Gastric emptying of ingested acid and its effects on plasma gastrin and secretin in duodenal ulcer subjects.


Abnormal acid production or handling is thought to be involved in duodenal ulceration. Gastric emptying of 25 mmol hydrochloric acid (250 ml 0.1 M solution) was studied by using an isotopic method in control and ulcer subjects. Plasma gastrin and secretin levels were simultaneously measured. Gastric emptying was significantly faster in ulcer subjects using… (More)
