We investigated the cause-and-effect relationship between plasma motilin levels and migrating myoelectric complexes (MMCs). Each dog was implanted with a set of eight bipolar electrodes on the small intestine. Premature phase IIIs were initiated by morphine bolus injections. Plasma samples were assayed for motilin and gastrin. All spontaneous and morphine-initiated phase IIIs were associated with peaks of plasma motilin, which always occurred after phase IIIs had started in the proximal… CONTINUE READING
