We investigated the physiological role of cholecystokinin (CCK) on gastric emptying and acid secretion in seven conscious dogs with gastric cannulae. Two hundred milliliters of a 4% amino acid meal was given via the cannula, and both gastric emptying and acid output were measured concurrently using a dye-dilution technique. Gastric emptying of the liquid(More)
Short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) alter ileal and colonic motility, but their effects on duodenojejunal motility are unknown. Simultaneous jejunal manometric recordings and hydrogen breath tests after lactulose were performed in eight healthy subjects during continuous duodenal infusion of either saline or SCFAs. These experiments were conducted in the(More)
