PLA 2 was measured by monoclonal antibody Immunohistochemistry assay in the serum of 20 patients with acute pancreatitis and 15 patients with other abdominal pain.We discovered that PLA 2 value in the serum of all patients with acute pancreatitis , including severe necrotizing form and mild edematousform, was significant elevation on the first day after hospital admission, showing positive or stronger positive . The clinical sensitivity was 100%; Last 3-9 days, even longer. Within the certain scope, PLA 2 value changes according to the change of disease , may reflect the extent of pancreatic tissue destruction and provide help to prognosis of pancreatitis . PLA 2 value of patients with other abdominal pain , such as:cholecystitis, peritonitis and appendicitis, also increase, and even show stronger positve. PLA 2 isn't specific to pancreatitis. It is only an important reference marker.
