OBJECTIVES:Until now, there was no international consensus on the diagnostic criteria for autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). As for serologic criteria, the HISORt criteria use elevated immunoglobulin (Ig) G4 alone, whereas the Asian diagnostic criteria include elevations of total IgG or IgG4, or the presence of autoantibodies. This study was mainly aimed at determining whether the combined measurement of total IgG and IgG4 could increase the diagnostic sensitivity for AIP while maintaining… CONTINUE READING
