The effect of gastrin on the migrating motility complex (MMC) was studied in seven healthy subjects. It was hypothesized that a potential effect of gastrin on the MMC may result from intraluminal acidification through increased gastric acid secretion. Therefore, antroduodenal manometry and intraluminal acidity were recorded simultaneously. The effect of gastric acid inhibition, with and without administration of gastrin, on antroduodenal motility and intraluminal acidity was also evaluated and… CONTINUE READING
