ABSTRACT
The article discusses the results of a study concerning the significant elevation of serum interleukin-18 (IL-18) levels in patients with acute pancreatitis. The results indicate that the administration of IL-18 or reinforcement of production of IL-18 in the late phase may be of therapeutic importance for immunostimulation against subsequent infectious complications in the disease.
