SummaryDuodenal content from subjects without pancreatic disease and 3 patients with chronic pancreatitis were studied after Pentagastrin (I.C.I. 50, 123) administration. The output of lipase and trypsin in patients with pancreatitis was lower than that in control subjects. Cholecystokinetic activity of Pentagastrin was evidenced by an increase of bilirubin content in duodenal aspirate.It is concluded that Pentagastrin may be used as a stimulant in pancreatic secretory studies.
