Ghrelin is a gut peptide that is secreted from the stomach and stimulates food intake. There are ghrelin receptors throughout the gut and intracerebroventricular ghrelin has been shown to increase gastric acid secretion. The aim of the present study was to examine the effects of peripherally administered ghrelin on gastric emptying of a non-nutrient and nutrient liquid, as well as, basal and pentagastrin-stimulated gastric acid secretion in awake rats. In addition, gastric contractility was… CONTINUE READING
