Original Articles


The effect of chlorophylla on experimental acute pancreatitis in guinea pigs was investigated. Pancreatitis was induced by intrapancreatic infiltration of a sodium taurocholate solution. Animals treated with intrapancreatic or intraperitoneal injections of chlorophylla showed higher survival rate than untreated controls.
