We have determined the serum gastrin response to a standard test meal in 13 unoperated patients with combined fasting hypergastrinaemia (more than 150 ng/l) and basal hypersecretion of gastric acid (BAO more than 10 mmol/h). In 10 of 11 patients with proved of presumptive Zollinger-Ellison syndrome the peak postprandial rise in serum gastrin concentration was less than 50 per cent of basal value. The integrated gastrin response to feeding ranged from 71-9 to 211-8 mug/lX 150 min. In 2 patients… CONTINUE READING
