Mechanism Behind Onset of Autoimmune Pancreatitis Caused by Changes in Intestinal Flora Elucidated Development of New Treatment Methods Expected - Kindai University

Press releases   •   Jul 10, 2019 01:00 UTC

Kindai University have discovered, for the first time in the world, a deep link between changes in the maintained balance of accumulated co-existing intestinal flora (bacteria) and immune responses in patients with chronic disease of the pancreas caused by autoimmune pancreatitis. This paper will be published online at midnight Japan time, July 10th, 2019, in “International Immunology”.

-We have succeeded in observing the reconstruction of cell nuclei collected from mammoth fossils inside living mouse oocytes. -Mammoth’s cell nuclei were found to have retained biological activity for 28,000 years in permafrost. -This study paves a way for decoding old biological information using cell nuclei of ancient creatures and future leaps of evolutionary biology are expected.

Immuno-pathogenesis of Chronic Pancreatic Diseases Uncovered Applications expected for the treatment of pancreatic diseases and preventive measures for pancreatic cancer - Kindai University

Press releases   •   Oct 25, 2018 16:00 UTC

Until now, the barely understood immuno-pathogenesis for chronic inflammation of the pancreas has been uncovered. The pathogenic immune response that is common for both autoimmune pancreatitis and chronic pancreatitis was elucidated for the first time in the world. Applications are expected for new treatments of chronic pancreatic inflammation and new preventive measures for pancreatic cancer.
