In the course of an ultrastructural study on peroral gastric biopsy specimens that were obtained from patients with chronic atrophic gastritis, peculiar pathological changes of endocrine cells were observed and correlated with functional and hormonal data on the patients. An increased number of G (gastrin) cells was found in hypergastrinemic patients. These cells could be divided into a "light" (probably hyperfunctioning) and a "dark" (probably exhausted) type. The light type of cell was… 
Ultrastructural characterization of fundic endocrine cell hyperplasia associated with atrophic gastritis and hypergastrinaemia
TLDR
Fundic endocrine cell hyperplasia occurring inhypergastrinaemic CAG is in most cases cytologically similar to that found in other hypergastrinemic conditions, in which the gastrin-dependent ECL cells were already found to prevail, which explains why fundic carcinoids arising in CAG are mostly composed of E CL cells.
Multiple carcinoids and endocrine cell micronests in type a gastritis. Their morphology, histogenesis, and natural history
TLDR
It is suggested that the development of both the ECM and the carcinoids is highly related to the atrophic change of the fundic mucosa and a trophic action of subsequently raised serum gastrin in type A gastritis and that the both lesions arise from the pseudopyloric glands or atrophic fundic glands.
Pernicious anaemia and mucosal endocrine cell proliferation of the non-antral stomach.
TLDR
The findings of endocrine cells proliferations in seven cases of pernicious anaemia indicate that this may be an adaptive change that occurs frequently and provides the basis on which carcinoids, less frequently, develop.
Carcinoid (ECL Cell) Tumor of the Oxyntic Mucosa of the Stomach: A Hormone-Dependent Neoplasm?
TLDR
It is proposed that hypergastrinemia is responsible for the hyperplastic response of endocrine cells of the oxyntic mucosa in both chronic atrophic gastritis and ZES, and the subsequent study of single cases of fundic carcinoid tumors extended this hypothesis by linkinghypergastRinemia to the development of neoplasms from the same endocrine cell population.
Argyrophil cell hyperplasia associated with chronic corpus gastritis in gastric ulcer disease.
TLDR
It is concluded that focal AC hyperplasia is a common phenomenon in gastric ulcer patients and is inherently related to the spontaneous development of atrophy in the corpus mucosa of these patients.
The syndrome of gastric argyrophil carcinoid tumors and nonantral gastric atrophy.
TLDR
The results suggest that nonantral gastric atrophy predisposes to Gastric carcinoid as well as to gastric carcinoma.
Endocrine cells in the human oxyntic mucosa. A histochemical study.
TLDR
The results indicate that the examination of a fairly small number of specimens from the main body of the stomach may be sufficient for assessing the frequency of endocrine cells in the oxyntic mucosa of individual patients.
A novel subtyping of intestinal metaplasia of the stomach, with special reference to the histochemical characterizations of endocrine cells
TLDR
The selective populations of the endocrine cells including glicentin-containing cells, Grimelius-positive argyrophil cells without argentaffinity and intestinal-type enterochromaffin cells frequently formed hyperplastic foci in the intestinalized areas, where the other gut-type and proper gastric-type endocrine Cells were scarcely noted.
Enterochromaffin-like cells and gastric argyrophil carcinoidosis.
TLDR
The pathobiological relevance of ECL cells and the mechanisms of their inducible hyperplasia and neoplasia may be of considerable significance in understanding the regulatory role of gastric endocrine cells.
