Abstract

The amylase to creatinine clearance ratio (Cam/Ccr) was measured in 22 healthy volunteers, 69 patients with normal amylase values (Group 1) and 59 patients with elevated serum and/or urine amylase levels (Group 2). In normal controls the mean Cam/Ccr was 2.55 ± 1.54 SD, the upper normal limit being 5.56. The mean Cam/Ccr in Group 1 was 3.74 ± 1.9 SD; in Group 2 it was 12.3 ± 9 SD in patients with acute pancreatitis and varied from 3.36 to 4.37 in the other subgroups with hyperamylasemia. These differences are statistically significant (p
