INSPPIRE 2

Summary

Only a few research studies have focused on pancreatitis in children, which limits what we know about pancreatitis in children and how to treat it. In this study, researchers will collect blood or saliva for genetic analysis, urine (for biomarker analysis), clinical data, and questionnaires from children with all types of pancreatitis. The study will continue to collect questionnaires from participants until they are 18 years old. (Participants may answer questionnaires for as long as they choose after the age of 18). Researchers hope to use the samples and data to learn how common pancreatitis is in children, what causes pancreatitis, and how it progresses (gets worse). The study will evaluate lab results, images, and response to treatment. In so doing, researchers aim to develop better tests and treatments for the disease.
