Gastroenterology at IgMin Research | Medicine Group

Our mission is to foster interdisciplinary dialogue and accelerate the advancement of knowledge across a wide spectrum of scientific domains.


Gastroenterology is the specialized medical field focused on the study, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders affecting the digestive system, which includes the esophagus, stomach, intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. Gastroenterologists are experts in understanding the intricacies of digestion and the complex interplay of gastrointestinal processes. Their expertise spans from detecting early signs of gastrointestinal diseases to managing chronic conditions and improving patients' digestive health.

The study of gastroenterology involves in-depth knowledge of gastrointestinal anatomy, physiology, and pathology. Gastroenterologists utilize a wide range of diagnostic procedures, including endoscopy, imaging, and laboratory tests, to assess and diagnose gastrointestinal issues. By offering tailored treatment plans and preventive measures, gastroenterology plays a crucial role in maintaining optimal digestive function and overall well-being.

Diagnostic Challenges in Pancreatic Tumors
by Ionuţ Simion Coman, Elena Violeta Coman, Costin George Florea, Teodora Elena Tudose, Cosmin Burleanu, Anwar Erchid and Valentin Titus Grigorean

Background: Pancreatic tumors have a large diversity, with an increasing incidence and mortality. Although the diagnosis methods have improved in recent years, establishing a diagnosis and a histopathological type of pancreatic tumor can still pose a challenge. Aim: We propose to present a concise list of difficulties regarding the clinical, biological, and imagistic diagnosis of pancreatic tumors. Key information: The clinical manifestations of pancreatic tumors depend on their location and size, on the presence of metastatic lesions..., but the difficulty of orientation towards this diagnosis is determined by the fact that most lesions are asymptomatic or present in the early stages of non-specific symptoms. The usual biological parameters are non-specific in pancreatic tumors in the early stages, but studies are underway regarding a series of biomarkers, genetic micro-sequences, or inorganic nanomaterials that could be used in the early diagnosis of pancreatic cancers. An essential stage in the diagnosis of pancreatic tumors is represented by imaging investigations, which are associated with endoscopic and tumor biopsy procedures and can outline a picture regarding the presence of the tumor at the level of the pancreas, the relationship with the neighboring organs, the nature of the tumor and the histopathological type. There are a series of indications and limitations regarding each of these investigations, trying to develop various algorithms for the diagnosis of pancreatic tumors. Conclusion: The medical research conducted to develop new diagnostic procedures has the objective of ensuring an early diagnosis of pancreatic tumors, in a stage that offers the best chances of recovery for the patient.
