The staphylococcal enterotoxin serotype B (SEB)-induced enteric intoxication and the immediate-type reaction in the skin of unsensitized monkeys was used to define whether agents competing with SEB for target cell receptors may inhibit pathophysiological effects. For this purpose a duodenal provocation test was developed by use of a pediatric gastroscope,(More)
Data on the natural course of gastrooesophageal reflux disease are sparse. One hundred and sixty six patients with typical reflux symptoms (heartburn and/or acid regurgitation) and pathologic pH monitoring (reflux time > 8.2% upright and/or > 3.0% supine) were studied. The patients were followed up by questionnaire and interview for a mean of 41 (seven to(More)
In a placebo-controlled, double-blind, crossover, and randomized trial, the effect of 30, 60, and 90 mg of oral omeprazole on peptone-stimulated gastric acid secretion and synchronously measured gastrin release was studied in 8 healthy subjects. Peptone-stimulated acid output was reduced dose-dependently by 42%, 80%, and 92%, respectively. In spite of a(More)
Telenzepine is an analogue of pirenzepine with a higher potency and similar selectivity for M1-receptors in animals. In this placebo controlled, double blind, randomised study mean peptone stimulated gastric acid secretion (mean +/- SEM) of 10 male healthy subjects (58 +/- 6 mmol H+/3 h for placebo) was significantly and dose dependently inhibited by oral(More)
Direct immunofluorescence (DIF) and the unlabelled antibody peroxidase-antiperoxidase (PAP) methods were compared on a quantitative basis with regard to visualization of IgA immunocytes and gastrin cells in human gastric mucosa, and secretin cells in canine duodenal mucosa. With both DIF and PAP, two serial sections from 13 biopsy specimens were evaluated(More)
BACKGROUND Combination therapy using omeprazole and amoxycillin can cure Helicobacter pylori infection, but data are controversial concerning the efficacy of this regimen. The present study investigated varying doses of omeprazole combined with a standard amoxycillin dose on duodenal ulcer healing and eradication of H. pylori, in order to find an optimal(More)
A modern approach to the evaluation of combined effects of two active drugs, A and B, in clinical trials is described, based on modern understanding of actions and interactions of drugs which act at distinct molecular sites. It rests on a comparison of observed combined effects with calculated effects of independent action of A plus B--greater than(More)
In this study, the pharmacokinetics, efficacy, and tolerability of 25 and 100 micrograms of octreotide given t.i.d. for 7 days subcutaneously were investigated in 12 healthy male subjects. Serum concentrations of the drug were well reproducible within 1 wk. Octreotide significantly raised 24-h median intragastric pH on day 1, but no longer on day 6.(More)
