Carboxyl Ester Lipase in Acinar Cell Carcinoma of Pancreas

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 266)


The association of subcutaneous fat-necrosis with pancreatic carcinoma or pancreatitis has been known for almost 50 years [1,2]. Although the importance of lipase production as well as its dissemination and lipolysis of the involved tissues has been well established in this syndrome [2,3], the exact identification of lipase(s) that are involved and their relationship to the type of pancreatic tumor is not clear.
