Abstract  As an important pathological feature of acute pancreatitis, apoptosis may occur in multiple organs and relate directly to the progression of disease. It is mainly controlled by the apoptosis gene and also influenced by inflammatory mediators. We summarize here the roles of the main inflammatory mediators (e.g., NO, TNF-α, TGF-β1, IL-10, NF-κB) during the pathologic process of acute pancreatitis.
