Two works to convince the jury of Wiesbaden this year, April 2012 for the third time was awarded this year the NorGA (Norgine gastro Award), an award for outstanding gastroenterological work. Two winners prevailed, Priv.-Doz.. Dr. Oliver Pech, Director of endoscopy and senior physician of the HSK Wiesbaden and Priv.-Doz.. Dr. Jutta Keller, senior physician at the Jewish Hospital of Hamburg.

In his work, Dr. Oliver Pech compares the endoscopic and surgical resection of mucosal beret carcinoma in two high volume “-centers.” Dr. Jutta Keller examined the detection of moderate exocrine pancreatic insufficiency by a modified 13 C breath test with mixed triglycerides. Both will receive a prize money of 5,000 euros by Norgine. Once again scientific work could convince consisting of the jury, from Prof. Dr. Thomas Berg, Prof.

Dr. Christian Ell, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Fischbach, Prof. Dr. Michael Gebel, Prof. Dr. Volker Gross and Prof. Dr. Peter Layer with respect to their medical progress. Award winners Dr. Oliver Pech compares in its Study two methods for the treatment of mukosalem Carcinoma of beret (BC), the current surgical standard of care and the endoscopic resection (ER), which also has been established as a method. Of the 76 subjects with BC, based on 38 patients were treated endoscopically and surgically. Complete remission has been achieved both in the ER and in the surgery group in all patients. The endoscopic therapy this recorded a higher relapse rate, the surgical method, however, showed a higher morbidity and mortality. The obtained results show that both methods provide a safe method to treat patients with BC. Dr. Jutta Keller impressed with her work on the detection of a moderate exocrine pancreatic insufficiency by means of a modified 13 C breath test with mixed triglycerides (13-C-TG-AT). Purpose of their study was to define a clinical test, with a moderately severe pancreatic insufficiency can be detected reliably. Nine were patients with pancreatic diseases, as well as a healthy control group (n = 10) subjected to three scientific tests. The tests showed a very high sensitivity of the 13-C-TG-AT, which thus proves very reliable for the diagnosis of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. “Richard Samson, marketing manager of Norgine GmbH, on a very successful year looks back: for two years, we now give the NorGA Award and the various works show so much potential and commitment that we have drawn two winners this year.” Both winners also receive the opportunity to present their excellent work in the gastro update special 2013 in addition to the prize money. I thank all those who have supported me during the investigations and allows this to me”, so Dr. Jutta Keller. “In addition, adds Dr. Oliver Pech: I am pleased about the award and hope to have achieved a medical progress with my work.” Press contact: antwerpes ag Nicole Tappee Valentina str. 66, 50823 Koln phone: 0221 92053-0 fax: 0221 92053-133 E-Mail:
