New European Guidelines on PEI Under Development

24th Apr 2021

European Guideline on the diagnosis and therapy of pancreatic exocrine insufficiency

UEG, EPC, EDS, ESPGHAN, ESPEN and ESPCG evidence-based recommendations

The European Pancreatic Club is leading the UEG application to get funding for the development of the ‘European Guideline on the Diagnosis and Therapy of Pancreatic Exocrine Insufficiency’.

The need of this guideline is based on the wide variability in the diagnostic and therapeutic approach to pancreatic exocrine insufficiency in different clinical scenarios and different centers across Europe, as well as and in non-European countries.

The EPC has invited other UEG Specialist Member Societies to join this project with the aim of developing a transversal multidisciplinary guideline to be adopted by all specialties around Europe. The following societies have confirmed their participation:

  • European Digestive Surgery (EDS)
  • European Society for Primary Care Gastroenterology (ESCPG)
  • European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition  (ESPGHAN)
  • European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN)

In addition, several UEG National Member Societies and Patients’ Associations have endorsed the proposal.

The following EPC members constitute the steering committee responsible for the design of the guideline protocol and UEG application: J. Enrique Domínguez-Muñoz (Spain, lead applicant), Matthias Löhr (Sweden, co-chair), Daniel de la Iglesia-García (Spain, scientific secretary), Djuna Cahen (Netherlands), Gabriele Capurso (Italy), Natalya Gubergrits (Ukraine), Peter Hegyi (Hungary), Vinciane Rebours (France) and Jonas Rosenthal (Germany).
