitis or chronic pancreatitis. Pancreatic intraductal #papillary #mucinous neoplasms (#IPMNs) is the most common cystic tumors of the pancreas that can occur within the cells of the pancreatic duct. IPMN tumors produce mucus, and this mucus can form pancreatic cysts. Radiological imaging techniques and the incidental detection rate for treating #IPMNs has increased. Cysts formed by IPMNs are visible under CT (#Computed-tomography) scan.

      #Track 19: Food Toxicology

      Food toxicology studies shows how natural or synthetic #poisons and #toxicants in diverse food products cause harmful, detrimental, or adverse side effects in living organisms. Food Toxicology causes #dehydration.

      FibroGen Presents Clinical Results of Pamrevlumab Treatment in Patients with Locally Advanced Unresectable Pancreatic Cancer at ASCO 2018 Annual Meeting

      #Track 18 : Laparoscopic Pancreatic Surgery

      # P.S : https://bit.ly/2mIEceL



      #Pancreatic surgery is still associated with a relatively high morbidity and mortality compared with other specialties. #Laparoscopic surgery is typically performed using 3 or 4 half-inch or one-inch incisions, sparing patients a large incision. Laparoscopic surgery is ideal for tumors of the #pancreas tail. Larger #tumors of any part of the pancreas for which an open operation is required can be started #laparoscopically to look for cancer spread before making the large incision. The hand-access devices are a major advancement in laparoscopic surgery and allows the #surgeon to place the hand into the abdomen during the surgical procedure. Patient who undergo laparoscopic #distal pancreatectomy have less pain, rapid recovery and early discharge compared to open distal #pancreatectomy.

      Interpace Diagnostics Presents New Data on PancraGEN® at Digestive Disease Week

      #Track 11: Bioinformatics in Gastroenterology

      # P.S : https://bit.ly/2mIEceL



      #Advances in high-throughput technologies in #biomedical research have led to a dramatic increase in the accessibility of molecular insights at multiple biological levels in Gastroenterology. The bioinformatics data repositories have rapidly evolved into an essential aid for molecular Gastroenterology. Molecular targets and networks have increasingly gained attention in particular due to the efforts of the #Human Genome Project. Similarly, bioinformatics and database resource for liver #cancer are the best developed #tools in #hepatology.

      #Track 16 : CHOLESTATIC HEPATITIS
      # P.S: https://bit.ly/2mIEceL

      #Cholestatic hepatitis is called as cholangiolitic hepatitis, which is the obstruction of bile secretion and dysfunction of bile #canaliculi in the Golgi apparatus of the liver cells. Viral infection is the most common cause of cholestatic hepatitis. A cholestatic problem causes #characteristic changes in the blood. The levels of #liver enzymes referred to alkaline phosphotase and gamma #glutamyl-transferase (#GGT) rise. #Bilirubin is the substance that causes jaundice, or the yellow-orange color of patient with a serious liver problem. During the acute stage of cholestatic hepatitis, #electron microscopy and histo-chemical studies of the liver cell demonstrated that the cell apparatuses, such as the Golgi apparatus, exhibited #degeneration of the smooth #endoreticulum and #mitochondria.

      #Track 6: Recent advancement in Gastroenterology

      Gastroenterology has emerged from the backwoods of medical specialties only over the past 20 years. The influences behind this rapid transformation have been twofold. Firstly, the massive improvement in the technology of diagnosis, through radiology but especially in the use of #fibreoptic endoscopy. #Radioimmunoassay(RIA) is a very sensitive in vitro assay technique used to measure concentrations of substances, usually measuring antigen concentrations. In recent studies, it was found that RIA plays a major role in treating gastrointestinal disoders. #Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (#ERCP) is a technique that combines the use of endoscopy and fluoroscopy to diagnose and treat certain problems of the biliary or pancreatic ductal systems. Pancreatic tumors no longer represent a valid diagnostic indication for #ERCP unless they cause bile duct obstruction and jaundice. ERCP can be used in the Removal of stones or other #biliary debris.

      Track 9: Gut microbiome

        Bacteria, viruses, fungi and other microscopic living things are referred to as microorganisms, or microbes. Trillions of these microbes exist mainly inside the intestines and on the skin. Most of the microbes in the intestines are found in a pocket of large intestine called the #cecum, and they are referred to as the #Gut microbiome. The Gut microbiome refers to all of the microbes in the intestines, which act as another organ that's crucial for the health. Gut microbiota or gastrointestinal #microbiota is the complex community of microorganisms that live in the digestive tracts of humans and other animals, including insects. The Gut metagenome is the aggregate of all the genomes of gut microbiota. The gut microbiome begins to affect the body the moment after the birth. In humans, the gut microbiota has the largest numbers of bacteria and the greatest number of species compared to other areas of the body.
