Rats were given injections of caerulein, secretin, or a combination of these two peptides subcutaneously 3 times daily for 5, 10, or 15 days. Caerulein produced significant dose- and time-dependent increases in pancreatic weight and content of DNA, RNA, protein, amylase, and trypsinogen. Secretin produced significant increases in pancreatic weight and(More)
Pentagastrin (1.5 mg/kg), 20% pure natural cholecystokinin (CCK, 37.5 Ivy dog U/kg) or secretin (25 microgram/kg) was given in a depot carrier subcutaneously to rats 3 times daily for 15 days. The dose of CCK and secretin was submaximal for pancreatic secretion, whereas the dose of pentagastrin was supramaximal for gastric acid secretion. The pancreatic wet(More)
Antral ulcers were produced in unanesthetized rats in 3 hr by simultaneous intravenous administration of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) and gastric perfusion with 0.15 M HCl. Intravenous infusion of ASA alone or gastric perfusion with HCl alone produced no antral ulcers. Plasma salicylate levels ranged from 250 to 350 microgram ml-1. 16-16 Dimethyl(More)
This study was undertaken to determine the role of food in indomethacin-induced gastrointestinal lesions. Following a 24- or 48- fast, rats were given various amounts of rat Chow pellets or various types of diets (high-bulk non-nutritive diet, equicaloric liquid diet, or liquid diet containing cellulose) for 1 h. One half hour after the feeding, 30 mg/kg of(More)
