The effect of aging on gastric and duodenal mucosal prostaglandins has not been reported. Gastric and duodenal mucosal prostaglandin concentrations were measured in 46 healthy adults, 35 of whom were relatively young (21-40 years old) and 11 of whom were considerably more elderly (aged 52-72 years). Mucosal biopsy specimens were obtained endoscopically from the fundus, antrum, duodenal bulb, and postbulbar duodenum, and extracts were assayed for prostaglandin F2 alpha and E2 concentrations by… CONTINUE READING
