    Introduction: Acute Pancreatitis (AP) is an inflammatory condition having varied presentation ranging from a mild self-limiting illness to a severe disease with multi organ failure. Excessive recruitment of leukocytosis is an important pathophysiological feature and Myelo-Peroxidase (MPO) forms an important part of neutrophil induced inflammation. The current prognostic criteria are complex and cumbersome. Materials and methods: The present cross sectional pilot study serial estimation of plasma MPO levels were done at the time of admission and on 3, 7 and 14 days in patient of Acute Pancreatitis (n=64) patient with acute abdominal symptoms (n=15) otherthan acute pancreatitidand healthy volunteers (n=15). The values of serum MPO levels were correlated with Ransons`s score, Apache score, CT severity index and patient developing local and syst.. View More»
