The sensitivity and specificity of the pancreolauryl test was evaluated in comparison with the NBT-PABA test, the estimation of fecal chymotrypsin and fat, and the secretin-pancreozymin test in 168 patients with and without pancreatic disease. The overall sensitivity rate was as follows: pancreolauryl test 90%, NBT-PABA test 86%, fecal chymotrypsin 66%. In patients with pancreatic steatorrhea the sensitivity of the pancreolauryl test was 100%, the NBT-PABA test 97%, and the fecal chymotrypsin… CONTINUE READING
