In a total of 71 subjects (19 controls, 24 patients with non-pancreatic gastrointestinal disease, and 27 patients with pancreatic disease) an oral pancreatic function test using N-benzoyl-L-tyrosyl-PABA (BT-PABA) was performed with simultaneous determination of the serum para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA). Urinary excretion of PABA was significantly less (p less than 0.001) in patients with chronic pancreatitis (n = 12) and pancreatic carcinoma (n = 10) than in controls and in patients with non… CONTINUE READING
