Title: Pancreas.org
Url: http://pancreas.org/
Creator: Whitcomb, David
Publisher: University of Pittsburgh.
Description: Developed by Dr. David Whitcomb (the current president of the American Pancreatic Association) in collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh Medical School, this site offers a host of material on the pancreas for those persons dealing with diseases associated with this organ, as well as for doctors and scientists. Much of this material can be easily accessed from the site's homepage, which also features a helpful three-dimensional visual rendering of the pancreas and related structures for quick reference. The sections for patients contains background information on some of the more common conditions associated with the pancreas, such as acute pancreatitis, hereditary pancreatitis, and pancreatic cancer, which is the fourth leading cause of death due to cancer in almost every industrialized country. The sections for physicians and scientists is also well-developed, as both of them contain information on genetic testing, clinical trials, and research groups with a keen interest in the pancreas.
