Activation peptide of carboxypeptidase B in serum and urine in acute pancreatitis

Appelros, Stefan LU ; Thim, L and Borgström, Anders LU (1998) In Gut 42(1). p.97-102
Abstract
The pathophysiology of acute pancreatitis involves activation of the pancreatic proenzymes. Levels of the trypsinogen activation peptide in urine in acute pancreatitis has been shown to correlate with the severity of disease. However, this peptide is unstable in urine and, because of its low molecular mass, difficult to measure. Procarboxypeptidase B has a larger activation peptide which could be more suitable for analysis in serum and urine.
