Background/Aims: Despite various scoring systems and imaging methods, it is hard to predict the severity and the course of acute pancreatitis (AP), thereby necessitating better and more reliable markers. Since inflammation plays a key role in the pathogenesis of AP, we sought to determine whether histone, which is a novel inflammatory marker, may play a role in the prediction of severity and prognosis.
