Clinicians and scientists discuss the current knowledge about the role of hydrolytic enzymes in the pathophysiology of human diseases, focusing on research to determine the basic biochemical structure of the enzymes and how they can be used in diagnosis. Among the 32 topics are serum cholinesterase in diabetes, pancreatic cholesteryl esterase in health and disease, and phospholipase action in the generation of modified LDL.
