BACKGROUND Exogenous use of the intestinal hormone glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) lowers glycaemia by stimulation of insulin, inhibition of glucagon, and delay of gastric emptying. AIMS To assess the effects of endogenous GLP-1 on endocrine pancreatic secretion and antro-pyloro-duodenal motility by utilising the GLP-1 receptor antagonist(More)
The gut-born incretin hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) delays gastric emptying. To elucidate the mechanisms by which GLP-1 affects gastroduodenal motility and glycaemia, we studied the effects of exendin(9-39), a potent GLP-1 receptor antagonist, on gastroduodenal motility and pancreatic hormones. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled,(More)
OBJECTIVE Regulation of postprandial (pp) plasma glucose excursions is complex. Insulin and glucagon are thought to play the predominant role. Nevertheless, only 50% of the variation in pp plasma glucose excursions is explained by variations by the latter. Theoretically, gastric emptying (GE) should be another important factor. However, its impact on pp(More)
