Several mesalamine preparations have been implicated in causing pancreatitis, both orally and via enema, and sulfasalazine. Other causes include iatrogenic injury (i.e. However, drugs suspected to induce pancreatitis should be discontinued or exchanged with an alternative drug, when possible. To determine the pancreatotoxic risk of a wide range of drugs.

Tell your doctor right away if you develop blisters or the breakdown of the outer layer of your skin (erosion). This is a condition where the pancreas becomes inflamed. Due to the high number of participating hospitals and the variety of medical departments, we were able to assess a wide range of drugs.Regarding the individual causality assessment, it was always carried out by the study physician in a standardised way. The pain may be felt going from your abdomen through to your back. Firstly, we applied a standardised causality assessment on all individual patients diagnosed with idiopathic AP (IAP) using defined clinical criteria to detect a possible drug‐relation of the disease.

A Review Of Recent Research On Issue Of Whether Januvia Can Cause Pancreatitis. The common side effects associated with VPA are typically benign, but more serious adverse effects may occur. Furthermore, the causality for many of these drugs remains elusive and for only about thirty of these 525 dugs has a definite causality been established (61).


Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a heterogeneous disease ranging from a clinically mild form to a more severe forms associated with high morbidity and mortality (78). Several of these drugs are used for diseases associated with pancreatitis (i.e. Caution should be exercised with close monitoring in patients with past acute or chronic pancreatitis, although there is documented safety even in these patients (55).Since the introduction of VPA in 1979, a drug commonly prescribed for generalized and focal epilepsy, migraine, neuropathic pain, and bipolar disorder, cases of coincident pancreatitis have been reported (9, 14, 57, 65, 72), often involving children. Some definitions exclude the presence of other etiologies of AP, primarly biliary lithiasis and alcohol abuse. and you may need to create a new Wiley Online Library account.Enter your email address below and we will send you your usernameIf the address matches an existing account you will receive an email with instructions to retrieve your username The association is based on case reports, 3 of them with positive rechallenge test (latency time 1-7 days) (16, 19, 64).In a population-based case-control study, Nørgaard et al.

Speculative mechanism may be free radical production, immune-mediated inflammatory response, and metabolic effects (79).

Biliary sludge or asymptomatic cholecystolithiasis were no exclusion criteria, as such findings can be also seen in AP patients with probable or certain drug causality.Regarding the drugs for the treatment of IBD (mesalazine, azathioprine and mercaptopurine), confounding by indication cannot be ruled out, as IBD is an established risk factor for AP.The thorough validation of the AP cases as well as the strict inclusion and exclusion criteria reduced the number of cases considerably, resulting in decreased statistical power for the case–control analysis. inflammatory bowel diseases, dyslipidemia). Even if some authors have communicated that MP could safely be used after an AZA-induced episode of AP (1),most authors agree that a cross reaction after re- exposure of the related drug is probable.ACE inhibitors are one of the most commonly prescribed classes of medications, as they are used in hypertension, heart failure and proteinuria (32). In the more recent critical review (62, 84), a classification system of the published case reports based on the level of evidence was used.

Prior results do not predict a similar outcome. Before you start taking JANUVIA, tell your doctor if you've ever had pancreatitis.

Later it was found that patients who were taking the drug were more likely to suffer from pancreatitis than … Several times, a positive rechallenge was documented, and, therefore, a certain causality was indicated.Our case–control analysis showed significantly increased risks for angiotensin‐converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors as a group, for lisinopril, as well as for the ramipril/hydrochlorothiazide combination. Understanding of the etiology and severity assessment are essential, as they may affect the acute management of the disease (8). In 2014, the FDA said it there was no cause for concern with safety risks in its review of reports linking Januvia and other DPP-4’s to pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer. It is a part of the class of diabetes medications called DPP-4 inhibitors. Asked 17 Nov 2009 by wandi Updated 1 December 2009 Topics ... Eighty-eight post-marketing cases of acute pancreatitis, including two cases of hemorrhagic or necrotizing pancreatitis in patients using sitagliptin, were reported to the Agency between October 2006 and February 2009.
