HSP70 expression in the pancreas is upregulated during pancreatitis and this upregulated expression appears to dampen the severity of pancreatitis. Induction of HSP70, by prior thermal stress, adrenergic stimulation, or exposure to agents such as arsenic, has been shown to reduce the severity of pancreatitis. The mechanisms by which HSP70, and other heat-shock proteins, ameliorate the severity of pancreatitis are not known but this issue is of considerable interest since there exists the potential for preventing or reducing the severity of pancreatitis by interventions that promote HSP70 expression.

Finally, the observation that there may be a window of therapeutic opportunity between the onset of pancreatitis and the commitment of events governing the severity of an attack may identify the optimal timing for initiation of treatment designed to minimize pancreatitis severity.

Class I PI3Ks signal downstream to G protein-coupled receptors or tyrosine kinase-coupled receptors. They yield phosphatidylinositol 3,4-bisphosphate, phosphatidylinositol 3,5-bisphosphate, or phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5trisphosphate as their products, and cause downstream activation of the key regulatory protein Akt/PKB. Class II PI3Ks signal downstream to growth factor receptors and generate the same products as class I PI3Ks. Class III PI3Ks are constitutively active enzymes that phosphorylate only phosphatidylinositol and yield only phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate as their product.
