Table 2 Mean, standard error of the mean (SEM) and range of bile nucleation times (NT) in controls, idiopathic pancreatitis, gallstone pancreatitis and gallstones without pancreatitis.

From: Idiopathic pancreatitis is a consequence of an altering spectrum of bile nucleation time

Group Mean +/- (SEM) NT in days p- value
Controls (n = 30) 12.74 +/- 0.4(11-15 days) **
Idiopathic pancreatitis (IP) (n = 16) 3.1 +/- 0.24 (2- 6 days) ** #
Gallstone pancreatitis (GP) (n = 9) 1.73 +/- 0.2 (1- 4 days) ** #
Gallstones without pancreatitis (GWP) (n = 30) 1.73+/-0.2 (1-3 days) ** #
NT of establish gallstone disease (EGD = GP + GWP) 1.73/- 0.2 (1-4 days) #
