Immunochemical Methods of Pancreatic Enzyme Determination

  • B. Göke
Conference paper


Recent advances in immunochemical and radioimmunological methods have reduced some of the methodological problems accompanying measurements of pancreatic enzymes in the serum (see review in [1]). This brief overview deals with newly developed immunological techniques of pancreatic enzyme measurements in the blood which may have clinical relevance in the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis.
