Amylase activity in tracheobronchial secretions of laryngectomized patients.
TLDR
This study proves the presence of amylase in tracheobronchial secretions of laryngectomized patients with a normal lung at a level between x and y and the quantitative analysis of the amyl enzyme activity is discussed. Expand

TLDR
This paper reviews the laboratory evaluation of acute pancreatitis with emphasis on the rationale, derivation, and specificity of the amylase/creatinine clearance ratio. Expand
Hyperamylasemia with carcinoma of the lung.
TLDR
The primary lung tumor in the one patient with tissue ava... may be associated with metastatic carcinoma of the lung. Expand
Histologic findings and amylase contents of the pancreas and parotid gland of rats with experimental peritonitis or ileus.
TLDR
There was no significant relation between serum amylase levels and the grade of histopathologic changes of the pancreas in rats with peritonitis or ileus. Expand
The hourly rate of urinary amylase excretion, serum amylase, and serum lipase
TLDR
Although the hourly rate of urinary amylase excretion is of little value alone, it may provide useful additional evidence of pancreatic disease and it could be useful in the diagnosis of relapsing chronic pancreatitis. Expand
The hourly rate of urinary amylase excretion, serum amylase, and serum lipase
TLDR
Raised levels of serumAmylase and lipase with a normal rate of urinary amylase excretion/hour were found in chronic renal failure and these levels were higher in patients with no evidence of renal or gastrointestinal disorder. Expand
A simple, rapid screening test for serum amylase.
Urine diastase in the evaluation of pancreatic disease.
TLDR
A large quantity of starch solution (obtained commercially from Aloe Supply Company, St. Louis, Missouri) is substituted for iodine solution (iodine indicator, 0.002 N, contains 0.252 gm. of iodine and 20.0 gM. of KI) at room temperature. Expand
The laboratory diagnosis of pancreatic disease.
The diagnosis of pancreatic disease is gradually improving, largely as a result of increasing experience in correlating laboratory data reflecting normal and altered physiologic function and newerExpand
