OBJECTIVES The early identification of patients at risk for severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) is crucial. Serum markers of disease severity have been assessed including interleukin (IL)-6 and IL-8; however, their predictive accuracy has varied significantly across studies. We conducted a meta-analysis to assess the accuracy of IL-6 and IL-8 at predicting SAP. METHODS We identified relevant published articles and calculated pooled sensitivities, specificities and likelihood ratios using the… CONTINUE READING
