[Gastrinemia and heparin stimulated secretion of diamine oxidase on the course of diabetic autonomic neuropathy].


Gastrin influences polyamine synthesis in the enterocytes, which can lead to increased DAO activity. In diabetics with autonomic neuropathy (AN), a higher than normal gastrin concentration was found. However, in diabetics with enteropathy, a low level of plasma DAO activity was discovered. The purpose of this study was to investigate gastrin secretion and… (More)
