Predicting Treatment Response In Chronic Pancreatitis Using Quantitative Sensory Testing

Study Overview

This study wants to better understand how a person with Chronic Pancreatitis feels pain even though scans show no blockages or other reasons why pain should exist. The study, called Predicting treatment response in Chronic Pancreatitis using Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST), wants to better understand how a person with Chronic Pancreatitis feels pain even though scans show no blockages or other reasons why pain should exist. QST is a series of small tests that are used to map the nervous system based on the idea that we can outline nerve networks without having to do invasive testing. While QST patients will receive many different types of interventions, therapies, or surgical procedures, a group of “control” subjects with no pancreas disease are needed to serve as a comparison group.
