Pancreatic function tests are most commonly used to diagnose chronic pancreatitis. These tests include tests which document exocrine or endocrine gland insufficiency and tests which instead measure gradations of decreased secretory capacity. The tests in the former category generally become...

Pancreatic autoantibodies (PABs) are found in 31% of patients with Crohn's disease (CD), but they do not correlate with the activity of intestinal disease or the incidence of acute pancreatitis. Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency has been observed in patients with CD....

The risk of developing postoperative complications following pancreatic resection depends mainly on how difficult it is to perform a proper pancreaticointestinal anastomosis. We have evaluated the serum pancreolauryl test, a rapid tubeless pancreatic function test, as a simple preoperative predictor...

Faecal elastase 1 (FE1) and the pancreolauryl test (PLT) are widely used for the non-invasive diagnosis of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI). Whether one of these two tests is superior for the detection of mild-to-moderate EPI is the subject of controversy....

Clinical chemistry, 44(4), 869-875 (1998-05-15)
The serum pancreolauryl test has limited sensitivity for detecting mild pancreatic insufficiency. The aim of this study was to optimize the serum pancreolauryl test so as to increase the probability of positive results in patients with chronic pancreatitis. The study...

Indirect pancreatic function tests are frequently used in the clinical routine as complementary tools for the diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis (CP) because of their noninvasiveness and simplicity. We analyzed the clinical efficacy and routine application of a modified serum pancreolauryl...

To determine the frequency of abnormal pancreolauryl tests in untreated and treated adults with coeliac disease and to see whether abnormalities in treated coeliac patients correlate with the degree of recovery of intestinal morphology or brush border enzyme activity. Pancreolauryl...

Fifteen patients with chronic pancreatitis were qualified for surgical treatment on the basis of the results of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, pancreolauryl test and glucose tolerance test. Significant changes according to Cambridge scale correlated with exocrine-endocrine pancreatic failure. In patients with...

The pancreas is a mixed gland that takes part in the digestion of nutrients and in the homeostasis ofglycemia. Chronic pancreopathy is the cause of secretory insufficiency, characterized by an inflammatory process that leads to fibrosis of the pancreas, with...

Archives of disease in childhood, 68(5), 649-652 (1993-05-01)
There is a pressing need for a simple non-invasive test of exocrine pancreatic function for use in children. The pancreolauryl test has been modified by the addition of a second marker (mannitol) to achieve a single day test without the...

The aim of the presented study was a comparative evaluation of the three indirect pancreatic function tests: pancreolauryl-test (PLT), NBT-PABA test and faecal chymotrypsin (CH) efficacy in detecting pancreatic exocrine function impairment in advanced chronic pancreatitis (acp). 30 patients with...

The urine pancreolauryl ratio (uPLR) and, more recently, the faecal pancreatic elastase-1, are widely used for the noninvasive diagnosis of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. Both tests have previously been validated against 'gold standard' tests of pancreatic function, but their use in...

The exocrine pancreas produces many of the enzymes responsible for the digestion of food. Severe alterations in exocrine pancreas function cause malabsorption which predominantly affects fats. Unfortunately, because it is a deep organ the pancreas is a difficult target for...
