Research suggests popular diabetes drugs can cause abnormal pancreatic growth in humans
Date:3/27/2013

ent data imply that surveillance for a possible increased risk of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors is warranted."

Such surveillance approaches might include MRI imaging of the pancreas and screening for neuroendocrine tumors, Butler said.

"The present studies are only from a small number of individuals, and while the findings do raise concerns, it will be important that other approaches are now used in a larger group of living individuals to further investigate these findings," he said.

A recent study led by Dr. Sonal Singh of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Public Health and published in JAMA Internal Medicine suggested a doubling in the risk of hospitalization for acute pancreatitis with the GLP-1based therapies and also recommended further research.

"Since most risk factors for acute pancreatitis are also linked to an increased risk of pancreatic cancer, these findings of changes in the human pancreas are very concerning," said Singh, an assistant professor of medicine and international health. "Now that GLP-1based therapies have been shown to increase the risk of pancreatic inflammation and abnormal cell proliferation, further studies are needed to urgently clarify whether these linkages lead to pancreatic cancer with long-term use."
