Alpha-1 Antitrypsin (AAT) Enhances Islet Autograft Survival in Patients With Chronic Pancreatitis

The goal of this study is to assess whether infusion of Prolastin-C during peri-transplant period can enhance islet autograft survival and function in chronic pancreatitis patients who have total pancreatectomy and islet autotransplantation. This is a prospective, controlled, double-blind study. The primary endpoint will be area under the curve for ...


Quality Control Study of MR Based Screening of Individual With Increased Risk for Pancreas Cancer.
