Abstract

A significant elevation of serum catalase activity was observed in 26 of 28 patients with acute pancreatitis and in 9 of 32 patients with acute cholecystitis. Serum amylase activity in the same groups was significantly elevated in 22 and in 2 cases respectively. Serum amylase remained elevated for 1 to 3 days, while catalase remained elevated for 10 to 14 days. It is concluded that the measurement of serum catalase activity is complementary to the determination of serum amylase in the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis.
