Meeting Objectives

  • Identify gaps and recommendations
  • Use workshop recommendations to inform possible future funding initiatives by NIDDK
  • Publish a conference summary


Recurrent acute and chronic pancreatitis are characterized by pain, disability, and late-stage complications. No U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)–approved drugs currently exist to treat these diseases, but interest in developing therapeutic strategies and clinical trial guidelines has increased, both among the investigative community and in the FDA. This 1-day workshop will feature discussions to help attendees understand the principles and requirements of clinical trials for treatment approaches for these diseases.
