BACKGROUND It is unknown whether measurement of markers of oxidative stress can improve the prediction of severity of acute pancreatitis. METHODS Consecutive patients admitted with a diagnosis of acute pancreatitis were divided into mild (n = 62) and severe (n = 23) groups based on the Atlanta classification. Plasma oxidative stress markers were measured within 24 h of admission and included ascorbic acid (endogenous antioxidant), protein carbonyl (a marker of protein oxidation… CONTINUE READING
