The human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DR expression on monocytes and plasma Interleukin (IL)-10 levels are key indicators of immune response during the acute phase of severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). We designed a pilot study to investigate whether ω−3 fatty acids (FAs) supplemented parenteral nutrition (PN) could improve immune response in SAP patients. Fifty-six SAP patients were enrolled (28 patients in each group) and received isocaloric and isonitrogenous parenteral nutrition, providing 1.0 g… CONTINUE READING
