Abstract: © 2015 University of Kragujevac, Faculty of Science. All right reserved. Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a common, potentially lethal, acute inflammatory process with a highly variable clinical course. The aim of this study was to analyse early changes in the serum concentrations of pro- and anti-inflamatory cytokines in the peripheral blood of patients with the interstitial form of acute pancreatitis (IAP) and necrotic acute pancreatitis (NAP), especially in those patients who had lethal outcomes. The prospective study enrolled 52 patients who were divided into IAP (65.38% of patients) and NAP (34.62% of patients) groups. The serum levels of interleukins (IL) 6, 8 and 10, together with tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha were measured on the 1st and 3rd day of hospitalisation. Significantly higher values of IL-6, IL-8 and IL-10 were found on day 1 and 3 in NAP than in IAP. IL-6 was significantly higher on both days of measurement, whereas IL-10 on the first day and IL-8 on the third day were significantly higher in the group of patients who did not survive in comparison with patients who had the interstitial form of AP. In conclusion, the data from this study showed that immune suppression and excessive immune stimulation in the first three days after admission could indicate the development of NAP and a potentially lethal outcome.
