Expanding uses of octreotide


, : Expanding uses of octreotide. Bailliere's Clinical Gastroenterology 8(2): 321-337

This chapter reviews the therapeutic use of octreotide in a variety of pancreatic disorders, including acute pancreatitis, in the prevention of postoperative and post-ERCP pancreatitis, in the control of postoperative pancreatic fistulae, and in chronic pancreatitis for the control of pain and of pseudocysts and ascites. The review also discusses the use of octreotide in intestinal disorders of motility, gastrointestinal bleeding, intestinal fistulae and refractory diarrhoea, including the diarrhoeas of AIDS, diabetes, short gut, chemotherapy, ileostomy and gastric surgery. The use of octreotide in neuroendocrine tumours, both for therapy and diagnostic imaging, is reviewed briefly. The paucity of adequately controlled studies in many of these situations is indicated and the potential usefulness of octreotide estimated.

Sirtuin 6 (SIRT6) has recently been demonstrated to play an important role in the regulation of longevity in mammals. We therefore aimed to determine whether common variations in the SIRT6 gene are associated with human longevity. Five tag single...

A specific protein assay system based on functional liposome-modified gold electrodes has been demonstrated. To fabricate such assay system, a liposome layer was initially grown on top of a gold layer. The liposome layer contained two kinds of fun...
