  1. Each section was scored according to the criteria described by H. E. V. DE COCK et al. in 2007 [15]. The histological grading ranges from 0–3 (0 = Not present; 1 = Mild or < 25% of the pancreatic parenchyma; 2 = Moderate or present in 25–50% of the parenchyma; 3 = Severe or > 50% of the parenchyma)
  2. The severity of AP was classified according to the total score as follows: 0 = none 1–3 = mild 4–6 = moderate 7–9 = severe
