Histamine content in human gastric mucosa: Its relation to the pentagastrin-stimulated acid secretion and to selective-gastric vagotomy with drainage


No correlation between histamine content of corpus mucosa and maximum response to pentagastrin existed in normal human subjects and in patients suffering from gastric diseases. Normal histamine concentrations were found in duodenal ulcer patients who did not show any reduction in acid output despite complete vagotomy. A relatively low mucosal histamine… (More)
