+934 - Article on Pancreatitis due to Medications

An article from the Bone Marrow Transplantation Journal called "Acute pancreatitis due to tacrolimus in a case of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation." This is a serious problem that has a high mortality rate. David is on Tacrolimus, has been for 936 days. He does not have this problem, but his great-grandmother died of pancreatic problems, so I hope there is no genetic disposition towards this problem. It's an interesting article that all GVHD patients should be aware of.
