The effect of proglumide (400 mg/kg), spantide (400 g/kg) and ranitidine (20 mg/kg) on pancreatic secretory and trophic response to bombesin (10 micrograms/kg) was studied in the rat. Drugs were administered alone or combined with bombesin three times daily for 5 days. Saline-treated rats were used as controls. At the end of treatment, animals were anaesthetized and pancreatic juice was collected for 1 h after caerulein stimulation (1 microgram/kg intraperitoneally). Afterwards, rats were… Expand
