Photometric Method for Estimation of Elastase Activity.∗
TLDR
This colorimetric method for the estimation of elastase activity has the advantages of rapidity and simplicity when compared with the gravimetric and nitrogen procedures. Expand
SURGICAL IMPLICATIONS OF ACUTE PANCREATITIS: An Analysis of Eighty-Five Cases
THE RECOGNITION of increased blood diastase values in instances of acute pancreatitis by Elman 1 and the subsequent development of a simple, rapid and accurate method of determining the diastaticExpand
Carbohydrate tolerance, blood ketone levels and nitrogen balance after human trauma (fractures).
TLDR
It is agreed that mechanical trauma in a well nourished person results in a negative nitrogen balance after a lag period of two to three days, and this so-called catabolic phase lasts for a varying number of days, reaching a maximum about the seventh day. Expand
STUDIES ON HYPOALBUMINEMIA PRODUCED BY PROTEIN-DEFICIENT DIETS : I. HYPOALBUMINEMIA AS A QUANTITATIVE MEASURE OF TISSUE PROTEIN DEPLETION.
TLDR
There is a constant relationship or partition in the loss (or gain) between plasma albumin and total body protein induced by diet, and a formula is developed for estimating the degree of total tissue protein deficiency from the value of the serum albumin concentration alone. Expand

Misinterpretation of elevated blood diastase due to impaired renal clearance.
TLDR
Clinical evaluation of the number of patients with a blood diastase of more than 200 indicated that less than 10 of them had a clinical picture consistent with pancreatitis or parotitis, which is unusual in patients with diseases other than acute pancreatitis. Expand
