Trypsin is considered to be a specific indicator of pancreatic damage. This assay is useful in the evaluation of acute pancreatitis. Trypsin levels reach a maximum volume of five- to tenfold the upper normal limit and remain elevated for four to five days after the onset of abdominal pain. Trypsin determination may also be of value in evaluating patients with cystic fibrosis and pancreatic carcinoma.
