This large retrospective study is the first report on HTG-AP in a U.S. multi-ethnic minority population. Early detection and counseling on behavioral risk factors in patients with severe HTG may help in reduction of pancreatitis risk. The predictive modelling suggested in this study, if externally validated, may be a useful tool for individualizing therapy in such patients.
