Pancreatic Diseases

  • Martin H. Floch
Part of the Topics in Gastroenterology book series (TGEN)


Although the pancreas is the major site of production of enzymes necessary for digestion of fats and proteins, information concerning its role in human nutrition has gathered slowly. The nutritionist, physiologist, and gastroenterologist have all been intrigued by its role, but because of its anatomic position it has remained an organ difficult to study.
