[Caerulein and the test meal: a comparison of their effects on pancreatic exocrine secretion in the dog].

Abstract

Relatively small doses of caerulein (10, 20, 40, 100 ng/kg/h) were given to conscious dogs with chronic duodenal and gastric fistulas and the exocrine pancreatic response was compared with that obtained by a test meal. Test meal stimulated pancreatic secretion was nearly equivalent to that achieved with 10 ng caerulein/kg/h. Plasma secretin levels did not significantly change during test meal stimulation.
