BACKGROUND Postprandial consumption of alcoholic beverages with high ethanol concentration (so-called digestifs) is a widespread custom to alleviate dyspeptic symptoms after comprehensive meals. Alcoholic beverages preprandially ingested inhibit gastric emptying rate of solid meals. However, the effect of a postprandial intake has never been studied in a controlled manner. METHODS In 10 healthy male subjects gastric emptying was repeatedly studied by ultrasonography after the intake of a 576… Expand
Effect on gastric function and symptoms of drinking wine, black tea, or schnapps with a Swiss cheese fondue: randomised controlled crossover trial
Gastric emptying after a Swiss cheese fondue is noticeably slower and appetite suppressed if consumed with higher doses of alcohol, and this effect was not associated with dyspeptic symptoms. Expand
Coffee for morning hunger pangs. An examination of coffee and caffeine on appetite, gastric emptying, and energy intake
No significant effects of decaffeinated coffee, caffeine or their combination were detected, however, the consumption of caffeine and/or coffee for regulation of energy balance over longer periods of time warrant further investigation. Expand
Acute Exercise and Gastric Emptying: A Meta-Analysis and Implications for Appetite Control
The results suggest that exercise intensity, mode, duration and the nature of meal/fluid ingested all influence GE during and after acute exercise. Expand
Caffeine, coffee, and appetite control: a review
Examination of the evidence regarding coffee and caffeine’s influence on energy intake and appetite control indicated that coffee administered 3–4.5 h before a meal had minimal influence on food and macronutrient intake, while caffeine ingested 0.5–4 H before a Meal may suppress acute energy intake.

Abdominal Ultrasound for the Evaluation of Gastric Emptying Revisited.
Functional ultrasonography is a non-invasive method used for research or practical purposes that brings an insight into gastric emptying in healthy individuals, and in individuals with functional and motility gastrointestinal disorders. Expand

THIS WEEK’S RESEARCH QUESTIONS 1284 What should you drink with a cheese fondue—white wine or black tea, and is a shot of schnapps good for the digestion? 1286 Is the Danish belief that submergingExpand
An unusual cause for anaemia.
Atypical presentations are a rare occurrence, especially in non-endemic areas, but should be borne in mind when investigating anaemia with hypergammaglobulinaemia and splenomegaly, which may be absent in the acute or early stages of the disease confusing the diagnostic process. Expand
Risk Factors and Prevalence of Helicobacter pylori Infection in Persistent High Incidence Area of Gastric Carcinoma in Yangzhong City
Yangzhong city had a high prevalence of H. pylori infection and was related to several risk factors, including dyspeptic diseases and history of peptic ulcer and gastroenteritis. Expand

The effect of ethanol and alcoholic beverages on gastric emptying of solid meals in humans.
Ethanol in low concentrations of 4 and 10% (v/v) prolongs gastric emptying of solid meals; this inhibitory effect is not dose-dependent and does not depend on the caloric content of the meal. Expand
Effect of ethanol and some alcoholic beverages on gastric emptying in humans
Pure ethanol in concentrations of 4%, 10% and 40% v/v inhibits gastric emptying andCaloric content and non‐alcoholic ingredients in alcoholic beverages produced by fermentation, but not in those produced by distillation, are most likely responsible for this effect. Expand

It is indicated that strenuous exercise shortly after a meal has little effect on postprandial gastric secretory or motor function in humans. Expand
Effect of ethanol ingestion on postprandial gastric emptying and secretion, biliopancreatic secretions, and duodenal absorption in man
The effects of oral ethanol taken with food on the gastric emptying rate of a solid-liquid meal as measured by a dual radioisotope technique in six normal subjects and the Gastric response (emptying and secretion), biliopancreatic secretions, and duodenal nutrient absorption after an homogenized meal as evaluated by a gastroduodenAL intubation-marker perfusion technique are studied. Expand
Action of ethanol and some alcoholic beverages on gastric acid secretion and release of gastrin in humans.
The action of pure ethanol on gastric acid secretion is related to its concentration: concentrations of 1.4% and 4% are moderate stimulants; concentrations of 5%-40% have no effect, or rather an inhibitory effect; beer and white wine, but not whisky and cognac, are potent stimulants of gastric Acid secretion. Expand
Gastric emptying and gastrointestinal absorption of alcohol ingested with a meal
Alcohol ingested with a meal is mainly and rapidly absorbed in the stomach; the contribution of the small intestine below the angle of Treitz to alcohol absorption is negligible. Expand
Alcoholic beverages produced by alcoholic fermentation but not by distillation are powerful stimulants of gastric acid secretion in humans.
Alcoholic beverages produced by fermentation but not by distillation are powerful stimulants of gastric acid output and release of gastrin, which is most probably produced during the process of fermentation and removed during the following process of distillation. Expand
Relationships between gastric emptying of solid and caloric liquid meals and alcohol absorption.
It is concluded that gastric emptying of liquid may be influenced by solid food and that the rate and pattern of solid emptying may be modified by the presence of liquid. Expand
Effect of coffee on solid-phase gastric emptying in patients with non-ulcer dyspepsia.
The data suggests that there may be some ingredient in coffee that promotes gastric motility, but this effect is counteracted by intestinal feedback, and the net effect is not significant. Expand
The simultaneous emptying and absorption of ethanol from the human stomach
Emptying and absorption of ethanol from the stomach were studied using test meals of 350 ml containing phenol red and ethanol (60 mg/ml) instilled into the stomachs of 7 healthy subjects. EmptyingExpand
