) Finding a unique pattern in the triglyceride composition of patients with hypertriglyceridemia that increases the chances of getting pancreatitis and which can serve as a laboratory predictive tool for patients and define them as a at-risk population.

2) Finding the typical fatty acid composition in triglycerides for patients at high risk of pancreatic acute inflammation that can be used to develop unique drugs for pancreatic acute inflammation caused by high levels of triglycerides.


The study will be conducted at the Sheba Medical Center Lipid Institute, number of participants: 10 healthy participants, 10 participants with hypertriglyceridemia without prior pancreatitis and 10 participants with hypertriglyceridemia and at least one case of severe pancreatitis in the last 5 years.

A total of 30 participants Participants who are found suitable during their visit to the Lipid Institute Clinic or during their hospitalization at Sheba Medical Center will receive an explanation of the study, will be asked to sign a consent form. And check the fatty acid levels. Healthy volunteers who meet the inclusion conditions will also be asked to sign a consent form and their blood will be taken and kept frozen for further study
