Effect of epidermal growth factor on the ontogenic response of rat gastric mucosa to H+.

Abstract

Epidermal growth factor (EGF) plays an important role in the development of the neonatal intestinal tract and affects the integrity of adult stomach. This study examined the effects of EGF on the development of mucosal responses to luminal H+ in rats of various ages. Mucosal response to luminal acid (300 mN) was measured in rats between 10 and 60 days after… (More)
