[Adaptive duodenal endocrine cell changes after antrectomy. Experimental study in the rat].

The known gastric endocrine relationship between "G" cells and "D" cells is altered after the loss of antral "G" cell population after antrectomy, leading to physiologic adaptative changes over the cell population producing gastrin and somatostatin in the duodenum, replacing thus the endocrine function of the resected gastric antrum. In this experimental… CONTINUE READING
