Gastric secretory studies in humans with impromidine (SK&F 92676)--a specific histamine H2 receptor agonist.


Impromidine (SK&F 92676), a potent selective histamine H2-receptor agonist in animals has been studied in healthy male volunteers. Impromidine 10 micrograms kg-1h-1 i.v. produced near maximal acid secretion and cimetidine 2 mg kg-1h-1 inhibited this output by a mean of 65% in 5 subjects. The log dose-response curve to impromidine in 5 subjects was linear… (More)
