  • Although low doses of histamine (less than 150 nM/kg.hr) stimulate pepsin secretion, higher doses inhibit pepsin secretion in a dose-dependent manner. To better histamine stimulation of pepsin, histamine was used at doses at the lower end of the dose-response scale in five dogs with gastric fistula. Five doses of histamine below the ED50 for acid, viz, 9, 22.5, 67.5, 90 and 112 nM/kg.hr in 45-min steps, provided values for pepsin secretion from which Ed50 = 11.4 nmol/kg.hr (i.e., about 1/12 the… CONTINUE READING
