One of the approaches to overcome poor lipid digestibility is the supplementation of diets offered to the weaning pigs with appropriate exogenous lipase [6].
As the inconsistent results and lack of studies, especially the digestive physiology, this objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of dietary energy and lipase levels on growth performance, nutrient digestibility, serum profiles, intestinal morphology, small intestinal digestive enzyme activities, biochemical index of intestinal development and noxious gas emission in weaning pigs.

Three enzymes derived from pancreatic acinar cellsamylase, lipase and the proenzyme trypsinogen have been tested as biochemical markers of acute pancreatitis; and although elevated serum pancreatic enzymes support clinical diagnosis of acute pancreatitis, numerous reports however describe the lack of usefulness of serum enzyme levels to determine the prognosis in acute pancreatitis as well.
