It has recently been reported that the oral administration of cysteamine causes a depletion of somatostatin content in various tissues of the rat concomitant with duodenal ulcer. Producing somatostatin deficient animals is important for understanding the role of somatostatin in the homeostasis of ingested nutrients. The present experiment was designed to investigate the acute and chronic effects of cysteamine on canine splanchnic D-cells. When 2 g of cysteamine was administered to normal…
