To determine the usefulness of information provided by measurement of serum amylase activity in the evaluation of dogs for pancreatitis, the relationship of amylase activity to lipase activity in 713 paired serum samples was investigated by statistical analysis. Little change in mean amylase concentration was found until lipase values exceeded 800 U/L. The ranges of amylase activity (mean +/- 2 SD) were essentially the same for dogs with no pancreatitis (0 to 100 U of lipase activity/L) as for… Expand
Pancreas-specific lipase concentrations and amylase and lipase activities in the peritoneal fluid of dogs with suspected pancreatitis.
Peritoneal fluid cPLI concentration was highly sensitive as a complementary diagnostic tool in a group of dogs with suspected acute pancreatitis and lipase activity was not as sensitive, but may also support a diagnosis of acute Pancreas-specific lipase immunoreactivity in dogs. Expand
Serum lipase activities and pancreatic lipase immunoreactivity concentrations in dogs with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency.
Serum lipase activity is not limited to the exocrine pancreas in origin, whereas serum PLI is derived only from the exosterone-rich exocrine Pancreas, unlike in serum TLI concentrations. Expand
Changes of serum amylase, its isozyme fractions and amylase-creatinine clearance ratio in dogs with experimentally induced acute pancreatitis.
The evaluation of serum amylase and its isozyme fractions was indicated to be useful for the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis in dogs. Expand
Patient-side assay of lipase activity correlating with pancreatic lipase immunoreactivity in the dog.
It is suggested that FUJI DRI-CHEM lipase activity would be helpful for diagnosis of pacreatitis in dogs and, in particular, that it can be used as a patient-side assay and contributes to immediate treatment. Expand
Serum Phospholipase A2 in Canine Acute Pancreatitis
In an attempt to find a more specific serum test for dogs to diagnose acute pancreatitis serum phospholipase A2 (PLA2) activity was measured and in sixteen out of the 28 dogs with acute Pancreasitis, serum PLA2 activity was increased. Expand

Initial data would suggest that serum fPLI is the most sensitive and specific diagnostic test for feline pancreatitis, but until further data are available, serum f PLI should be used in conjunction with other diagnostic tests to arrive at a diagnosis of f cat pancreatitis. Expand

Canine pancreatic-specific lipase concentration has good specificity overall in dogs without pancreatitis but is less useful in dogs with milder pancreatitis, and both false-positive and false-negative results occur. Expand
Effect of pancreatectomy on plasma activities of amylase, isoamylase, lipase and trypsin-like immunoreactivity in dogs.
Assessment of circulating TLI provides a more sensitive and specific indicator of pancreatic exocrine mass than plasma amylase, lipase or isoamylase activities and indicates that TLI is derived from the pancreas alone. Expand
Sensitivity of serum markers for pancreatitis in dogs with macroscopic evidence of pancreatitis.
Serum cPLI and Spec cPL concentrations showed the highest sensitivity for the diagnosis of pancreatitis in this group of patients and further studies will be required to compare the specificity of these serum markers and thus determine their overall clinical utility. Expand
Assessing the severity of canine pancreatitis.
Whether laboratory testing currently available is able to provide prognostic information in canine pancreatitis is determined to be questionable. Expand
