Pancreatic Enzymes: Pancreatic enzymes are a group of digestive fluids found in the pancreatic juice that are produced by the pancreas that play a role in digestion. The pancreatic enzymes include amylase, trypsin, and lipase. Pancreatic enzymes are produced by the pancreatic acini, which secret them though the pancreatic duct and then into duodenum of the small intestine.

Pancreatic enzymes are stimulated by the hormone cholecystokinin. Conditions that can afflict the pancreatic enzymes include cystic fibrosis, pancreatic cancer, and pancreatitis.
