Abstract

Background/Aims: The aim of this study was to compare the dynamic thiol/disulfide homeostasis and ischemia modified albumin (IMA) concentration between the patients with mild acute pancreatitis (AP) and healthy subjects.

 

Materials and Methods: Twenty-eight patients with AP and 35 age and sex matched healthy individuals were included in this study. Serum thiols/disulfide and IMA concentrations were measured and compared between the two groups.

 

Results: The mean serum native thiol (SH) and total thiol (TT) levels were significantly lower in AP group than in the control group (224.7±80.3 μmol/L vs. 314.66 ± 87.5 μmol/L, p<0.001; and 273.3±76.8 vs. 346.9±79 μmol/L, p<0.001, respectively). Disulfide (SS) levels were significantly higher in AP group than in the controls (24.2±11.1 μmol/L vs. 16.1±9.9 μmol/L, p<0.054). There were no differences in the IMA concentration and the mean IMA / albumin ratio (IMAR) in both groups. 

 

Conclusion: We found that mild AP may affect the serum thiol and disulfide levels, and cause impaired thiol /disulfide homeostasis.
